Ann Reeves Harvey, 81, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, August 11, 2023.
Ann (81) was born on October 1st, 1941, in Tangipahoa, Louisiana, the only child of Katie May Holliday and Willie Chester Reeves.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a grandson, Nikolas Lane Smith.

Known as Mom, Granny, and Miss Ann, by those she loved most, Ann was raised on a dairy farm in Kentwood, Louisiana, and would grow up surrounded by a loving extended family that worked hard and loved hard. That shaped the life she would live as her own, extended, and blended family grew around her in love and faith. Although slight in stature, she was a giant in her love for her family, and her love for Jesus.

In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for donations to be made to the Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area.
