Edith "Edie" Stancombe, 73, of Chesterfield passed away surrounded by her family on December 15th, 2017. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Donald Stancombe; sister, Myrtle Alexander, her children, Melissa and Jason; brother and sister-in-law William and Betty Butler, their daughters, Erin, Crystal, and Cassandra; and a great-nephew, Ewan. Edie was born on March 9th, 1944 at Fairview Farm in Beaverdam, VA to Benjamin "Spiller" and Bessie Mills. She graduated as part of the first class at Patrick Henry High School along with many friends for whom she remained close with for the rest of her life. When Edie was younger she attended Mt. Olivet Baptist Church where she remained a member. Many will likely remember Edie for her love of travel and the palm readings she gave to help at blood drives and social events. Her vibrant personality and wonderful sense of humor will be sorely missed by those who knew her best. The family would like to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support. Family and friends will gather to celebrate Edie's life from 3-7 PM on Tuesday, December 19th at Nelsen Funeral Home, in Ashland, VA. Services will be held the following day from 2 to 3 PM with interment to directly follow at the family cemetery in Beaverdam, VA. Online condolences may be sent to www.nelsenashland.com.
