Constance Ann Potts Stillion
April 19, 1925 ‒ October 18, 2019
LEXINGTON: Ann Stillion kept her eyes above. Despite her humble early years and the unfortunate path of her childhood, she kept Christ as her Rock. She applied God’s grace to her life and her friendships: Good friends care for each other, close friends understand each other, but true friends stay forever, beyond words, distance and time. Ann Stillion was a True Friend.
Ann Stillion passed into the Lord’s care Friday evening October 18, 2019 from Winchester Terrace. She was 94.
Born Constance Ann Thorpe April 19, 1925 in Marysville to Pearl H. and Ruth M. (Mitchell) Thorpe, she was graduated from Marysville High School.
She worked in Mansfield’s Leland Hotel (once dancing with Laurel & Hardy), The Mansfield Tire, and T&A Saveway.
She devoted her life to her family and her circle of friends, caring for others, calling on them, sending cards, actively loving on her family – and looked forward to annual trips to Myrtle Beach. She attended Berean Baptist Church and enjoyed reading mysteries, romances and inspirational books.
