Gaskill and husband Stephen, all of Pungoteague; brother, Johnny Jones and wife Marilyn and brother-in-law, Paige “Rose-Bud” Custis, all of Onley, VA; grandchildren, Talia Taylor and husband Bobby, Tony Custis and wife Jill, and Amber Custis; great-grandchildren, Ellen Grace, Bates, and Bailey Taylor; step grandchildren, Chris, Jason, and Ryan Bonniwell; step great-grandchildren, Hannah and Lillian Buchanan; and several nieces and nephews. 

To honor Mrs. Custis’s wishes, the family will gather for a private graveside service at the Onancock Cemetery.
