Barbara Dawn Edwards, 70, passed away on July 17, 2019. 

She was born Oct. 9, 1948, in Stoneham, Mass., to Donald and Marjorie Edwards. When she was a child, her family moved to Lisbon Falls, Maine, where she lived until she graduated high school. She went to Carnegie Institute in Boston, Mass., to become a dental assistant.  She met and married  Charles Edwards on Sept. 5, 1970. She moved to Spearfish to live on the family ranch.  To this union they had three children, Eric (Tammi), Amanda, and Sarah Edwards all of Spearfish. 

Barbara worked for various dentists in Spearfish for many years. She eventually left that career to start working at Walmart Pharmacy, where she worked for many years before leaving to take care of her grandson. She was the proud grandma of three, Ethan Edwards, and Kelsa and Andrew Edwards, all of Spearfish.  Besides being a grandmother, she loved reading, word finds, and cross stitching in her free time.  

She is survived by her husband, children, grandchildren, six siblings, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, Donald  and Marjorie Edwards. 

Memorial service will be at 10 a.m. on Aug. 19, 2019, at Fidler-Isburg Funeral Chapel, with a lunch to follow.
