VALDOSTA — Edna Lawrence Rumfelt Armstrong, 90, of Valdosta died on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, at South Georgia Medical Center. She was born on Oct. 29, 1922, in Murphy, N.C., to the late James S. and America Montgomery Lawrence. After graduating from Belmont High School in Belmont, N.C., she began a life of travel and adventure. She had lived in many parts of the world such as Iran, Karachi, Pakistan, the Panama Canal Zone, just to name a few. During her lifetime, she had lived in or visited an estimate of 23 countries, making her a true globe hopper.

She was a member of the East Belmont Baptist Church in Belmont, N.C., and attended Morningside Baptist Church here in Valdosta.

She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Phyllis and Bobby Moore and Nanci and Bill Kendall; two granddaughters and their spouses, Angel and Giles Godwin and Amy and Jason Witherspoon; three great-grandchildren, Callie Jayne Witherspoon, Lanier Godwin and Mallory Godwin, all of Valdosta; a sister, Lena McCall, age 101, of Gastonia, N.C.; a special niece and her husband, Pat and Bill Blackard of Winston-Salem, N.C.; and a loving caregiver, Barbara Jenkins of Dallas, N.C.; numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husbands, Lewis Rumfelt and Hayes Armstrong, as well as six siblings.
