Anna Mae graduated from Bridgeport High School. She was a devoted member of Evergreen Baptist Church, where she taught children’s Sunday School for many years.

In her spare time, she enjoyed working in the garden with her flowers, watching the cardinals at her bird-feeder and solving jigsaw and crossword puzzles. With a great sense of independence, she lived at home and loved her daily visits from her son and daughter-in-law, or receiving phone calls from family and friends.
