BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — One of Baton Rouge’s oldest living citizens has passed away at the age of 106.

Ann Gray was Baton Rouge’s oldest living resident. According to her daughter Deborah Parker-Johnson, living to reach the age of 106 is a blessing. Gray was born on Jan. 21, 1918, in Covington.

Parker-Johnson described her mother as a God-loving, spiritual, woman who had much wisdom and lots of love for people.

She served as a licensed nurse practitioner and a private duty nurse for about 25 years before retiring, Parker-Johnson said.

Gray made a lasting impact on those around her.

“My mother’s love for people and God has made her such an amazing woman,” said Parker-Johnson. “She always wanted to help people.”

Representative Troy Carter said in a post on Facebook, “I will be forever grateful for my opportunity to speak with Ms. Ann Gray. The joy and wisdom she gave to LA-02, especially in the nursing profession is unmatched. May she rest in peace.”

Parker-Johnson said the funeral services are open to the public and will take place at Saintsville C.O.G.I.C., 8930 Plank Road, on Monday, March 4. The viewing is at 10 a.m. and the service will be at 11 a.m.

“I just want to honor her as big as I can since she was 106 years old,” said Parker-Johnson.
