Annie Lee Hunt McGhee, 94 was born September 13, 1923 to the late Lee and Lizzie Kight Hunt. She transitioned into eternal rest on November 6, 2017.

Affectionately known as “Miss Hunt” to her family, she was a lifelong member of New Hope United Methodist Church. Annie Lee was a faithful and committed member serving in many roles including Sunday school teacher, Church School Superintendent, Administrative Council Chairperson, member of the Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee, Finance Committee, Trustee Board, Church and Fellowship Hall Building committee, Pastor Selection committee and she sang in the choir. She was well known for sponsoring numerous fundraisers in support of the church.

Annie Lee was a 1948 graduate of Clark College and taught at Springview Elementary and Bowdon Primary Schools for a total of 33 years. She was one of the first teachers to integrate the Carroll County school system. She was a kind, compassionate and patient teacher who left a lasting impression in her class. Former students would warm heartedly greet her in the community and share fond memories of her as their teacher.  She loved teaching and encouraged the youth to excel in all their endeavors. In June 1969, she started night shift employment at Southwire and retired after 19 years. Her co-workers often spoke of her hard work ethic and expressed amazement in her production abilities.

She served the community as one of the original members of the Carroll County NAACP, Bowdon Historical Society member, an Election official at the polls, a member of the Bowdon Area United Christian Ministry and helped to organize the Bowdon Community Cemetery.

Socially, Annie Lee was a founding member of the Alpha Zeta Chapter of Alpha Pi Chi Sorority and a member of the Eastern Star Lodge. She was an avid sports enthusiast and gardener. Years ago, she could be found at just about every Bowdon High School Friday night football game (eating her popcorn). She loved sports and was a huge Atlanta Braves fan. Annie loved gardening and spent countless hours in her vegetable garden and flower beds. Her efforts earned Bowdon Garden Club’s Yard of the Month. When not in the garden, she was in the kitchen. Annie loved to cook and share meals with anyone who visited. She had a unique ability to cook breakfast and dinner at the same time.

Annie was married to J.C. Drummond until his death. She later married Charlie B. McGhee and shared 38 years with him before his passing in 1991.

One brother (John Wesley Hunt), three nieces and a nephew preceded her in death: Jacqueline (Dara) Cole, Barbara (Kenneth) Wimberly, Vivian Springer and John Lee Hunt.

 
She leaves to cherish her memories: six children: Yvonne (Terry)Parham, Cassandra Simon, Dwight (June) McGhee, Gwinnett (James) Ladson, Cynthia (Ronald) Woodard and Lisa (Julius) Smith; one sister Mary Nell Mosley of Starkville, MS; 13 grandchildren: Yolonda (Charles), Decha(Amber), Nikia(Shannon), Fayequita (Clarence), Brandy (Derek),  Kinthia (Julius), Vincent, Taylor, Maurice (Taylor), Mallory (Vincent), Justin, Jamaal, Julius,III; 10 great grandchildren: Zalen and Zander, Chapel,  Devin, Tyrique, Nya, Bailey, Hunt, Ivy Lee and Serenity; 3 nephews: Dennis (Yvonne) Harrell, Joel (Sandra) Harrell and Paul Springer; 3 nieces: Janice (Larry) Thomas, Veronica (Alfonso) Walker, Renea Barnes, her longtime friend, Irene Keith and a host of  great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends.

    Dear McGhee family, I send you my sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear loved one Annie. Losing someone we love in death is a difficult event to endure. God's Word has provided a comforting hope for the future, for our loved ones whom we have loss in death. John 5:28,29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. This reunion will take place in a beautiful Paradise on earth, where we'll be able to fully experience the words "death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4;Psalm 37:11,29)

    To The Family, At Job 14:14, Job asked the question, "If a man dies, can he live again?..." He answers that question in verse 15, "You (Jehovah) will call and I will answer you." Job had confidence in the resurrection hope and we can too (John 5: 28,29). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Jesus brings this point out at John 11:25. We can be thankful that Almighty God has given Jesus the authority to bring our dear loved ones back from the grave. Please allow the resurrection hope to comfort you.

    Our sincere condolences to you on the loss of your loved one. Words cannot express the sorrow you’re feeling at this time. Or the pain your heart still feel as the years have passed since your loved one has died. I too have lost loved ones and this promise found in God’s Word that in the near future, death along with the pain and sorrow will soon be gone in the near future has brought me comfort. I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort too. Isaiah 25:8 - He (God)will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (God’s name)will wipe away the tears from all faces. http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    I wanted to express my condolences to the McGhee family. Losing a loved one in death is a devastating experience. However, God's Word says at Revelation 21:4 that "death will be no more." The enemy death has caused an abundance of unwanted tears. Jehovah God will release obedient mankind from the grip of death, and lift obedient humans to perfection on the basis of Jesus' ransom sacrifice. The last enemy death, will be "brought to nothing." (1 Corinthians 15:26) What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones. (John 5:28,29) If you would like more Bible-based information about the resurrection hope, you can visit our website at www.jw.org.

    To the McGhee Family: In this difficult time in your life, may you find comfort in God's Word, the Bible. Psalm 46:1 tells us "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." My condolences.
