Anne Batson passed away May 21, 2020, in Shreveport, Louisiana. Anne was born in Moultrie, Georgia on October 9, 1956, and raised in Wiggins, Mississippi. She graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi and had a career in laboratory science. She lived in many places during her life, but she raised her family in Vicksburg.

She is survived by her two sons, Benjamin Batson and Cullen Stewart; daughters-in-law, Cara Gouldey and Ariel Stewart; four grandchildren, Stella and Ramona and Caleb and Colin; two sisters, Suellen Batson Morrison and Sally Batson Weller; and many loved nieces and nephews.
