Annah was born at Lexington Memorial Center in Lexington, SC on September 25, 1987. She graduated from Lexington High School and attended Midlands Tech.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at South Carolina Oncology Association who fought cancer with her as well as the staff of Palmetto Richland who took such amazing care of Annah and her family through the many times she was a patient there. The family appreciates all the prayers and concerns expressed during her illness and in the past few days.
While Annah may have succumbed to cancer, she was in no way defined by it. Many people did not even realize how sick she was as she put on a cheerful face so as not to sadden her friends and family. She loved reading and was a wonderful artist and cake creator. Family, in all its forms, was very important to Annah and she usually ended her conversations with “I love you.” She was an expert at surprising her family and friends with things; often times for no reason other than she saw something that reminded her of someone and knew that they would like. It was not just people she knew that she would surprise. Often she would pay for the meal of a couple or a family with little children and get great joy from the fact they would never know who had gifted them with a meal. She would be the first to admit she was not perfect but she kept trying. Her family and friends miss her but know that she is at peace and waiting for them on the other side.
As per Annah’s request, services will be private. Barr Price Funeral Home in Lexington are handling her arrangements.
Memorial donations in her name can be made to Epworth Children’s Home, P.O. Box 50466, Columbia, SC 29250.
