Annie Mae Marchant, 80, of Waldron, Arkansas passed from this life on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at her home. Annie was born on April 21, 1942 to Linville and Anna (Ward) Higgins in Lakeland, Florida. Annie was 80 years old. She was raised Catholic and believed in God The Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.
Annie was loyal, dependable, an always there for family and friends with a great sense of humor. She loved doing puzzles and playing with her puppies. She played solitaire, card games, word search, and loved talking on the phone and visiting with family and friends. Annie loved the color blue, poodles, roses and fresh flowers. Lilies, orchids, and plants were some of Annie's favorites. A few of the things Annie always believed... "Never hang up the phone or leave the house without a hug and a kiss and saying I love you". She also told everyone she talked to, "drink a half cup of hot lemon water every morning before anything else".
Annie said, she wanted her flowers when she was living and not after she was dead. Her request was: Instead of flowers that she cannot enjoy, help her family in anyway possible. If you would like ideas on how to help, send an email to Millie Marchant Kozak: email@example.com.
