The late Ms. Marthine Helen Edwards was born on July 21, 1946 in Greenpond, South Carolina to Gladys Chisolm and the late Johnnie Fields.
Our God, in his infinite wisdom called our beloved Marthine from labor to reward on Monday afternoon, May 4, 2009.
Marthine was educated at the Ivenia Brown School in Greenpond, South Carolina.
She accepted the Lord as her personal savior at an early age and attended Mount Olive Church in Greenpond, South Carolina.
Early in life she ventured away from her birth place and relocated to New York City, where she became a member of Bethany Baptist Church and was very faithful in her service. Some of which included the Floral club, Usher board, Trustee Board, Girl Scouts, child care provider and a devoted member of the Sunday School Department.
She was deeply loved and a mother figure to many. She was affectionately known as sister. Throughtout her illness, she never lost a waiver in her faith.
One sister, Geraldine "Nancy" Polite preceded her in death.
She leaves to cherish her memories, her loving mother, Gladys Chisolm (Greenpond, South Carolina) her devoted daughters, Valarie Garris, Crystal Smith (Horace), Darlene Edwards, and Jessica Harris (adopted daughter) all from New York City. Seven Grand Children:Shaquana Garris, Kevin Garris, Kiara Edwards, Ciera Smith, Davon Edwards, Andre Harris, and Wayne Manswell. Her Siblings Mildred Smith of NYC, Mark Edwards (Margie) of South Carolina, Walter Johnson of SC, Isaac Johnson of California, Cynthia Levine (James) of SC, Laura Sims of SC, Katheline Bethea of SC, Barbara Singleton (Edmond) of Georgia, her nieces and nephews, her faithful companion, Alfred Bond of NYC.her devoted friends, Ada Belton and Elijah McPhail (Sara), and a host of other relatives and friends.

A private notation by me she made an awsome Sweet potato pie.
