Mary Ann Ruth Lasater, 92, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on August 18, 2017 at the Circle of Life Legacy Village Hospice in Bentonville with her family by her side. She was born on January 25, 1925, in Rogers to Pearl Irene Deason Murphy and Thomas O’Connell (TOC) Murphy. For the past two years, Mary Ann resided with her daughter Janice in Bella Vista, AR Raised on her family’s apple orchard between Rogers and Bentonville, Mary Ann graduated from Bentonville High School in 1943. Afterward, she moved to California to live with her older sisters and for a time she was a “Rosie the Riveter”. After a few years, Mary Ann returned home to Benton County. On January 25th, 1947, Mary Ann married Joe H. Lasater in the Centerton Methodist Church with Reverend Catherine Ferrill, officiating. The Lasater’s settled in Pea Ridge and remained there during their 68 years of marriage.

Years later they joined the Oakley Chapel United Methodist Church in Rogers where Mary Ann had attended while growing up. Throughout her life she worked at several local industries but she excelled in her role as a nurse’s aide, care giver and volunteer.
