Anna Mae will be remembered as a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a woman of deep faith, who showed her Christianity in everything she did.

Anna Mae enjoyed socializing, attending her grandchildren’s events, shopping, traveling, and spending time with her family.
