Obituary for Abbi Jenean Annis

Heaven gained another angel on September 23, 2017. Abbi Annis, our precious, beautiful mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend, went to live with Jesus for eternity.

Abbi would have celebrated her 34th birthday Thursday, September 28th. It was her hugs, her smile, her silly texts, her love for children and family, her love for people, and life in general, that made Abbi so special to us all. She always felt she was so blessed, but in reality, we were the ones blessed to have Abbi in our lives.

Abbi was born September 28, 1983, in Monroe, La. to Paul & Kimberly Pardue Albritton. She attended A.L. Smith Elementary School in Sterlington, La. And in 1995, Abbi’s family moved to Iowa. Abbi graduated from Carlisle High School in 2001, attended Grandview College in Des Moines, and the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. Abbi recently graduated from Hawkeye College in Waterloo with a 3.98 GPA, and was currently taking additional courses at the University of Northern Iowa.

Abbi married ‘the love of her life’, Jamie E. Annis, on November 2, 2012, a year after Jamie proposed to her in Central Park, New York City. To this marriage, Abbi brought a family of three, that soon was blessed with three more, making her the proud “Mama of HAWKMC”! (Hayden, Allyson, Willow, Kinnick, Madison and Carson). Abbi loved being a “stay at home” mom and making crafts with her children. Her Godly gifts included being the family’s cheerleader and caretaker. Some of her “favorites” included: daisies, going to Starbucks, celebrating Christmas, her blanket, music, writing, organizing family get-togethers, going to the lake, shopping at Target and visiting New York City (especially Central Park).

She was the family’s biggest cheerleader and her first thoughts were always thinking of us. We can’t think of a reason good enough that God needed her more than we do, but if love could have saved her, she would have lived forever. Our blessing is knowing we will see her again.

Abbi is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather Prentice Pardue (Grandaddy) .

She is survived by her husband Jamie E. Annis and her children Madison Nolte, Allyson Nolte, Carson Nolte, Kinnick Annis, Willow Annis & Hayden Annis. Also her parents Paul & Kim Albritton of Carlisle, her brother Noel (Brandi) Albritton of Altoona, Cole Albritton of Ames, sister Bonnie (Devyn Sarrazin) Albritton of Carlisle, her maternal grandmother Joyce (V.A.) Hennen of Choudrant, La, paternal grandparents, Morris and Dixie Albritton of Sterlington, La, her in-laws N.S. “Hap” and Cammie Annis of Waterloo, brothers-in-law, N.S. “Sam” (Niki) Annis of Hudson and Justin Annis of Terrence, Ca, sisters-in-law Lindsey, Anne, and Kindal Annis of Waterloo. Numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, & cousins.
