Gladys Marie (Stephens) Custer, 81, gained her angels wings on Saturday, June 6, 2020. Her request for a “celebration” will be held on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 1:30 pm, located at 1861 Church Rd, McGregor, TX at New Day Family Fellowship. Visitation will be held prior to the celebration from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm.

Marie married her love, Johnny Lee Custer on December 10, 1960 in Waco, Tx. She is survived by her children, Rodney Custer and wife, Stacey; Terry Custer and wife Kayla; Bradley Custer and Robin Ivestor; 12 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Also survived by brother, Ronald Stephens, Sr, wife, Deborah, and sister-in-law, Grace Stephens. As well as, many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by parents Henry and Mattie Stephens, husband, Johnny Custer, brothers, H.C. ”Bud”, W.C. “Dub”, Roy, Coy, A.D. “Abby” and Darrell Stephens. Sisters Eva Allen, Oma Fay Carrigan, Geraldine Brewer and daughter-in-law, Lisa Custer.

God called Marie to be a part of the “Lord’s Army” at the age of 14. She loved to share the many amazing miracles and testimonies that she experienced throughout her life. A romantic at heart, she loved to read, sew beautiful quilts, bake and cook for family and friends.

Her most joyful times were talking and listening to everyone she met and she never met a stranger. Her Godly heart was large enough to hold you all.

Gladys was such a wonderful person. She and I went to school together from 1st grade on. She will be greatly missed. May the God of all comfort give you His peace.

My mother was at the same nursing home and Gladys became a very special friend. My mother passed away in March and with virus no one was allowed to see anyone. I used to go by window each time I would visit mother. When I got to nursing and and left I would wave bye to Gladys through her window. Just recently I went by and went to her window and we talked. I loved her dearly but know she is with Jesus now and that has ways been our goal on this earth. Gladys was a precious blessing to me. Rest easy now. You will be missed.

Galaxy's was a very sweet lady.My mother and father-in-law was in Senior Care and I would see Gladys as soon as I walked in always a smile on her face she will be missed by so many. But she is with the Angels now.

Ms Gladys I will miss you so much. I only knew you for a brief time at Senior Care, but I loved walking in the door only to see your beautiful smile across the room. You are a beautiful soul and I know you are with our Lord and savior !

To the Family,
My deepest sympathy for the loss of you loved one, Mrs. Gladys. She was across the hall from my Mom, and I must say she was a beauty to see each time I saw her. Her beauty was inside and out as she greeted me and my Mom with God's love. She was a true believer of the Lord, and wasn't shame to share His word or offer up a prayer. She will truly be missed, but the angels in heaven are much happier these days with her presence. Again my condolences for you loss.
God bless,
Carla Brooks
