Edith Isabelle Anderson Garst passed away on September 11, 2017.

She was born on September 10, 1921, in Marshfield, Missouri to Luther and Myrtle "Mom" Anderson.

She married Robert M. Garst, Sr. June 27, 1940 in Marshfield, Missouri. They had two children, Judith Garst Brown, daughter, and Robert M. Garst, Jr., son.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Garst, Sr., and her son, Robert Garst. Jr..

She is survived by her daughter, Judith Garst Brown: five grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and two great great grandsons: her grandson Randy Brown and wife Carrie Anne, and his children, Ryan and his son, Hale; Hunter and wife Ashley, and their son, Dylan; and Sterling of Midland, Texas: granddaughter Debbie Rampick and husband Kim, and children, Taylor and Morgan of Carlsbad, California: granddaughter Heidi Westbrook and children, Holton, Witt, Rilyn and Hudson of Stephenville, Texas: grandson Kelly Brown and wife, Stephanie and children, Bode and Hartley, of Midland, Texas; grandson Vince Garst and wife, Tina, and children, Katelyn, Natallie, Amandalynn, Lauren, and Maggie of Celina, Texas and nephews and their families - Jack Anderson of Houston, Texas; Jerry, Bill, and Max Anderson and families of Springfield, Missouri.

Mother was a member of First United Methodist Church since late 1950's. She loved playing bridge with wonderful friends. She was a member of PEO Chapter PE, Permian Basin Landman's Auxiliary, Women's Club of Midland, Service Civic and Social Club, Los Comarados and En Emie Review. She was talented in so many ways and loved sewing, knitting, needlepoint, and cross stitching and in her earlier years painting. Also, some modeling in the 1950's.

Mother was so beautiful and full of grace. She could light up a room with her presence. She lost the love of her life on September 2, 2013. Dad so loved her and took great care of her. They travelled the world.

Our loss is beyond words. We were truly blessed that Mother (Memo) was ours.

There will be a memorial service on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in the First United Methodist Church.

I want to thank Roberta Rose, Florence Ware and Monica Banks for their loving care of Mother and Hospice of Midland.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a Veterans organization, the SPCA or to an organization of your choice.
