Elizabeth’s closest friends gathered in Edenton, N.C. to say their final goodbyes.
Elizabeth Edwards was laid to rest Dec. 11 in Edenton, N.C. after a six year battle with breast cancer. The devoted mother was eulogized by eldest daughter Cate Edwards and close friends Hargrave McElroy and Glenn Bergenfield.
Elizabeth’s doctors announced Dec. 6 that continuing cancer treatment would be “unproductive” for the 61-year-old. Elizabeth leaves behind three children: Cate, 28, Emma Claire, 12, and son Jack, 10 — her eldest son Wade died in a 1996 car accident.
Elizabeth had been separated from her husband John Edwards since January of 2010 following reports of his affair with Rielle Hunter.
