Tribute & Message From The Family

Ann went to be with the Lord on July Third. She was born on June 13, 1937 in Montague, Tx to Harold (Bud) Fields and Dorothy Lloyd Fields. She graduated from Mansfield High School in May 1955. She attended college at TCU where she received an associate's degree and later attended California Baptist College. Ann worked her entire career as a banking administrative assistant. The majority of her career was spent at North Fort Worth Bank which late became Northwest Bank and finally became Wells Fargo Bank. She retired from Wells Fargo in 1999. She then worked for her son-in-law and daughter for a few years at his company, Kennedale Mansfield Plumbing. Ann also sold Mary Kay and later Deborah's Collection cosmetics during most of her adult life. She made many great longtime friends selling and demonstrating these products. Then she and her husband retired and moved to Whitney, Tx in 2005 which was their residence at the time of her passing.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Survivors include her husband Mike Mathias, Sr. of Whitney, her son and daughter-in-law Craig and Kristi Earp of Crockett, Tx; her daughter Kim Earp Mayse and son-in-law Robbie of Grandview, Tx. Also surviving are nine grandchildren: Cannon Earp and wife Samantha; Krisann Earp Watson and husband Will; Kendall Earp; Carson Earp; Cooper Earp; Rachael Mayse Cummings and husband Brandon; Rustin Mayse and wife Ashli; Justin Driver and wife Danielle; Misty Mayse; and Melody Mayse. She was also privileged and happy to know and love her three year old and younger grandchildren Brooklynn Kate Cummings, Hadlee Deann Cummings, Mallory Kate Earp, and one yet unborn great-grandchild. Ann lived for her family. They were the love of her life.
Ann was a true Christian woman that was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Kennedale for many years and after moving, was active in the First Baptist church of Whitney.
Ann was a wonderful person, wife, mother, and friend. She is irreplaceable and will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the multipurpose fund of the First Baptist Church of Kennedale will be appreciated.

Condolence & Memory Journal


I just found out about Ann's passing. I was always so impressed at how she cared for her mother... even in the stressful times she seemed to be able to understand she did the best she could by her.
May she rest in peace.

Mike & Family,

You are in our prayers in this great loss. We are so glad we came to visit you while in Texas in May. It was a wonderful visit for Judy & me. Judy instantly liked you both and had such a good time while we were there. You are correct, Ann is irreplaceable! She was a wonderful person. She will be greatly missed. God's comfort and peace to you all.

Craig and Kim,
We are very sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. We always enjoyed her as our neighbor when we lived in Whitney. She was such a sweet lady and loved talking about her grandchildren!

Danny and I want to express our deepest sympathy to Kim, Rachael, and all the family. These times are so difficult because of our emptiness and sadness but God has given us His sweet Holy Spirit to comfort our grieving hearts and His Word to assure us that we will meet our loved ones again and share in His glory forever. What a comfort to those who trust in His saving power. We are holding you up in prayer and send our love to you today and in the days to come.
