Obituary for Edward N. Jefferson, Sr.

Edward Norman Jefferson, Sr, age 74, departed this life early Monday morning on March 14, 2022. “Bill” as he was affectionally called was the oldest son born in Amelia County, Virginia to the late Thomas and Julia Jefferson on October 11, 1947. He accepted Jesus Christ as his savior and was baptized at an early age and joined Promise Land Baptist Church.

Edward attended Russell Grove through 7th grade in a time when young black males would then go off to work in order to make a living. He worked in the county for a time delivering groceries in the community. He later was employed by Scott’s Pallets where he worked as a carpenter until he became disabled due to a work-related injury.

“Bill” enjoyed cooking, gardening, dancing, listening to Otis Redding and visiting people in the community whenever he could. He also loved to paint in his spare time. He was a man that loved his family, was polite, mannerable and would do anything to help another. Through good times and bad times, “Bill” when asked how he was doing would always reply, “Everything fine”.

He leaves a legacy of fond memories to: his wife, Mary; two sons, Dwayne (Junette) and Edward Jr; one daughter, Octavia Renia (Brandon); four grandchildren, Dexter, London, Faith and Byron; five brothers, Curtis (Patricia), Central “Butch” (Shirley), Kenny, Sammy and Larry (Sandra); one sister, Sharon Henderson; mother in law, Mary Belle Booker; four sisters-in-law; three brothers-in-law; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Viewing Friday, March 18, 2022 from 12 to 7PM. Funeral private.

Michael W. Hawkes Funeral Home of Amelia in charge of arrangements.
