Obituary for Carol Drew Abston

How wonderfully appointed by God that Momma, Mimi, Carol Drew Abston, entered Glory early Sunday morning October 20, 2019. Born August 26, 1931. A woman of beauty and grace, love, laughter and life, creativity and greatly blessed with a voice to sing praises to the Lord. She served the Lord, her family and many churches across the United States of America, Europe and Israel. Her Creek Indian heritage gave her a determination, often thought to be stubbornness, “to fix it”, no matter what. She had a magical ability to create something out of nothing. She could turn paper grocery bags into 100 plus animal costumes for Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde. As well as make every bride she ever worked with feel like the most beautiful bride to ever walk down an aisle. But her husband, the late Joseph R. Abston, and 4 wonderful children, Susan Abston, Smith, husband Alvin, Sandra Abston Ballew, Sharon Abston, Pfeffer, husband Kevin, Michael Abston, wife Penny were her joy. She was a true picture of a Proverbs 31 woman who loved and devoted herself to her family. She has left a priceless legacy for her grandchildren, Ashley Robert Ballew, wife Lena, Christopher Ballew, Nicolas Ballew, wife Tina, Sharmin Abston, Michael Abston ll, Richard Abston, Parker Pfeffer, Suzanne Smith, Rebecca Smith. As well as her great grandchildren, Ashten and Liam Ballew, Juliana and Nick Ballew, Jaxson Abston, Jacob Cupstid and her many nieces and nephews. She is survived by her sister Mary Alice McFalls, husband Harvey and the wives of her brothers, Margie Drew and Barbara Drew. Because of God’s great faithfulness, all is well. On Tuesday October 29, 2019, the family will receive visitors from 10 am until the beginning of the service at 12 pm at Oak Forest Baptist Church, 1700 W. 43rd St. Houston TX 77018 with interment to follow at Forest Park East.

Memorial donations may be made in the name of “Carol Abston” to The Celebrant Singers, Visalia , California, and Samaritan’s Purse.

Words are not adequate to describe my deep love, affection, admiration, and appreciation for dear Carol. She, her late husband, Joseph, and her entire family are among the dearest and sweetest friends I've ever had the privilege of knowing and being close to in this life. Carol was forever elegant and so loving...a beautiful example of a truly Godly, Spirit-filled woman (lady), who was a ray of sunshine and an incredible blessing to everyone she encountered. What a life so well-lived! The contribution you made to my life, personally, that of my entire family, and the ministry of CELEBRANT SINGERS, is incalculable, and forever-cherished. You are now in glory, dear the presence of Jesus whom you loved so deeply and served so faithfully all of your have now your "crown of life", the joy of being reunited with dear Joseph and others. You're now, where we one day long to be. You have heard those totally-deserved words, "Well done thy good and faithful servant! Enter into your reward!" We who remain are poorer in your absence, and heaven in infinitely sweeter...May we, by God's amazing grace, follow in your beautiful footsteps, and may Jesus also find us faithful as you truly always were. To the family and friends, may we all find comfort and consolation in the promises and grace of our faithful and amazing Savior. He is our peace...
With prayers, all love, and deep affection -

Beautiful angel has flown to heaven. To the family, my deepest sympathy and condolences over the loss of sweet Mimi Carol. I have so many memories of her, she was always there for me and my family. I still have every letter, card, prayer card and note that she wrote to me when my brothers died and when my son was in the hospital. Her kindness had no limits. When my son was in the hospital in ICU for 10 days she came up and saw him every day with prayer cards from her church group. To know her was a gift, and you definitely knew she had her eye on shenanigans at all times. I know the family will miss her every day, but I know her legacy and stories will outlive all of us. Blessed to know her, and love her. I know Mimi loved me because it was the first and last thing she said every time I saw her. That and "are you being good?". Yes Mimi, I am. And I will miss you. But rest assured I am keeping a close eye on Sharon when your busy with everyone else. Love you~Candy

Heaven is richer, if that is even possible, with Carol there. I am sure she is thrilled to be with Joseph and others who have gone before her. She is receiving her reward and it is a great one.
My fondest memory of Carol is when she taught my girls the "thumbkin song" while she had then sitting in her lap. She would sing so sweetly and they were enthralled. As I am a grandmother now myself I think of those days and want to be just like her!
May the Comforter do what He does best in holding the rest of family who grieve here on earth.
You are loved.
