    Those we lost in 2014

    Lauren Faye Edwards: loving daughter, supportive sister and caring friend

    Lauren was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She loved her family and friends, her University of Arizona Wildcats, her students and most of all she loved life. Her amazing spirit and electric smile could light up a room. She was born with cystic fibrosis, had a lung transplant at 16, graduated magna cum laude with a degree in elementary education and most people never knew the health battles she fought every single day. Since she was a little girl, she dreamed of becoming a teacher. A scholarship was established in Lauren’s name to assist aspiring teachers who want to educate the little ones Lauren loved so much.

    Our lives will never be the same. We miss you every minute of every day. We will always treasure our memories and carry you in our hearts. -- Mom, Dad and Lance
