Anna Mae Sorenson Woodman was born on January 20, 1934, in Middletown, Connecticut, to Elmer and Lucy Sorenson. She passed away on January 8, 2022, at her home in her daughter’s loving arms. She was a native of Connecticut and worked for the state. She met the love of her life on the beach. He won her heart and they married 3 months later on New Years eve in 1955. They moved to Eugene, Oregon where he was stationed for the coastguard and they had two sons. They later moved to Bryan, TX, where he became a Texas Aggie and the third son was born. After graduation, they moved to Pineville, LA and had another son. Ann was determined to have a daughter and the fifth child was born, Donna.
They then bought land in Otis, LA to start a farm. In 1965, Anna was a hands on stay at home mom. She was very involved in her children's activities and volunteer work: science fairs, home demonstrations, ladies’ group, 4-H activities, and church work. Also, she was a Sunday school teacher at Fellowship Methodist and First United Methodist in Alexandria. She later worked for Rapides General Hospital. As her daughter would say, she was THE BEST MOM a little girl could ask for.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Donald Woodman, son, William Woodman, and brothers, Charles and Russell Sorenson.
She is survived by her son, Robert, James and John Woodman; daughter, Donna McConahay, sister, Elizabeth Smallwood, and brother, James Sorenson.
