Obituary

Edna (Polly) Tillman Casto Qualls, April 12, 1918 - May 2, 2018. A Life Well Lived. Went home to be with her Heavenly Father May 2, 2018. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife, friend, and fine Christian lady. Always ready to offer a friendly smile, a quick wit, and a funny comeback. She grew up in East Nashville, attended East High School, and loved to talk about the days of walking in Shelby Park with her sisters and friends. She was a longtime member of Edgefield Baptist Church, a Sunday School teacher for the Martha class, and a true Christian lady who loved the Lord and never waivered in her faith. “Casto” worked for Becker’s Bakery in Donelson for over 40 years. She loved to decorate beautiful cakes of all types and for any occasion. Our family was never without wonderful cakes, pies, rolls, and cookies! She is preceded in death by her parents, Tinsley (Bud) and Fannie Neal Tillman; husband, Ira K. Casto; husband, James Grady Qualls; 5 brothers and sisters, T.G. (Tinsley), Edward, Rebecca, Eula, and Russell. Among those who will miss her are her children, Kenneth (Sandy) Casto, Sandra Casto Barry; grandchildren, Angela (Mike) Abell, Diane (Jeff) White, and Tracy (Josh) Woodward; great-grandchildren, Kenneth Abell, Ashley White, and Jacob Woodward. The family is thankful for the wonderful residents, staff, and caregivers of Lakeshore Heartland for their care and companionship over the past 4 years.
