Ann Veronica Ashurst
July 31, 1932 – January 15, 2020
Ann Veronica Ashurst died January 15, 2020. She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Gordon; her children, Bernadette Powers, Joseph Ashurst, Ann Marie Leonard, Mark Ashurst, Peter Ashurst and Paul Ashurst.
Ann was born July 31, 1932 in Warrington, England, to Leo and Ethel Stamp. She married Gordon Ashurst on September 5, 1953, in Warrington. In 1958, Ann and Gordon emigrated to the US, and eventually settled in Oklahoma City.
For Ann, faith and love were actions, from the raising of her children to her quiet work among the home bound and elderly.
Laughter is her legacy to us, and even in her death, she would want us to find joy in the life she lived and to laugh loudly and often, especially when family and friends are around.
Another voice has been added to the chorus of laughter this day in heaven, as Ann joins her brothers, sisters, and her mother and father around the great banquet table in heaven.
