Edith Ellen Tompkins

Edith Tompkins, 98, of Nashville, Tenn., died on Dec. 11, 2021.

She was born in Dongola, the daughter of Calvin and Bessie Keller. 

Edith passed away peacefully holding the hands of those she loved dearly. The hands that she helped create, the hands that she nurtured, were the ones that grasped tightly as she made her transition. 

She loved deeply and without hesitation. It didn’t matter if you were a child of her own or someone she just met, she loved you with the same intensity. 

Her laugh could brighten even the darkest moments. Her humor and humility kept us all entertained and forever adoring. She will truly be missed by those remaining and embraced by those who have been awaiting her arrival. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister,Wanda Fuller; her husband, Roy Tompkins Jr.; and her daughter, Karla Kay Reynolds. 

She is survived by her son, Kevin Tompkins; a son-in-law, Jack Reynolds; granddaughters Lincy Reynolds and Kaylie Taylor; and a great-grandson, Rawlee Taylor. 

The family will be celebrating her life in a private ceremony.
