On Saturday, May 13, 2023 at 3:10 AM Lorelei Jewel Anthony, age 87, Port Charlotte, Florida.
With her husband and daughter by her side, she ran into the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Lorelei was born June 24,1935 to Harlan and Myrtle Smith, Waupaca and big brother Jim.
At a young age, Lorelei, with the encouragement of her mother, learned to play the piano, and played for the Lord all her days and of course a dog by her side.
As a teenager, she worked at Schultz Brothers Five and Dime and also as a telephone operator. She went on and graduated from the Waupaca High School. September 18, 1953 she married the love of her life Lucius ( Bud) Anthony. That day 3 were joined together Lorelei, Bud and Jesus Christ. Together they set out on an adventure that lasted almost 70 years!
The Lord blessed them with three children, Donald (Tanna) Anthony Scandinavia, Patti (Kevin) Behnke Green Bay, Wendy (Mike) Earwood Perry Georgia. 10 grand-children and drum roll please… 40 great-grandchildren, Brother-in-law, Victor. (Chris) Anthony, Waupaca and sister-in-law, Rosalie Bednar Waupaca. All who have been prayed for daily.
Mom was a Proverbs 31 woman “more precious than rubies, hard-working, clothed with strength. Her words are wise (“Mom said!”) And instructs with kindness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her. But a woman who fears, the lord, will be greatly praised. We love you mama.
Lorelei’s request was to all she met, is that they would come to personally know and accept Jesus‘s free gift of salvation and eternal life. John 316.
