Annie Clyde Lowry Bryant, age 91, was born into the farming family of Callie Ingram and Arthur Ellis (Jack) Lowry on October 17, 1925 at Lorena, Texas and passed away due to complications from a stroke on May 8, 2017. One of mom's earliest memories was joining her father and older sister and brother in the cotton fields around Lorena at the age of 4. While this may seem harsh by today's standards, the only tears came when she didn't get to work a row adjacent to her daddy. Mom was never a stranger to hard work.

Ann graduated from Lorena High School in 1943. She moved to Waco, Texas and eventually took a job at Safeway Food Stores. There, she met the love of her life, Lester Boyd Bryant, and married him on October 3, 1948. This marriage was blessed with two children, Deborah Kay Bryant and Gary Allen Bryant, both of Austin, Texas.

Ann will be remembered for being a loving wife and mother of her children and for being a wonderful grandmother. Mom ran a tight and orderly ship around the house and had numerous part time jobs through the years. While dad was in-charge at his job away from home, mom was in-charge of everything else at home. An excellent cook, Ann was especially well known for her pies. She was also very active in the women's groups at the church.

Ann was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years Lester, her parents Jack and Callie Lowry, sisters Allie Brown, Murriel Dixon and Lillie Sandel and by brothers Jack, Lonnie and Arthur Lowry. Ann is survived by daughter Debbie, son Gary, daughter-in-law Joy, grandchildren Bailey and Chancellor Bryant, her sister Mildred Dooley of Waco, Texas and by many nieces and nephews.

Services will be held on Monday, May 15 at 10:00am at Memorial United Methodist Church, 6100 Berkman Drive, Austin, Texas 78723.

Though you can't see me or touch me, I will be near. And if you listen with your heart, you will hear all my love around you soft and clear.

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always there. Still loved, still missed, because we care.
