Edna Smothers passed away May 5, 2020. Born in Hartsville, SC, she was a daughter of the late Frank Griggs and Carrie Easterling Griggs. Her family was her life, and she lived for them. Edna loved her job as a cosmetologist. As she said to her clients, “sit down and let me make you more beautiful.” She hated being alone, the dark and thunderstorms. Her last words repeatedly were, “I love you; I love everybody.” Edna was faithful her entire life. She loved the Roman Catholic Church, and the Basilica of St. Peter in Columbia, SC.

Edna is survived by her son, William Steve Smothers of Lexington; daughter, Cookie Griffin (Guy) of Gilbert; 4 grandchildren, Josh Treadway, Jessica Monts, Justin Smothers (Lindi), Kaitlin Smothers; 6 great grandchildren; sisters, Lou Phillips of Society Hill, SC, Barbara Teigen of Society Hill, SC. In addition to her parents, Edna was predeceased by her loving husband of 43 years, William Henry Smothers; brothers, Frank Griggs, Jr., Fred Griggs, J.J. Griggs; sister, Peggy Morris.

Edna’s family would like to thank the staff of Carolina Gardens at West Columbia, and Agape Hospice House for their loving professional care of Edna.
