Annie loved the Lord and dedicated her life to Christ at an
early age. Annie faithfully began her
days by dedicating her first waking hours to reading her Bible and spending
time with her Lord and Savior. She was a
faithful member at Church at the Cross.
She was also a member of Friends Forever life group.
Annie loved all sports and made sure to stay up to date with
the statistics for both football and basketball. Annie was an absolute fan of the Orlando
Magic from 1992 – 1996, mainly due to one of her favorite players Shaquille O’Neal. In addition to being a huge fan of Shaquille
O’Neal, Annie enjoyed watching Lebron James and admired his talents on the
court. Aside from watching sports, Annie
enjoyed shopping, cooking, spending time and having fun with her family. She enjoyed being a tour guide to her
relatives and friends when they traveled to Orlando. To know her was to truly love her. She was full of wisdom and knowledge. You would always know where you stood with
her, she was unapologetically herself.
Annie leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, Patricia
Steward and Carolyn (Lloyd) Riley. Three
grandchildren, Cortney Stewart, Torrey (Misako) Buckley, Jasmine (Michael)
Thomas and five great-grandchildren, Courtney Rayana Stewart, T’Corey and Ryan
