Johnson City: Wilbert R. Edmunds, 91, went home to be with his Lord November 17, 2022. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Nancy I. Edmunds in 2013. He is survived by his children William R. and Linda Edmunds of Summerville, SC, Scott A. and Helen Edmunds of Johnson City and Cathy Jo Edmunds of Binghamton; grandchildren Nicholas (Melissa) Edmunds, Brian (Tara) Edmunds, Laura (Micah) Brassard, Joshua Edmunds, Heather and Ryan Edmondson, Michael and Jessica McManamon, Steven Edmunds and Allison Kramer; 10 great-grandchildren; two sisters Joan Latsha and Gladys & Charles Bryce; sister-in-law Linda and Morris Gard; several nieces and nephews. 

He was born October 15, 1931 in Hazleton, PA.  Bert served in the US Army Signal Corps during the Korean War. After moving to Johnson City he eventually worked as the store manager at the Johnson City A&P store. He enjoyed gardening, watching old movies and was a fan of the NY Yankees and Giants. He had a dry sense of humor and was always ready with jokes and riddles, many of which he repeated across generations of his family. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Johnson City, where he had been a trustee and sang in the choir for many years. Above all else, he was a dedicated and loving husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed attending his grandchildren's performances and athletic events. The family is very grateful to both Lourdes Hospice and Mercy House for the care given to Bert during his final days.
