I was at CVC with Annis. We met for lunch in Kingsport several times recently. We always had such fun, and that is the way I want to remember her.

My dear sweet sister, you were taken from us much too soon. Our family has a void now that will never be filled again as your guidance and strong encouragement has taken us through so much heartache and shown us how to have joy even in the hardest of days. Your great sense of humor, positive attitude, compassion, and unselfishness will be treasures that I will hold on to as I continue this journey here. So blessed to have had you as a sister for so many years. My heart is broken at losing you. Loving and missing you forever.

Anniston was a classmate of mine at Clinch Valley College (now UVA Wise). More than that, she was a loyal friend for all these 61+ years. I am proud to call her my friend. May God bless her family.

I was so saddened to learn of Annis ‘ passing. She was a good friend going back to the days of the Work Mangers office at Eastman. I will miss her.

Dear sweet Annis, my forever friend! I would never have made it through college shorthand if it hadn't been for you. I am so glad that our paths crossed again through United Methodist Women and our little college friend get togethers. I will miss you as I know Cassidy will.
