We are heartbroken, but have comfort knowing our loved one is with our Lord and Savior. She prayed many times everyday for the good Lord to take her. She was ready to go from her earthly home to her heavenly home November 9, 2022. Annie Lee Hemmings was born in Surry County on a Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1936, to the late Esker Sandford Snow and Mary Alice White Snow. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, John Wesley Hemmings; brother, Weldon Esker Snow; foster sister, Arlene Martin Medlin. She is survived by her loving family; a son, Johnny Lee Hemmings; daughters and sons-in-law, Elaine (Tony) Lawson, Misti (Chris) Fain; grandchildren, Chad (Ginger) Hemmings, Jamie Hemmings, Wesley (Angie) Hemmings and Rocco Fain; great-grandchildren, Braxton Hemmings, Devin Hemmings, Hailey Hemmings, Ethan Hemmings and Noah Hemmings; special sister-in-law, Lois York Snow; her special neighbors, Bob and Deb Schumaker. Everyone that knew her knew what a strong woman she was. She never complained going through her battles with cancer. She never met a stranger. She always worked two to three jobs at several different places. She retired from Mental Health after 18 years. Annie Lee was always selfless and always thinking of others rather than herself. She was a member of Fairview Baptist Church. She missed going to church and seeing her church family and friends and her pastor, Dr. Billy Nale and his wife, Rhonda.
The family wants to thank everyone for their love and support shown through prayers, visits (she loved visitors, she always said we lived in the best neighborhood and would always wonder who is coming today), calls, cards, milkshakes, food, whatever it was, all was appreciated. To honor her wishes, there will be no visitation. All services will be private. Instead of sending food or flowers, please give to the less fortunate. She will always be remembered as a hard worker and a loving mother. The main thing she was ready to go. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Amen.
