Edna Perkins Elliott, 83, of 77 Parkview Circle, died peacefully at her home on Thursday, January 4, 2018 after an extended illness. She was an only child, the daughter of the late Fred Bradsher Perkins and Onie Irwin Bradsher Perkins. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Henry Elliott, Sr.

Surviving are her sons Robert Henry Elliott Jr. and wife Bonnie, Andrew Keith Elliott and wife Lisa, and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Edna was a lifelong member of Providence Baptist Church and a graduate of Roxboro High School, Watts School of Nursing, and Alamance Community College. She spent her career as a registered nurse at Person Memorial Hospital and retired after many years of service providing the most professional and loving care to all of her patients. Being a lifelong caregiver, she worked the night shift throughout her career so someone would be home with her 2 boys during the daytime while Robert worked out of town. After retirement she found a new passion in her 2nd career teaching in the Nursing Program at Piedmont Community College. Her love of teaching was shared by the many students she taught and she enjoyed being able to share the wealth of knowledge and experience to all that attended her classes.

As most people would know, she had many stories to tell while sharing her infectious spirit and smile with a good joke and a laugh. Robert and Edna enjoyed their big vegetable gardens so much every year during the summer, and she continued this for many years after Robertís passing. She loved to travel to the beach and mountains of North Carolina with her family and friends all of her life. Edna loved her church and missed so much not attending these past few years as her health declined. She affected so many lives while sharing her love of God with her family and friends around her. This has been passed down though many generations and will surely be missed by all.

Funeral service will be held 2 PM Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at Providence Baptist Church with the Rev. Dennis McDonald and the Rev. Donald Harris officiating. Burial and private graveside service will be held at Providence Baptist Church Cemetery immediately following the service. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service and at other times at the home of Edna Elliott.

Memorials may be made to Providence Baptist Church, 1319 Virgilina Rd., Roxboro, NC 27573, or to Home Health and Hospice of Person County, 355A South Madison Blvd., Roxboro, NC 27573.
