Edith Inez (Colgrove) Gustafson, age 53, of Quinlan passed away on Sunday, June 12, 2022. She was born December 23, 1968 in Dallas, Texas to David Lee and Glenda Ann (Stogdill) Colgrove.
Edith married her best friend Marshall Wayne Gustafson on July 26, 1997. They were blessed with a large, loving family, having five children together, raising them to be outstanding citizens of the law. Edith instilled her strength, kindness, and knowledge into each of her children, always telling them, “Knowledge is power.” She was a mother, wife, best friend, therapist, Grandmere, Yaya, and Granny. She loved her grandchildren dearly.
She spent her days reading anything and everything, watching General Hospital, enjoying a swim at the pool, and collecting pictures. Edith was a social butterfly who never met a stranger. She never forgot an anniversary or birthday, she loved to give random gifts, and she never said “no” when a grandchild wanted a book. She was the best!
She is survived by her husband, Marshall Wayne Gustafson of Quinlan; sister, Kristi Pendergraft of Gilmer; children, Larry Wayne Adams II and wife, Jamie Lynn of Quinlan, Casey Allen Adams and wife, Lorissa of Wills Point, Philip Michael Gustafson and wife, Jessica of Caddo Mills, Katy Joyce Gustafson of Mesquite, Hannah Leeann Ruiz and husband Kevin William of Quinlan; grandchildren, Abigail Arnold, Cole Gustafson, Elizabeth Greenleaf Adams, Everette Thomas, Shelby Adams, Colby Gustafson, Anthony Brantley, Stephen Adams, Nina Brantley, William Ruiz, Elizabeth Brantley; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews (she was an aunt to everyone).
Edith was preceded in death by her parents, David and Glenda Colgrove; and brothers, Morris Colgrove and James Tanner.
