Edna was a great woman of faith and was dedicated to Christian service. She and her late husband labored together in the gospel where he pastored many Methodist churches in Alabama and Florida. She had such grace, a warm smile and an encouraging word. The writer declared: "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life... Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." In addition to her parents, her husband, Rev. George Scarborough and a son, Larry P. Scarborough preceded her in death. Survivors include her children: Georgia Anna Harriott, Jerry Scarborough (Susan) and Tommy Scarborough; grandchildren: Tony Thorne (Alicia), Jessica Green, Brian Scarborough, Douglas Scarborough, Andrew Scarborough, Adam Scarborough (Angelia), Amy Bright; great-grandchildren: Skyler Green, Haydn Thorne, Braylyn R. Gonzalez, Chelly Thorne, Carter Bright, Owen Bright, Ella Scarborough and Ava Scarborough; several nieces, nephews and other extended family and friends.
