Anna Marie was a fifty-year member of the United Methodist Church having served as a member of two choirs, superintendent of youth education and preschool education. She was one of the earliest members of the Kernersville Shepherd’s Center.

She was a friend to all, and to paraphrase Mark Twain, she never met a person she didn’t like. Her friendship was sincere and constant.

Immediately following the graveside services, the family will receive friends at a reception in the Brian Holland Fellowship Hall.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the SGUMC Choir Fund, 794 Sedge Garden Road, Kernersville, NC 27284
