AnnaGrace Briggs was born in Cheyenne, WY on July 9th, 1973 to Harold and Frances Briggs. She was the fourth of four beautiful daughters, Christina, Rebecca, Alena and AnnaGrace, to bless Harold and Frances.

She passed away at home in Sidney, NE on November 14th, 2021 from pancreatic cancer. Where she was surrounded and comforted by many of her loved ones.

As a child, her sisters remember her as being close to their mother, unless Rebecca was around, then she was Rebecca’s baby. Alena remembers how she was quiet and shy. As she grew up, she and Christy loved to be loud and lively. Throughout her life she was always a joy to be around. After her first stroke at 19, her mother was ecstatic that she got AnnaGrace to read more, Anna never stopped reading, which helped greatly in her recovery.

She was blessed as a mother on December 19th, 1993 with a beautiful daughter, Kyla Ann Briggs, aka “Baby Girl”. Kyla would sum up her mom as, sweet and kind. She loved to see her mom’s smiling face every morning and hear her say, “Good morning Kyla girl, are you ready for your coffee and breakfast?”

AnnaGrace was always a free spirit and lived life to its fullest. Anyone that met or knew Anna always knew she had a joke up her sleeve, even if it was slightly PG-13 or headed straight to R-Rated, you knew you were going to laugh.

She loved to complement people and let them know how much she valued them and thought about them. She loved to read, take care of animals, go on walks, shop, and do the dishes, of all things. She had the biggest heart, offering companionship and a listening ear, to whomever needed it.

Anna’s compassion, friendliness, and sometimes, bullheadedness didn’t go unnoticed, especially with her father, Harold. She loved to help care for and spend time with him. Their polite disagreements were often heard throughout the house. Many times, Rebecca would be the deciding factor on who won or she was there to offer a peaceful solution.

Her many great nieces and nephews would say, she was very helpful, was bold and bright and that she loved to play with them.

AnnaGrace was a remarkably funny, witty person. She was a person of many hobbies, interests, and qualities. The world is defiantly dimmer without her soul here. We know she is enjoying her time catching up with Frances and Alex in heaven.

She was greeted in heaven by Jesus, her mother Frances Briggs, maternal grandparents George and Roseann Rice, paternal grandparents Harold and Grace Briggs, several Aunts and Uncles, cousins Wade Helms, Ramona Helms, Frances Redden, Natasha Garcia, Phillipe Garcia, Rachel McHodgkins, Aaron Briggs, and Alex Lohman with open arms.

AnnaGrace will be clearly missed by her father Harold Brigg, her daughter Kayla (Shelby) Briggs, grandson Brayden Chavez, sisters Christina Lohman, Rebecca Briggs, Alena (Roy) McHodgkins. Nieces and nephews Sherri Wilkins, Mark Lohman, Johnathan Downer, Rebekah Lohman, Jeremy (Paige) Lohman, Onieda Patel, Michael (Haley) Lohman, Steven Lohman, Jessey Lohman, Teresa (Daniel) Masters, and Scott McHodgkins. Great nieces and nephews she spent so much time with MaKenzie, Emilyn, Aunabel, Oakland, Evan, Jeremy, Vyolet, Damien, and Kinsley. As well as those who she wished she could have seen more, Dominic, Madison, Bryan, Phillip, Hayla, Preston, Elizabeth, Mason, and Ethan. Aunts and Uncles Lloyd, Priscilla, and Arnold (Debbie). Many friends, including her very special friends, Maria Williams, Linda Welton, and Doug Wilson.
