On October 23, 2010, God took the kind and loving soul of Ludie Joy Shinn Anthes to Heaven. Ludie was born May 26, 1923 in Magnolia, AR.

She was a business woman and homemaker. For 45 years, she and her husband Paul owned and operated hotels in Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas. The focus of her life was on God and family, and she served both as faithfully as any human possibly could. In 1966, she was a founding member of Harlan Park Baptist Church, where she taught the Rebecca Sunday School for 35 years.

Mrs. Anthes was preceded to Heaven by her husband of 66 years, Paul; parents Isaac and Henrietta (Clary) Shinn; and four brothers and one sister. She is survived by sons Eddie and wife Rhonda of Conway and David and wife Gail of Russellville; grandchildren Jason, Yanci, Carter, Michelle, Aimee`, Jon, Brandon, and Tyler; and two great grandchildren.

The love and support she gave her children and grandchildren were unwavering and without question. Thank you for all you did for us. We love you and will miss you so.
