Obituary of Eddie Mae Sprinkel Rader

Please share a memory of Eddie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Eddie Mae Sprinkel Rader, 89, of Roanoke went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, September 20, 2022.  She was preceded by her parents, John and Pauline Rucker Sprinkel; husband, Robert S. Rader; son, Allen Rader; brother, Richard Sprinkel; sisters, Sue Markham, Betty Woody, and Nell Zaun; and brother-in-law, Earl Jones.

Mrs. Rader retired as a teacher with Roanoke City Public Schools after 35 years of service, and was a member of Vinton Baptist Church.  She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  Often described as the typical grandmother, she enjoyed cross stitch, sewing,  and making blankets and pillow cases for the grandchildren.  She was an avid reader and collector of ceramic roosters, birds and lighthouses.  These items along with her gallery of family photos made her home a warm inviting space to visit.  In addition to her sewing, reading and collecting, she loved to visit the beach, sit on the balcony, read a good book and watch the water.

Surviving is her son, Tim (Michelle) Rader; grandchildren, Eric (Hillary) Rader; Timothy Rader, Michael Rader; great grandson, Finn Rader; sister-in-law, Rachel Jones; brothers-in-law, Glen Markham and Sonny Zaun; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and other family members.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests that memorials be made to Vinton Baptist Church.
