Obituary for Annis Marie Lister

Annis Marie Lister of Atlanta, TX, went to be with the Lord on August 24, 2018, just a few days shy of her 86th birthday. A resident of Rodessa, LA, for many years, she was a 1951 graduate of Rodessa High School and a proud member of the Red Bull marching band in which she played alto saxophone.

After attending business school in Shreveport, LA, she eventually landed a bookkeeping position with Service to saw millers. She worked there for a number of years until she opted for a career change which landed her in the suburbs of St. Louis, MO. The balance of her personal and professional life was spent there, and she retired from Suburban Journals in 1993. Shortly thereafter, she purchased a home in Atlanta and moved there to enjoy the life of a retiree in her beloved Ark-La-Tex.

Annis is the daughter of the late Ethel Lister Wattis of Queen City, TX, and the late Henry Martin Lister, Sr., of Hutto, TX. Also preceding her in death are brothers Henry Martin Lister, Jr., of Houston, TX, and Joseph Willis Lister of Rockport, TX, as well as sister Pat Lister Newton, of Little Rock, AR.

Survivors include sister Faye Wattis Reynolds of Alexandria, LA; nieces Carolyn Lister Harris of Broussard, LA; Pamela Lister Roe of Fulton, TX; Joy Reynolds Guillory of Alexandria, LA; nephews Brian Newton of Little Rock, AR; Todd Newton of Rogers, AR; Josh Newton also of Little Rock; a number of great nieces and nephews; as well as three great-great nephews and four great-great nieces.
