Anna Lou Abshire was born on July 5, 1926. Her father called her his “Little Firecracker” and she lived up to her name. She passed on to heaven to be with her family and friends on September 14, 2021. She spent 95 years spreading her sparkle.
She was most happy doing volunteer work including the Bares Center in Erath, LA, St. Vincent’s Hospital in Little Rock, AR, McAuley Senior Center in Hot Springs Village, AR, and Jackson House in Hot Springs, AR. Mother loved flowers and working in her gardens.
Mother was involved in American Business Women’s Association, American Legion Auxiliary, Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, and Day Lily Society in Abbeville, LA; Little Rock, AR and in Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village, AR. She served as an officer in the organizations over the years.
Mother was predeceased by her father and mother Odea Abshire, Sr. and Olita Hanks Abshire and her sisters Mary Lou Falcon of Abbeville, La. and Agnes Viator of Baton Rouge, LA., her brothers Odea Jr, Bernard (Ben), Lloyd, Eugene, Richard, Jimmie, Richard of Abbeville, LA and Roger (Poncho) of Denham Springs, LA and Nolan of New Orleans, LA.

Mother was a member of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Hot Springs Village. She missed going to church, her friends and the many church activities. Mother was able to live in her own home in Hot Springs Village until March of 2020 when due to the Covid pandemic, she moved to North Little Rock with her daughter. She was fortunately able to live with little assistance until the final month of her life. Her final day was blessed with her granddaughter and great granddaughter visiting in Briarwood Rehab Center. They laughed, ate cookies and looked at old pictures with her, but she had also had her hair done that day. What a great day for her, she slept and peacefully passed while she slept.
