Annie Tubbs

May 22, 1929 — April 23, 2018

Sister Annie Bell Davis Tubbs was born May 22, 1929 to the late Mae Bell and Barnes Davis in El Dorado, AR.  She accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Shady Grove Baptist Church where she served as the Church Mother and the Usher President.  She was faithful to her church.

She was a beloved wife, mom, grandmother and sister.  Along with her husband, they raised their children to know God and “with the help of God” they did well.  She was one of the BEST COOKS and oh my goodness, her biscuits were the best.  She loved to fish, garden and was the sweetest mother-in-law.

Sis. Tubbs was married to Mr. Wilbert Tubbs, Sr., and they were the proud parents of twelve children.  She is preceded in death by her husband Wilbert Tubbs, Sr.; one son, Kennedy Tubbs; two grandchildren, Howard Buggs and Lonnie Phillips, Jr., and two sisters, Mae Lou Davis and Thelma Sue Davis.

She leaves to cherish her precious memories five daughters; Essie Phillips, Luevada Tubbs, Annie White, Essie Marie Tubbs and Sarah Reed (Eugene); six sons, Wilbert Tubbs, Jr. (Dianne), Levell Tubbs (Regina), Lonnie Tubbs, Dennis Tubbs, Timothy Tubbs, and Roger Tubbs (Laura); and one brother, Oscar Davis.

She also leaves four grandchildren she raised as her own; LaSonya, Roxann, Lynn III, and Anthony as total of 45 grandchildren, 119 great grandchildren, 48 great-great grandchildren, a total of 212 grand- children, along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. Granny will surely be missed!!!!!!

Her grandchildren will serve as honorary pallbearers. The active pallbearers will be Mon Mitchell, Brandon Allen, Dennis Norful, Marquis Evans, Antario Smith, Romondo Bradley and Derek Revels.
