Alice W. Edwards


Alice W. Edwards was born on April 28, 1934 in Big Piney, Wyo., to Marshall and Ona Gurney. She graduated from Big Piney High School in 1952. She met her best friend and husband Rodger Edwards while working on the ranch in Pinedale while she cooked and he worked cattle. They were married June 1, 1952 in Big Piney, Wyo. They had three children: Ed (Cathy) Edwards, Bob (Sandy) Edwards and Helen (Terry) Snow. After both working many years of ranching in Wyoming, they moved to St. Anthony, Idaho, in 1966. She enjoyed cooking, camping, long drives and, her favorite, being with her family.

On April 16, 2021, our sweet mother and grandmother peacefully passed, surrounded by all of her family.

She will be missed by her three children and their spouses, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; her brothers Lyle (Glenda) Gurney and Joe (Connie) Gurney.

She was welcomed with open loving arms by her husband, parents, grandson Skip, sister Lela, brother Fred and daughter-in-law Cathy. 

We, as a family, want to sincerely thank Briarwood Assisted Living and Solace Hospice Care for all the great care and friendship they gave to her.

There will not be any formal services for Alice and the family will inter her in the Pinedale Cemetery in Pinedale, Wyoming at a later date.
