Edith Asare

March 18, 1968 - July 11, 2021

And our Jesus Christ Himself stated: I am the Resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me though he may die, Yet shall live -  John 11: 25

Today we mourn the sudden loss of our beloved daughter, mother, sister, auntie, wife, niece, cousin, friend, and colleague which occurred on Sunday, July 11th, 2021.

Edith Quist Asare affectionately called Ara Eddie by close families and friends.  She was born in Accra - Ghana on March 18, 1968 to Peter Carl Quist and Josephine Annang Quist of Osu. She was fourth among five siblings.

Edith had her baptism and confirmation at the Ebenezer Presbytarian Church of Ghana, Osu in 1976.

Edith started her early education at the Association International, Airport.  She continued her secondary education at the Accra Girls Secondary School and obtained her O'level/A'level in 1987.

In 1992, Edith relocated to the United State and furthered her education in Nursing at TC Williams Nursing School in Alexandria, Virginia and completed in 2000.  She worked at INOVA Fairfax Hospital, Burke Healthcare Center, Manassas Nursing home VA, Heritage Manor and Village of Lake Highlands (Texas) for 23 years.  Her Honesty, diligence and dedication to duty was exceptional and won the admiration of her superiors, subordinates and patients.

Edith was a devoted Christian who became a member of the Faith And Victory Chapel in Virginia. Her love for God and passion for soul winning turned this small community church into a mega church full of her loved ones.

She got married to Fredrick Asare in 2001 and relocated to Dallas Texas.  They were blessed with two children, Emmanuel and Elianna and also raised Andrew and Candice.  In 2006, Edith became a co-minister with the husband at the Springs Of Joy Ministry in Dallas Texas, a Ministry they founded together.

The demise of our beloved Sister Edith has created a big vacuum in the family but we take solace in the word of God in Revelation 14:13.  “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them” (KJV)

Edith, May your soul rest in perfect peace
