CLINTON — Anna Marie Moss, 84, of Clinton, died peacefully Friday (April 14, 2017) at Decatur Memorial Hospital.
She was born May 27, 1932, in DeWitt County, to Edward and Ida Hall Dial and remained a lifelong resident.
Anna was a cherished mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She enjoyed working outside in her vegetable and floral gardens, and was also an accomplished quilter and talented artist. She was an avid golfer in the ladies golf league at the Clinton Country Club for many years. Her most important role, though, was providing a constant level of support for her beloved husband, Raymond. His success as an attorney is measured by the amount of love she had in supporting him. After battling cancer for several years, Anna is now free from the pain, and her soul is at peace. Her entire family will miss her greatly, but they are thankful for the memories she left.
Anna is survived by her beloved husband of 37 years, Raymond Moss; her son, Ron (Joelle Schnierle) Taylor; her daughter, Venessa (Steve) Sauer; her stepsons, David (Margaret) Moss, Tim (Alice) Moss and Tom (Tina Dorow) Moss; five grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two brothers, Phillip Dial and Robert Dial; and several nieces and nephews, including a special niece, Susi Martin (Frank) Alexander.
Anna was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Mary Dial Martin and Louise Dial Copass; and her brothers, Leland Dial and George Dial.
Her funeral will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Calvert Funeral Home, Clinton, with the Rev. Michael Taylor officiating. Immediately following the service, her ashes will be interred at Texas Township Cemetery, Clinton, in her family plot alongside her parents, sisters and brothers. After the graveside service, everyone attending the service is invited to to the Clinton Country Club for luncheon to visit, eat and rest in comfort. There will be no visitation.
In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to the Samaritan Room or plant a tree in her honor for her love of the outdoors. The family wishes to thank all of Anna’s friends and family for everything they have done for her, including the doctors and nurses at Carle Foundation Hospital, McKinley Court and Decatur Memorial Hospital.
