Annie Warren

June 23, 1925 ~ March 7, 2017 (age 91)

Annie Mae Hall Warren entered this life on June 23, 1925 in Lilesville, NC, the oldest of three children born to the late Callie and Ella Hall.  Annie Mae, a true servant of God, loving sister, devoted aunt, best friend, confidante and mentor made her journey home on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at High Point Regional Hospital.

Annie Mae was educated in the public schools of Anson County in Lilesville, NC.  While attending school she was hired as a bus driver and graduated in 1947.  After leaving Lilesville she enrolled in Morgan Beauty School in Charlotte, NC attaining her cosmetology license.  After receiving her license she moved to High Point, NC and worked in the shop with the late Lib Sharp.  While working as a beautician she began a long career with the City of High Point in the mailroom and as an elevator operator.  This employment lasted for thirty-five years, retiring in 1991.

Annie Mae had been a member of Brook Memorial and Memorial United Methodist Church for more than sixty years where she taught Sunday School, ushered and served on many committees and boards.  She married the love of her life, Henry D. Warren in 1981.  They were inseparable.  They both loved to shop and were very fashionable.  Henry died April 7, 2015. 

Annie Mae became a resident of Piedmont Christian Home in September of 2014.  With her amazing ability to befriend everyone, she quickly developed friendships with the staff and other residents.  Annie Mae, our loyal sister, doting aunt, cousin and friend was a proud, independent, smart, stylish, feisty, fun and stubborn as they come.  How stubborn?  Even though she was advised not to wear heels and always use her walker; she totally ignored all warnings, and refused to act her age.  How incredibly thankful we are for these precious memories.

Annie Mae is survived by a sister, Virginia Hall Lilly and a brother, Sylvester Hall (Levenia) all of Charlotte; step-daughter, Madeline Jones of Fayetteville; three nieces, Priscilla Threatt (James), Linda Bennett (Calvin) and Carol Threatt (Leon) all of Charlotte; great nieces and nephews; one aunt, Virginia A. Hall of Charlotte, a devoted cousin, Rev. Nathaniel Lindsay, a host of neighbors and friends who provided transportation to church and all that shared many tasty meals, whom she treasured.
