Edith Inez Aesque , 80, Kingsport.
KINGSPORT - Edith Inez Aesque , of Kingsport, died quietly in her sleep at the Life Care Center of Gray. She was 80 years old.
Inez was born in Kingsport in 1930, where in the late 1940s she met and married her one and only true love, Charles "Fats" Aesque . She had two children in the 1950s and became a homemaker and stay-at-home mother.
Inez was admired for her calming personality and her love of music. Her hobbies included cooking, gardening, collecting antiques and sewing. In 1966, she was devastated after the passing of her beloved husband. However, she accepted the responsibility of a single parent by raising her children and starting a new career at North Electric Company in Gray.
Over the years, Inez completed her degree, made many friends, and enjoyed her three grandchildren. Her health began to decline in 2004, as she began her journey with dementia.
