Edwin Lee Stith

October 26, 1935 — May 25, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edwin Lee Stith, 87, of Hahira. Mr. Stith passed away at his home on May 25, 2023, after a lengthy illness. He was born on October 26, 1935, to the late Ralph Waldo Stith and Myrtice Webb Stith.

Mr. Stith dedicated 33 years of his life to working with the Georgia Department of Agriculture, where he served as an Agriculture Inspector Senior. He was known for his innovative work and was one of the first individuals to provide mobile feed mill grinding for farmers in and around Lowndes County.

A US Army veteran, Mr. Stith was a member of First Baptist Church of Hahira, where he found solace and community. He shared a loving bond with his wife Dianne, with whom he spent 54 wonderful years of marriage. Mr. Stith was a man of many talents, with his specific skills lying in metal fabricating and welding. He enjoyed his time spent outdoors, hunting and fishing, as well as watching westerns.

Mr. Stith is survived by his wife, Dianne Mathis Stith, his son and daughter-in-law Keith Stith (Jennifer), his daughter and son-in-law Missy Turner (Scott), and his son and daughter-in-law Joey Stith (Rachel), all of Hahira. He is also survived by his sisters, Elaine Dillard (David) and Peggy Shiver (Jimmy), both of whom he shared a special bond with. He leaves behind his grandchildren: Stuart Stith of Tallahassee, Bridger Turner (Taylor), Anna Cargile (Shane), Caroline Stith, Catherine Stith, and Joseph Stith, all of Hahira. He also leaves behind two great-grandchildren: Brinson Turner and Malachi Stith, also of Hahira.

Mr. Stith's funeral service will be held on Saturday, May 27, 2023, at 3:00 pm at First Baptist Church of Hahira, with Rev. David Gordon and Mr. Brant Lindsey officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm at the church. Burial will follow at Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery in Hahira.

Mr. Stith's memory will live on in the hearts of those he touched during his time with us. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
