Obituary for Edward Lee Sydnor
Brother Edward Lee Sydnor was born November 28, 1926, to Arthur and Berta Davis Sydnor of Halifax, VA. He departed this life on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

In 1931, he moved to Nottoway County where he united with Morning Star Baptist Church in Burkeville, VA. He became a dutiful member. Edward was educated in the Nottoway County School System.

Edward worked hard helping his parents raise his nieces and nephews. He worked on farms and various other jobs.

He left Burkeville in search of a better job and pay. In 1945, he was drafted into the United States Army and received a Honorable Discharge in 1946. He later moved to Sparrows Point, MD where he lived and worked.

He later married the love of his life, Miss Cora Mae Williams and they moved to Maryland to live. After his retirement, they moved back to Burkeville to live. He rejoined Morning Star Baptist Church and activated his Christian duties, serving Sunday School, Usher Board, and Trustee Ministry until his health began to fail, and he was called home to be with God.

Edward was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Agnes and Estelle; seven brothers, Linwood, Jesse, Howard, Major, Author, Joe and Willie. He leaves to cherish his memories: a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
