Ann Bolton
July 1, 1944  -  September 9, 2017


Ann Schmidt Bolton passed away at age 73 on September 9, 2017.

Always a free spirit, Ann is now in the clouds with the birds she so loved in life.

From wearing multicolored shoes to church as a teenager to working the night shift at a hospital in Dodge City, Kansas, she was always uniquely her.

Her great love for children brought her to work for Kinder Care/Kidís Care in 1987, a job she held until health issues forced her to retire in 2005.

She seemed to raise a good part of the kids in West Memphis in the nursery.

A voracious reader, she loved romance novels and possibly read every one ever written (or those worth reading).

She also dearly loved flowers and plants. She tended a beautiful garden and kept one indoor plant alive for going on 40 years.

Ann is survived by her brother, friend and caretaker Manford Schmidt of the home, sisters Berdena Stephens of Wichita, Kansas, and Mary Koehn of Scooba, Mississippi, and brothers Vernon Schmidt of Mulberry, Arkansas, and Wilford Schmidt of Cimarron, Kansas; a son, Jason and daughter-in-law, Elsie Bolton of West Memphis and a daughter, Brenda Be of Quincy, Massachusetts.

She is preceded in death by her dear mother Dessie Kehn Schmidt, her brother Clayton Schmidt and a sister, Margie Schmidt.

She has three grandchildren, Alden Be of Quincy, Massachusetts, and Abby and Marie Bolton of West Memphis. Her granddaughters were a light in her life.

No one can know such a free spirit truly, but those that did, knew her as a kind, devoted mother and grandmother who gave so much of herself for others.

She will be deeply missed by family and friends that loved her.
