Obituary for Edward L. Spain

Our Father looked down from Heaven above, And lifted up His child into His arms of Love. Spain, Edward L. of Cumberland, VA left us for his eternal home on Thursday, September 20, 2012. We rejoice in knowing that Edward, his parents, Linwood and Josie Spain, and his brother, Roy, are now celebrating together in God’s presence. Edward is survived by his wife, Nell Mitchell Spain, his children, Sheryl Foresta and Russell Spain (Darby); five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. His brother, Horace Spain (Joni) and three sisters, Thelma Owen (Tommy), Myrtle Crawford and Sallie Wright (Emmett) also survive him. The family would like to acknowledge our neighbor and caregiver, Susie Robinson and a special niece, Lou Helms, for faithfully helping to care for Ed during his long illness. Their support and the support of the team members from Hospice of Virginia, made each day brighter for Ed, and his gratitude showed in the smile on his face at the mention of your names. David, the acres of cut grass are a testament to your love. Ed cherished his extended family of Mitchells and Daniels as well as his church family and his Colonial Pipeline family. Your visits and support made us constantly aware that there truly are angels among us. A celebration of Ed’s life will be held from Hatcher Baptist Church, 5 Gravel Hill Road in Cumberland, VA on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 11:00AM. A private interment will be held at Sunset Memorial Park in Chester, VA. In Ed’s memory, please consider organ donation or a memorial gift to a charity of your choice.
