Anna was preceded in death by her daughter, Cynthia Kay; brother, Jack Blair, sister, Mary Janet McReynolds, mother, Naomi Kathleen and husband, Charles Gilbert. She is survived by 3 children, Kathy Gilbert, of Charleston, Deborah Tippie (Jackie Allen), of Charleston, and Brenda Edmonds (Charlie Edmonds), of Milton, grandchildren, Michael Tippie (Alicia Russell), Sarah Spicer (Colton Spicer), Kimberly Justice, Shawn Justice (Camellia Justice), brothers, Thomas Blair, and Randy Blair, and 12 great grandchildren.

Thank you Debbie and Kathy for allowing us to be a part of your moms life. Anna was always supporting the Activity Dept and the staff. When one of us was suffering Anna would have uplifting words. She would cried with us and would laugh with us and at times laugh at us. She would always ask how our kids and grandkids was . Anna was always concerned about our families as well. We will all miss Anna very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you all

I first met Anna at Meadowbrook Acres during an impromptu visit while I was in Charleston visiting with Deb! Deb introduced me to Anna and told her in that introduction that, “Patti is a teacher mom!” Then Anna turned to me and replied with, “You’re one of those huh?” I smiled and said, “ Why yes I am for 27 years now!” Fortunately it did not affect our conversation and visit that day!!! She was a dandy and I feel blessed to have gotten the opportunity to meet her. Rest easy Anna 😇

Ann became my Aunt 57 years ago, we had some wonderful memories. I would spend some summers with her and my Uncle. When she lived in Chicago we went to some plays and music concerts. We always had a lot of fun. Ann was more like an older sister than an Aunt. I will deeply miss her. Love you always.💕💕
