Obituary for Edwadine Kay Forbau (Forbau)

My beloved Mother, Edwadine Kay Forbau was born in Higgins, Texas to Edward and Lena Forbau on July 30, 1950. She transitioned to her spiritual form on Friday November 29, 2019, in her home suddenly.

She was a homemaker and a devoted caretaker to her eldest daughter for 32 years after she was seriously injured in an accident at 14 years old. She was an avid reader with a great appreciation for nature which included long walks, landscaping her yard, cherishing her pets and sunbathing. She loved her home, her privacy, and her BBC historical docudramas and miniseries. She was the most sincere friend to me and beloved Mother. She said what she meant and meant what she said, it was always backed up by her actions and she expected the very same from you. She will be remembered with every beat of my heart.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Amy Miller, her brothers Gordon and Terry Forbau, and her sister Janice Townsend.

She is survived by her two daughters, Shannon Osburn and Alecia Miller, her two sisters LaDonna Morrow and JaNelle Sutton, a brother Darrel Forbau, three granddaughters; Sascha, Savannah Whitehead and Sydney Carly, and a grandson, Mason Fowler.

She will be cremated on Thursday December 5, 2019 at 10: 00 am and we will plant her ashes and the ashes of her daughter together with a tree for a living memorial to honor her in Spring. We will have a wake planned to celebrate her life when we plant the tree. Time / Date to be announced.
