Ann Elizabeth Connick Stansberry entered into eternal life on Monday, November 27, 2017 at the age of 53.

Ann was the devoted wife of Lawrence Edward Stansberry III, beloved mother of Lawrence IV, Collin, Jacob and Katie. She is preceded in death by her beloved father, Paul D. Connick Sr. She is survived by her loving mother, Ann Jenniskens Connick, her siblings, Carmel (Howard), Paul (Giselle), Dutch (Jean), Edward, Cynthia (Thomas), Peter (Mary Belle), Patrick (Rhonda), twenty-four nieces and nephews and eighteen great nieces and nephews.

During her lifetime, Ann was a healer in spirit and by occupation. She worked as a nurse at West Jefferson Hospital for fifteen years, where she was admired by friends and colleagues for sitting tirelessly and compassionately at the bedside of suffering patients, holding their hands as they worked their way through pain and panic. After retiring from West Jefferson in 2000, Ann became the Director of Nursing at St. Margaret's Daughter's nursing home, in which role she accompanied New Orleans's most vulnerable populations through times of suffering and loneliness, but also through times of joy.

Ann's family would like to thank Drs. Frank Culicchia, Aaron Mammoser, Ivo Tremont, Lilibeth Rochon, Henry Friedman, and Leslie Levenson for their excellent care and attention.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 10 am to noon at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, 610 6th Street, Gretna, with mass immediately following. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: Brain Tumor Initiative: LSU Health Foundation, 2000 Tulane Avenue, 4th Floor, New Orleans, LA. 70112.
