Funeral arrangements set for Rep. Ronnie Edwards
BATON ROUGE – Funeral service arrangements have been set for Louisiana Representative Ronnie Edwards who died Wednesday.
The viewing will take place from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on March 4 at the Living Faith Christian Center at 6375 Winbourne Ave. in Baton Rouge. The funeral service will immediately follow at 10 a.m.
The internment will take place at the Heavenly Gates Mausoleum, 10633 Veterans Memorial Blvd, in Baton Rouge.
Before leaving city government, however, Edwards sought to bring awareness to pancreatic cancer. At one council meeting, kids made a $500 donation to research after selling lemonade. Her efforts made her the focus of a 2 Make a Difference report from News 2's Sylvia Weatherspoon in July 2014.
