Jewel Anna Belle Johnston

Jewel Anna Belle Johnston, 84 of Hazen, Arkansas went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 7, 2023 surrounded by family. She was the oldest of nine children born to Carl A. and Robbie A. (King) Hill on August 6, 1938. She was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Frances Clark, Mary Morris and Leota Jenkins and one son, Billy C. Anderson, Jr. She left to cherish her memory her son, Carl Ace (Sandra) Anderson of Hazen; seven grandchildren, Everett Gorden Anderson, Joshua M. (Calyn) Anderson, Courtney R. (Dayne) Yanai, Gina (Jon) Freeman, Stephanie M. (Taylor) Romero, Hannah A. Anderson and Karla A. Anderson; five great-grandchildren; two sisters, Sylvia Anderson and Birdie (Doug) Grimmett; three brothers, Arnold (Carol Sue) Hill, John Hill, and Billy (Dee) Hill.

Anna retired from Motorola Company in Chicago, Illinois in 1998.  Also, she taught line dancing which made her happy. In 1999, she moved to Hazen, Arkansas to be closer to her family.  She had a deep love for all of her family and enjoyed spending time with them, but her greatest passion was her love for God.  She told anyone that would listen, and even some that didn’t, how God sent his only son, Jesus to die on the cross for all our sins.  She always invited people to go to church and loved singing and  listening to gospel music.  Ann was a member of Morris Chapel Baptist Church, Des Arc, Arkansas where she attended faithfully until her health kept her home bound.

By her request, Ann’s body was donated to science. A memorial service will be held in the near future (date and time to be determined later) at Walter’s Chapel Church, Carlisle, Arkansas with Bro. Greg Tenison officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimers Association or an organization of your choice.

    I remember happy times with my cousin, Anna Belle, as we were growing up. She made it a point to come see me when I made it back to visit in Hazen. She was a loving and lovely person.

  3. Aunt Ann was a Wonderful Aunt. I remember when I was about 13 years old that she took the time to program my old Texas Instruments computer. She was able to create a flower on the screen. Aunt Ann always took time to talk with me. She told me so many stories about the old days. The Lord reunited Aunt Ann with some many Andersons & Hills.

  4. Aunt Ann thank you for all the beautiful memories you have created for me! Thank you for always taking me to church every chance you had! I will forever cherish our beautiful memories! May you Rest In Peace sweetheart! I love you forever and always!

    Prayers & condolences for the family. I remember Anna Belle from my teenage & young adult years. My mama & her were friends for awhile but their lives went in separate directions. RIP Anna Belle.

  6. Annie will always be special in my life. We taught Line Dancing together and it was fun. My prayers to the family.
