Ann Browning Ashcraft, whose smile made everyone’s day brighter and whose laugh filled the air with joy, died April 15, 2018 in Richmond, Va., at the age of 68.
She was born in Neosho, to Galen and Leila Jo Browning. A woman of remarkable accomplishment and impact in the many walks of her life, her greatest service was to family and to those that they served - in churches where her husband was called to minister, as a loving mother and then grandmother and as a proud beacon of achievement to her Browning roots.
Ann is survived by her loving husband of 46 years, Randall Ashcraft of Richmond; son Graham Ashcraft and his wife, Amanda,  New York City; and treasured grandchildren, Zane, Levi and Skyler, her brother Mark Browning and step brother Dale Mitchell, Joplin, and her sister Cathy Browning, Neosho.
A celebration of her life will be held at 4 p.m.,  Friday, May 4, 2018, at First Baptist Church of Richmond.
