Anna Marie McPherson, 44, of 6109 Buffaloe Road passed away, suddenly, on Saturday, January 4, 2020 in Raleigh.

Anna “Marie” was born in Nashville, TN on September 21, 1975 and moved, with her family to Clinton in December 1977 where she attended Clinton Elementary, Middle School and High School.

For the past several years, Anna Marie, was a U.S. Government contractor for the Social Security Administration, as part of the Koniag Technical Solutions family.  

Anna Marie never met a person or animal that she did not love and hug.  Her friendship was forever.  She loved her Mom, her family, her dogs and cats, her friends, her friend’s children, her friend’s parents, her friend’s dogs and cats.  She loved to dance, music, especially Queen, to read, watch movies, and the beach; but mostly, to spend time laughing and living life to the fullest with her family, friends, and pets.

Anna Marie was the sunshine of everyone’s morning, greeting everyone with “Hi Sweetheart” or “Hey Darlin.”  Her smile, her sense of humor, and laughter were contagious and big.  Her hugs were for everyone and every creature. The last thing she would do is give you a hug, a kiss on the cheek, and say, “I love you, too.”

Like Anna Marie, “Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness of people.”  The Light in the Heart by Roy T. Bennett

Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
