On September 14th, one of the strongest voices for the Lola B. Walker Homeowner’s Association, Edwina Prime, passed away.

Born Edwina Winifred Marie Davies on November 24, 1935 in Nassau, Bahamas, Prime recounted in Vizcaya Museum’s Documentary, Black Voices, her memories of growing up in the Fox Hill community of Nassau.

December 30, 1960, Prime moved into Coral Gables with her late husband Carl Prime, to the home she lived in until her passing.

Prime was a fierce advocate for her community. She fought arduously for the construction of a Community Center, for increased lighting in their streets and for improved City services. Prime was the president of the Lola B. Walker Homeowner’s Association.

Prime was an active member of Christ Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove, one of Miami’s oldest church communities, dating back to 1901.

Prime is survived by sons Carl and Edwin, daughter Winifred Marie, daughter-in-law Pat, and granddaughters Autrela, Samantha and Edwinae. A private memorial service was held to remember her life.
