Edwina Theresa Adams

August 28, 1952 - November 28, 2021

Edwina Theresa (Kruse) Adams, age 69, of Celina, Texas, passed away on Sunday, November 28, 2021. She was born on August 28, 1952, in Chicago, Illinois, to Leona (Andereggen) and Robert Kruse. Edwina graduated from Gage Park High School in Chicago in 1969 and soon married Mark Thomas Adams there on April 15, 1972, and they were blessed with two children.

Edwina was a caring, loving mother, wife and nana. She worked hard every day to help support her family and she ran her own daycare for several years in her home in Canoga Park, California, and later became the head cashier at Auto Stiegler Mercedes Benz where she worked alongside her husband Mark and daughter Patricia. At the age of 45 she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and she worked until the age of 49.  Even with her disabilities, she still did everything possible to help take care of her family. 

She loved going to Las Vegas and playing slot machines at the casinos, watching baseball, baking, and loved her precious grandchildren. Edwina was loved while she was here with us on earth and will continue to be loved through time and all eternity. Edwina will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.

Edwina is survived by her son, Mark Adams II; her daughter, Patricia Lynn Lewis and her husband, Brien; her granddaughters, Samantha and Ava Adams; her sisters, Mary Grochowski and Carol Douglas; and her brother, Robert Kruse.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Mark Adams.

A graveside service will be held at Ridgeview West Memorial Park, 7800 Sanctuary Drive, Frisco, Texas, on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Father Tony O’Donovan.

Rest in peace Edwina, your kind heart and beautiful smile will be remembered always. And the Red Hot Sevens , I always think of you when I am in Laughlin. Tricia, it may have been years since I have seen any of you, but I think of you all fondly and often. Hugs to you and your families at this most difficult time. ANJIE ENGEL, December 9, 2021 Mom, I’m going to miss you so much! I will always remember the way you raised me, loved me and all that you did for me growing up. You always made sure I had enough but most of all taught me the importance of hard work, caring for others, morals and being organized and clean (haha). The last few years of your life when I was taking care of you and visiting you may have been stressful but if I had to do it again I would because it brought joy and pride in my life that I could take care of my mommy. Thank you for being a great Nana to Samantha and Ava. I know you wish to have been able to do more with them and so do they but they understood. The girls LOVE you so much and will miss you. The Smile on your face when I brought the girls to visit you I will never forget. I'm so Thankful that Tricia, Brien, Samantha, Ava and I got to spend one last Thanksgiving together. You may have left us here on earth but you're now reunited with Dad, your parents and many other family members in a much more beautiful place . Please watch over my girls and I, and continue to shower us with your love from above. One last request from above.......Please watch over your Chicago Bears & Cubbies (Hate to say it but White Sox too for other family members) so we can win some championships again! We love you and will never forget you! Mark (AKA: Markie/Cocoa), Samantha & Ava

Mom, I know we are suppose to celebrate the life you had instead of mourn. But it is very hard to do that. You were always a great mom to Mark and I. You and Dad both were. You always did everything you could to make a good life for us no matter what the situation. Thank you for teaching me manners, respect and love. Thank you for teaching me how to cook and especially to bake. You will forever be in my heart. I love you and miss you so much already. Love Your Daughter, Trishy
