"Know that death is not an end, but a transition to a place free of pain and suffering." The word of God reminds us in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8: " I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."

Edna Beatrice Lewis-Ehirim
Announcing with heavy hearts and yet with gratitude to
Almighty God, the end of her physical life and the beginning of her heavenly
life for our beloved Edna on Friday, July 29th.
Edna was born June 19, 1955 to the late Charles Fielder Lewis, Sr. and
Annie Rebecca (Carroll) Lewis. She was
their first born daughter. Edna exemplified
her role as a big sister; she was a great teacher, nurturer, conversationalist,
and an inspiration. She was admired by
many, especially her nieces and nephews.
Edna was educated in Prince George’s County schools. She graduated from Frederick Douglass High
School in 1973. After graduating, she moved
to Baltimore, MD to attend Morgan State University. Edna then began her career in Baltimore. On May 26, 1990, Edna married the love of her life Ambrose
Chukwuma Ehirim. On October 17, 1992
they welcomed the birth of their only child Marcus Ehirim. In March 2004 with the passing of Edna’s
sister, Linda, they graciously welcomed her nephew, Jalen, into their home and
raised him. Edna was well known for her art: drawings and paintings. She
loved to cook and had an angelic singing voice. Edna was a caring and dutiful wife, devoted mother, amiable
daughter, a sincere and loving sister, dedicated aunt, vibrant sister in-law
and a true friend with so much love to give. This PHENOMENAL woman truly left an everlasting imprint on
all the lives she touched and her presence will be sorely missed. Edna
leaves to cherish her fond memories: husband, Ambrose Ehirim; son, Marcus
Ehirim; nephew, Jalen Lewis; five brothers, Reginald and Ronald Johnson, Sr.,
M.D. (Barbara), Henson Sr., Charles Jr., and Joseph Lewis; two sisters, Lisa

and Brittany Jackson, Ronald Johnson, Jr. (Danielle), Brandon Baugh, Sr.
(Miriam), Gerald Adams, Jr., Anthony (Nadine) and Christopher Lewis-Makle; nine
great nieces and nephews, Christiana Grant, Hailee and Madison Estep, Brandon,
Jr. and Elijah Baugh, Malia and Ronald Johnson, Michael Harper, Jr. and Camryn
Lewis; two aunts, Edith Myers (Girard) and Ophelia Neale; brothers and sisters
in-laws, Lilian Awudi (Usman), Ana Ayodele (Joshua), Benedicta Ifudu, Nicholas
Ehirim (July), Romanus Ehirim (Rose) and Bridget Ehirim and a treasured
constellation of family, friends and colleagues. In addition to her parents, she was preceded
in death by her sister, Linda Lewis; brother, Pernell Johnson and nephew,
