Marjorie Addison Baird, 87, passed away peacefully after a period of declining health in the home of her daughter in Midlothian, Va., on February 5, 2018. She was a lifelong resident of Surry County until moving to Midlothian in the fall of 2015.

She continued to serve the public and help others for many years through her various roles at The Surrey House Restaurant, The Surrey House of Fashions and The Trellis in Williamsburg. Her church and community were important to her as evidenced by her active membership at Surry United Methodist Church, Surry Woman’s Club, Surry Business and Professional Women’s Club, Spring Grove Community Club and the Rusty Needle. She will long be remembered for her love of cooking and her beautiful needlework, both of which she generously shared with others. Her family was important to her, and she cherished the many vacations, celebrations, and activities she enjoyed through the years with them.

(Jerry) Edwards; two grandsons, James Wesley Edwards, III, and his wife, Sara, and Jeffrey William Edwards, in addition to numerous nieces and nephews.

Mrs. June Edwards was our children's fifth grade teacher and gave them the best foundation to succeed.
Even though we never met Mrs. Baird, just knowing Mrs. Edwards, we realize she must have been a wonderful lady.
Our hearts and prayers are with the family.
