Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Ann Marie Lawrence, age 51

Ann Marie Lawrence, 51 (younger if you could ask her) , gained her heavenly wings (and will always be watching) Tuesday, March 21, 2023.  She was born August 17, 1971 to Patricia (Stevens) Warner and Jesse Price, JR. in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She married Joseph Bradley Lawrence in 1996 and together they had three children, Bayle Marie, Leah Jo, and Joseph Dalton.  She was blessed in life with two wonderful grandchildren and one on the way.

Ann had an unconditional love for Jesus, her husband, her children, her grandchildren (present and future), her family, her friends.  Ann had a servant’s heart.  She had many certifications in education that allowed her many opportunities to work with children (her passion).  She served God with many churches and in multiple positions over the years because of her dedication and love for Christ.

Her family will always remember Ann for the light that shined brightly from within her soul, the joy she spread no matter what the situation was. Even in the difficult times Ann was always a source of comfort, peace, and wisdom. She could make the darkest hour brighter with just her presence. She will be forever remembered and deeply missed by all.

Ann loved many things outdoors, camping, helping others, family time, her work, sunflowers, the color purple, and many more, but she would say being at the beach with her family was her favorite get away.  To know Ann was to know God’s love.

Ann left her earthly home for her heavenly mansion and is survived by her husband, Brad, Daughters, Bayle (Chris), Leah Jo, Son Dalton (Alyssa), Grandkids, Colton, Oliver Jo (Ollie), and Baby Penn arriving soon, and Mom, Dad, 2 Brothers, 1 Sister, 4 Nieces, 1 Nephew, and lots of extended family, friends, and coworkers.

In lieu of flowers, monetary donations are greatly appreciated and will be used for final expenses. Monetary donations, cards, special memories, and notes can be mailed to The Connection Church, c/o Bayle and Chris Penn RE: Ann Lawrence, 14322 HWY 107 Gravel Ridge, AR 72076.

The Celebration of Ann Lawrence’s beautiful life will be April 8, 2023 at 11am at The Connection Church, 14322 HWY 107, Gravel Ridge, AR 72076 (501-835-2644) where Ann was member. Lunch will be provided by the Connection Church following the service for those that would like to stay.

Thank you from the family to any and all that has supported us during this difficult time.

    Ann Marie I love you so freaking much and I miss you so so very much. I don’t understand and question “why” even tho I know better than to question God’s path. I know u r without pain and sorrow now, and I saw ur struggles that most never got to see, I know where u r because I know ur heart and that it was always filled with God’s grace/love. If u get a chance check in on us from time to time cause little C and I are going to struggle do this on our own so please check in when u can. See u soon my one and only “AnnaBannana” and we will always love u and we will always be on the lookout for “AlienAnnie” too,
