After a brief illness, Paula Jane Edge, 66, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, August 6, 2016. Paula was born in Clarksburg, WV, the daughter of James I. and Elizabeth A. Edge. Moving to Gainesville in 1973, she attended Santa College and for the past 40 years she has been an employee of the Dept. of Psychiatry in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida. Her most recent position was Program Assistant. A faithful member of the SW United Methodist Church, Paula was a greatly loved Bible teacher, gaining the admiration of all by her determination to never allow physical hardship to prevent her full participation in the ministry of the church. She was passionate about her faith, her family and friends, and her work in the Dept. of Psychiatry. She had many additional interests including fine art, nature, and the Florida Gators! Paula is survived by her son, Joshua Edge, of Gainesville. She was pre-deceased by her parents and siblings. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 11 am at SW United Methodist Church, 2400 SW Williston Road, Gainesville with a reception following at the church.
