Obituary

Marion Joan "Mikie" Edwards, 86 passed away Sunday April 26, 2020 at the Doylestown Hospital. Born December 7, 1933, Mikie was a lifelong resident of Lambertville, and was proud to say that she had lived on almost every street in town during the course of her life, but once she and her husband of 64 years. Choc moved on to Buttonwood Street she found the most important place in life to her, her home. Throughout her 50+ years on the street she befriended every neighbor she encountered and her constant presence greeting everyone while sitting on her porch will be missed. Any of her neighbors would say that she could always be counted on to take care of a house or pet sit while they were away. She also made it her business to teach a few generations of Buttonwood Street kids how to swim in her pool as she wanted them to be safe, and as so many of the Tettemer cousins have pointed out, she was the family barber for them when they were young. She was a great Mom, but by far her favorite role in life was that of "Gram-mom" to her grandchildren. Every day spent babysitting or hanging out with any of her grandchildren was one of the best days ever as far as she was concerned. She spent many years volunteering for any and all events held in Lambertville from serving banquets at the Rescue Squad or one of the firehouses to grilling for decades at the Shad Festival in the town she adored. She often enjoyed saying that she wore many hats throughout her life. Mikie loved her years of driving a bus for SHR, and had documented her many unique experiences in a memoir she shared with family and friends titled, "My Years on Crazy 8". During her summers off she pursued her passion for house painting, and many homes in Lambertville benefited from her skills throughout the years. She also enjoyed sign painting and at one time several businesses and organizations in town had a hand crafted sign that she fashioned from start to finish. A Former Majorette for the Lambertville Drum and Bugle Corps; Founding Member and long time Head Coach of the Lambertville Girls Softball League; Lambertville Rescue Squad Auxiliary member; Columbia and Union Fire Company Auxiliary member; four term Lambertville Public School Board member; American Legion Auxiliary Member and long time bartender; Founding Member and Manager of the Lambertville American Legion Women's Softball Team; selected as honored Graduate by Lambertville High School Alumni Association; and chosen by her beloved neighbors as the unofficial "Mayor of Buttonwood Street".  Daughter of the late Titus Tettemer, Sr. and Beatrice Doan Tettemer and sister of the late Dorothy Heater, Caroline Palmer, William Tettemer; Titus Tettemer, Jr., her twin brother, Marvin Tettemer and Cleon Tettemer, she is survived by her husband Donald “Choc” Edwards, her son Donald Edwards Jr., and his wife, Christine, her daughter Karen Sharp and her husband, Michael, one brother Robert Tettemer and his wife, Joyce, one sister Nancy Clark and her husband, James , her grandchildren: Jessica Miller and husband, Jeffrey,  Stephen, Aili, Aiden, and Austin Edwards, Meredith and Jarrett Sharp, and Lauren Wood, special friend Barbara and her husband Bruce Wood and many wonderful nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held in her honor at a later date as social distancing would not have been a concept that she could have adhered to, and so Choc has made the decision to wait to celebrate her life once Lambertvillians are able to greet each other from less than 6 feet away and without a face mask or gloves. Donations can be made in her name to the Lambertville Fire Department, N. Main St. Lambertville, NJ 08530.

I have know Miki and Choc since I was a child. Miki and my Mom, Eleanor Smith, worked together at the Acme. Choc and my step-father, Ace Smith, were fishing buddies. I am very sorry to read Miki passed but I know she is an angel in Heaven as she was on earth. My sympathy to Choc, Dirk, Karen and her grandchildren, also to her brother, Bob and her sister, Nancy, who used to be our babysitter. So many wonderful memories of Mikie and her wonderful family. May God Bless you all. ~ Phyllis Morgan Peters, Homosassa, Florida

I met Mikie in the early 80s when my friend Carolyn moved to Buttonwood Street. I, as an outsider from Stockton, soon learned the extent to which one person on a short block in a small town can positively affect the atmosphere of a neighborhood. Mikie was a genuine and irresistible force for good. It is not often that one meets such a person. I will always consider myself fortunate that I did. Mikie, to me, was the heartbeat of Buttonwood, the best of Lambertville, and the kind of soul this world will sorely miss. ~ Judith BEbout/Ringel, Stockton, New Jersey

Mikie Edwards brought joy, wisdom, neighborly aid, civic concern and involvement, good will, boundless energy, and a positive attitude to everyone she knew in equal measure. She was the heart of her family, street and town, and an example to us all. It was a privilege to have known her and an honor to have been her neighbor. May her memory and legacy be a comfort to her family. ~ John Ringel, Stockton, New Jersey

We lived around the corner from Mikie for 18 years. If you loved Lambertville you knew who she was. She was just good people. She gave and gave. A better Mayor than the Mayor ever was or will be. My sympathies to all who loved her. Somehow rest in peace just doesnt work for Mikie. The woman never sat still! Not to Rest In Peace but to thrive in joy. ~ April & Tom Tierney, Hillsborough, New Jersey

When I first bought my home on Buttonwood in 1994, Mikey shook my hand and said welcome to Buttonwood; the Best Street in Lambertville! She was the Ambassador of Goodwill and never asked for any compensation for all the help she gave neighbors. I came home from work one night and found she had taken down my drain pipe from the front of my house and replaced it. She said she had noticed that it was clogged and that it needed to be fixed. I hadnt a clue and probably never wouldve thought of it. She found it natural to help others and didnt need a thank you in return. She just did it as it was the right thing to do. Well Mikie, today we all say thank you for showing us how to live in grace. ~ Kate Grow
