The Life -The Legacy - The Woman
Edna L. Fields was born to the parentage of Mike and Jessie (McQuire) Stephens in Okmulgee County Oklahoma. In the early morning hours of April 20, 2021 Edna was lifted by the angels and carried to her heavenly father to rest and be at peace.
Edna lived a full and successful live, everyone who knew her would tell you she was a child of the most high God and she was a kingdom builder. She gave her life to Christ at a young age, she recently told me she heard the sermon about the dry bones and that and that led her to Christ. She earned her Doctorate Degree in Philosophy and Dimity. She wrote books, preached and taught, filling her fruit basket even unto today.
She was mom to eight children that she birth but many more would come to love and respect her has there mom. She was a comfort to the lost, she was an ear for the unheard and she was a bread basket to the hungry.
