Anna Laverne Stickrod, 78, of Amarillo, Texas, passed away September 18, 2021.
Interment will be Friday, September 24th at 2:00, at the Claude Cemetery.
Anna was born in Amarillo on August 11, 1943. Anna graduated from Amarillo High School and completed educational programs in business school, Amarillo College and West Texas A&M University. She retired from Pantex where she worked as a Technical Editor.
Anna was optimistic and always ready to share a smile, a song, a story or a poem. She had an abundance of faith which she shared openly and often. She was ready for prayer when anyone needed it. She always had time for a chat or a cheer you up session.
Anna shared her love of life and art through her artwork and prolific writing, which was printed in many publications. She was Women’s Editor for The Christian Times, a local paper. She even published a book of her stories and poems to uplift and inspire others,“Friday’s Rainbow.”
Anna loved rainbows and never missed an opportunity to appreciate a good sunset or a good joke, the cornier, the better. She loved nature, bird watching, and loved people without bias.
She is now with Jesus, walking the streets of glory, alongside her father and mother, Arthur and Sue DeHart, and her brothers, Richard and Robert.
Anna is survived by her children, one daughter, Laurie; three sons, David and his wife, Christene, Tom and his wife, Michelle, and Kirk; four grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
