Anna Ruth Beard

Springdale, AR, 1937 - 2022

Anna Ruth Beard, a resident of Springdale, Ark., took her place in Heaven on Thursday, September 6, at the age of 84. Her daughters Pam and Vicki were by her side.
She was born to Elliott Oliver and Rosa Ann Logue in Drakes Creek, Madison County, Ark., and married Derrel Beard on May 16, 1956. Theirs was the truest form of love.
Anna Ruth, lovingly known as Mammaw, was a fantastic cook, painter, quilt maker, and more. The quilts she made for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will grace their homes for generations to come. Each stitch is a reminder of her unfailing love.
Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, Elliott Oliver and Rosa Ann Logue; husband, Derrel; and siblings, Ray, Jay, Clifford, Kenneth, and Dewey.
Her children survive her: Pam Ridley (Robert), Vicki Austin (Jon), her son Michael; and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She spoke to Jesus in anticipation and excitement to be in his loving arms and reunited with the love of her life, Derrel, and her baby, Larry Kevin. Though saddened by this immense loss, we look forward to the day we are together again.
Graveside service: 11 a.m. Saturday, September 10th, 2022, Spring Creek Cemetery 8762 E Wagon Wheel Rd., Springdale, Ark. 72762. Online condolences
