Elease Edwards was the third daughter of six girls born to Frank and Anna Edwards In Point, Texas on February 23, 1911.

Elease moved to Tyler and became a licensed cosmetologist. Being single and owning her own business provided her the flexibility to support her sisters. In later years she retired as a caregiver professional.

Though Elease never had children of her own, she embraced the role of surrogate mother and grandmother to her own family and others. Her nurturing and support to family and friends continued until death.

Preceding Elease in death are her parents, Frank and Anna Edwards and five sisters.

She is survived by her sisters' children and their children, cousins and a host of other relatives and friends.
