NEWARK: Beulah “Lou” May (Edge), born in Hartshorne, OK, November 21, 1931 moved on to her heavenly home, October 30, 2017. Lou was married to Stonewall “Stoney” W. May for nearly 60 years, until his death in 2012.
She lived in Newark, Ohio for over 50 years where she retired (more than once) from Plaza Hardware. She relocated to Knoxville, TN after the death of her husband where she lived the remainder of her days. Lou was an accomplished basketball player, playing against the Harlem Globetrotters and was recruited by the All-American Redheads. Her athletic skills were only surpassed by the largeness of her heart. She was ‘donned’ a “child whisperer”, never meeting a child that she couldn’t conquer.
Even the ravages of Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia could not squelch the love that she had for all those around. She greeted everyone she met with a hug and a kiss and a huge smile. We are blessed to be called her family.
Preceded in death by brothers Lawrence, Tommy, Junior, and Herman Edge; and sister Jessie Couch.
Lou is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Larry and Valerie May; granddaughters Tiffany May (Ross), Victoria “Tori” May of Knoxville and son, Travis May of Atlanta, Georgia; one great-granddaughter, Andra “Andi” Lou Ross of Knoxville, TN; brothers Charlie Edge and wife Nancy, Newark, Ohio; Arlie Edge and wife Billie, Ponca City, OK, Chester Edge, Stringtown, OK; special nieces and nephews Julie (Edge) Cook (Paul) and family, Dallas, TX, Mark Edge and family, Memphis, TN, Jill (Edge) Donahue (Chip) and family, Houston, TX, Erin (Edge)Whitt (Jeramy) and family, Dallas, TX, Patty Davis (Brent) and family, Kiowa, OK, Jean Hart (Johnny), Newark, Ohio; and dear friend, Irene Williams, Knoxville, TN. Too numerous to mention are the nieces, nephews, and friends that experienced her love first hand. She was a genuine follower of Christ and is now basking in His presence.
The family will have a visitation on Sunday, November 12th, 2017, from 1-3pm at Brucker & Kishler Funeral Home in Newark, Ohio with a Funeral Service to begin at 3pm. Interment to follow at Newark Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Tennessee foundation www.alztennessee.org.
