“The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains. For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.” Katherine Louise Lovelace Edens, age 87, of Elizabethton passed away peacefully with her family by her side on June 2, 2014 at Sycamore Shoals Hospital. A native of Carter County, she was the daughter of the late Herman and Allie Ellis Lovelace. She had worked at Montgomery Ward in Elizabethton, Walmart and retired from Super X Drugs. She was of the Christian faith and a member of East Side Baptist Church. She loved shopping, walking, playing cards and traveling. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John Burley Edens; her son, Charles Edward Edens; a step-son, John Burley (Buddy) Edens; a step-daughter, Sudie Edens Buckles; her brothers, Reynolds, Charles and Clyde Lovelace; a sister, Mary Lovelace Carver and a son-in-law, John A. Ramsey III.
