EDDIE LUE WASHINGTON, the daughter of the late Lula Cobb Beard-Chapman and Edward Beard was born on September 17, 1920 in Ashport, TN. She grew up in Madison County, TN with her seven siblings: Lorraine, Nora Lee, Glady, Jessie, Genevieve, Carrie and Katie. She was educated in the Madison County public school system. Eddie Lue was a long-time member (church mother) at Paradise Emmanuel Tabernacle Baptist Church (Rev. Curtis Miller, Pastor).
During her lifetime, Eddie Lue held many job positions. She worked in a sweater factory, the Presbyterian Health System and was a care-giver for numerous families who loved her dearly as well as her family. Eddie Lue was often sought after to make her infamous candied sweet potatoes for her friends and church member, especially around the holidays. Eddie Lue was a giving and loving person and would help in any situation, all you had to do was ask.
Eddie Lue married Lonzie Hennings and through that union their daughter, Mary Louise was conceived. Eddie Lue was later married to Robert Washington who preceded her in death in 1964.
