Mrs. Marjorie Sue Edwards of Campbellsville was born on January 11, 1939 in Louisville to the late Jessie and Ardella (Schmidt) Provenozano Purvis. She departed this life on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at the Norton Pavilion in Louisville, being 82 years, 10 months, and 3 days of age.

She was a retiree of the Cmapbellsville Independent School District, having worked primarily as a bus moniter, and a former employee of Fruit of the Loom.
