Edmae Bialka, age 85, of Biloxi, MS, passed away on October 7, 2023, in Gulfport, Mississippi.


Edmae was a loving and sociable woman who found the most joy in being surrounded by her family and friends.

In her later years, Edmae faced the challenges of Dementia/Alzheimer's, but despite the difficulties, she remained a source of strength and love for her family. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth and kindness. Edmae attended Biloxi High School and later pursued her nursing education at Charity Hospital School of Nursing. She was a lifelong Catholic and worshiped at Our Lady of Fatima in Biloxi, Mississippi. In her free time, Edmae enjoyed quilting, drawing, and painting. These hobbies allowed her to express her creativity and bring beauty into the world.
