A sincere thank you to the Richardson family for sharing their sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, cousin and aunt with me and my family for the last 38 years. Annie played a role in my upbringing unlike any other - she was a friend, a parent, a confidant, and a teacher wrapped all in one. She was there nearly every step of the way and it’s hard to think of a childhood memory that doesn’t involve Annie. She will forever occupy a space in my heart and while I am sad that she is gone, I am so grateful for the memories and time together. Rest in peace, Annie. I love you.
Love,
Drew

Annie was such a beautiful and caring woman and I was privileged to meet Annie through the Lipshutz family since my son David and Drew were best of friends.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of Annie’s family and with her second family, Cheryl, Jim, Drew, Scott and Lisa at this very sad time. May your wonderful memories of Annie bring you comfort.
Fondly, Paula Stein

Hey Girl! (what I would always say when we see each other)This is your baby girl Ella,

I am so excited that prior to your first surgery we had a love time together. You and I had time to say how much we loved one another and that love I will always cherish deep in my heart. You told me so much to do like you were not coming back. I have been checking my list to make sure everything was done.
I member walking in your room late the Saturday night (prior to your passing) Praying for you as I did everyday I visited you and telling you (as you told me to) to go on with the Lord. Momma, that was the hardest thing for me to do. I had to remember that you was only here for a season. We had the best road trips, the best time in Madisonville on the wagon ride. Going to the country every other weekend. me putting together your birthday dinners as we celebrated earlier the day you had your stroke. Just so much fun. I will always have those memories in my heart. I will miss you so!

Good evening for now my Love, Good evening

To, My Girl, Heaven has gained one of the loves of my life. I will miss you so much grandma. You know how much I loved you and everyday when I got off from work I had to come by to check on you and get my big hug and a big kiss from you. We had a bond that no one but God could break. I know you are in a much better place. The video you and I had taken prior to you getting ill, I will play all day everyday just to hear your voice. Fly High my baby until we meet again.

Love you So much! Michael (Mike Mike)

I am so saddened to hear of Annie's passing but know that she has moved on to a better place. She was with our family for 30+ years and helped raise me into the person I've become. She had a kind, generous, and gentle heart and I'll continue to cherish the many fond memories of all the laughs we shared together over the years.

It meant so much to me that her and Edith were able to come to my wedding and meet my daughter - so that she could see how all of her hard work over the years paid off.

She will be missed, but never forgotten, and will always be a part of the Lipshutz family. My love and condolences to the entire Richardson family.

Annie was my second mom. She truly helped raise my brothers and me and was such an instrumental part of my childhood and creating who I am today. Everyone knew and loved Annie - she knew all of my friends, friends' parents, teachers, galore. We love her so much and she will be so missed. Truly one of the greats.
