Edwena Louise Hobbs, age 87, a loving wife, caring mother, doting grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 17, 2022, in Winter Haven surrounded by her immediate family. She was born May 3, 1935, near Plant City, Florida and was a lifelong resident of Plant City, Lakeland and Auburndale.
