May 9, 1937 –June 21, 2019
Anna Marie Patrick, 82, of Coushatta, went to be with the Lord Friday, June 21, 2019, at Green Meadow Haven Nursing Home. Mrs. Patrick was born May 9, 1937, in New Boston, Ohio, to the late Orace and Lenna Mae Cramer.
She was one of three siblings, two of which preceded her in death. Ann spent her younger years working alongside her then husband, Carl, at the business they owned in Wheelersburg and raising their son, Tony. In 1977, Ann and Tony moved to Louisiana and she began working for Texas State Optical as an Optician where she remained employed until her retirement.
Later in life, Ann reconnected with her high school sweetheart, Arthur Patrick. She then returned to Wheelersburg where they were married. After Art’s passing, she remained in Ohio for a few years before she returned to Louisiana to be near her most prized possession, her only child, Tony. Ann loved the Lord and could always be found listening to her gospel music. Even in her last days, her son and music was her comfort.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur Patrick; parents, Orace and Lenna Mae Cramer; sister, Delores “Sis” Yates; brother, Les Cramer; and two nephews, Tony Yates and Mike Cramer, as well as her first husband, Carl “CB” Baldridge.
Ann is survived by one son, Tony Baldridge and wife Lori of Fairview Alpha; one step-daughter, Mary Cummings and husband, Daniel of Maryville, Tenn.; six grandchildren, T’Shanda, Erik and fiancée Jennifer, Jakeb, Layton, Tanya and husband Michael, and Kristin; six great-grandchildren, Alex, Breyanah, Braxston, Haley, Luke and Faith; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. She is also survived by a special friend, Shady Bays.
There will be a memorial service at a later date at Sunset Gardens Memorial Cemetery in Franklin Furnace, Ohio, where she wished to be returned and placed with her beloved husband, Art.
