Ann Elizabeth Sollars Craft, 58, of Nesbit, Mississippi passed away Sunday, March 13, 2022, at her home.

She was born February 18, 1964, in Washington Court House, Ohio to Frank Bowers and Janet Lewis Sollars.  She was the youngest of five children.  In 1986, she married Carter Craft and they soon after moved to West Virginia where they started their family.

She was preceded in death by her father on November 3, 2007.

Ann is survived by four sons, Miles (Ashley) Craft of Pittsburgh, PA, Frankie (Cheryl) Craft of Southaven, MS, Mason Craft of Nashville, TN, and Thomas (Kayla) Craft of Petal, MS; a grandson, Simon Craft of Pittsburgh, PA; her mother, Janet Sollars of Washington Court House, OH; four brothers, Steve (Lisa) Sollars, Brian (Mary Kay) Sollars, Mike (Sherry) Sollars, and Jeff (Bridget) Sollars, all of Washington Court House and a host of nieces and nephews.

Ann was many things: a kind soul, free spirit, cherished friend, but most of all, a proud, loving mother who will be forever loved, and forever missed.

A private memorial service will be Monday, March 21, 2022, at the Kirkpatrick Funeral Home in Washington Court House with Mell Wickensimer, director of visitation at Grace United Methodist Church, officiating.  Burial will follow in the Washington Cemetery.

    Ann left an indellible mark on those of us who grew up with her and were her friend. She was a true, honest, and real friend to me all through school. She didn’t judge others, and didn’t care about clicks. She was always authentic, funny, and supportive.
    Shocked and devasted to find out that she has left us. Wishing her family peace, sending prayers. Angel’s Wings Ann.

    My cousin Ann was like the little sister I never had, and we were “thick as thieves” in our youth. I spent countless hours with her enjoying harmless summer fun in the country, always spending the week with her at the Fayette County Fair. I will cherish those summer memories always and keep them close to my heart. Frank was undoubtedly waiting for her with open arms in heaven, and I am certain that he pulled her in tight when she arrived. She is at peace and pain-free now, which will hopefully be a comfort to Janet, her brothers and sister-in-laws, and her sons and their extended families in the days, months and years to come. Please know that you are all very much in my thoughts and prayers.
    Much Love,
    Cousin Julie
