Anna Stanley Obituary, Funeral And Cause Of Death Revealed


On Monday, November 10, 2014, Anna Johnson Stanley, the mother of Andy Stanley and Becky Stanley Brodersen, died away while surrounded by her loved ones.

She was 83 years old at the time of her death.

The exact reason for her death is not revealed yet. 

In addition to her two sisters, Elizabeth Sawrey and Dorothy Hulett, Anna is survived by her son Andy, his wife Sandra, her daughter Becky, six grandchildren, Andrew, Garrett, Allie, Jonathan, Annie, and Matthew; one great-grandchild, William, and her daughter Becky.

Anna Margaret Johnson was born in Smithfield, North Carolina, on October 9, 1931.

While teaching at George Mueller Christian School in Miami, Florida, Anna majored in art at Richmond Professional Institute in Richmond, Virginia. 

She served in North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, and Georgia with her husband, Dr. Charles F. Stanley. 

Anna was a talented pianist and Bible teacher. Until her engagement was limited by sickness, she continued to be active in various religious activities. 

Anna Stanley rose to fame after her marriage to Charles Stanley. Her spouse held the senior pastor position at Atlanta, Georgia’s First Baptist Church.

The couple struggled with their marriage life and parted ways later in 2000. When the couple finalized their divorce in 2000 after more than 40 years of marriage, it garnered media attention. 

The news of their separation was not well received in Southern Baptist circles, where biblical principles strongly condemned divorce. 

They tried everything to get back together, including marriage counseling with licensed therapists and physicians, but it was ineffective.

  • by calling Charles Stanley a fanatic, you rightly used the word I suppose, since a fanatic is someone who is highly enthusiastic about something you’re not remotely interested in.

  • I wish we could know that it is so difficult to forgive, or so difficult to bear, or so difficult to give in; Only then would we understand the cause of that divorce. We know that both are already in the presence of God rendering accounts… God have mercy on all of us.

  • “the devout fanatic diligently serves his religion”?! Mr. Steve Smith, do you consider yourself a journalist reporting a story? This is a hack job? 🙁

  • I don’t understand why Stanley and his wife their deaths are not known of the cause. 99 per cent of obituaries list the cause of death. No brained, we all will die of something. Hello ? Now what happens becomes very suspicious and many roumers will be spread about their deaths. Why not just be honest???

  • There was NO conflict betwen Charles and Anna
    She said that she no longer wanted to be a Minister wife.
