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.
