Anne Pierce Bailey, a wonderful wife, mother, and Nana, age 92, of Seymour, Tennessee, was called home by her Lord and Savior on October 16, 2022 surrounded by her loving family.
She was a committed Christian who loved Jesus and had the absolute assurance of her salvation and eternal life. She is finally reunited in heaven with Joe, her beloved husband of 61 years, as well as her parents, Ed and Wyola Pierce, of Jasper, Alabama. Two of their favorite hymns were "It Is Well With My Soul" and "How Great thou Art" and Anne enjoyed singing them with Joe in his last days before he passed in 2012. Anne grew up in Jasper before moving to Birmingham after marriage. For over thirty years, she was a member of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama. She touched hearts with her God given singing voice and sang solos in the choir, as well as at weddings and other events. Her voice was only matched with her amazing talent for painting beautiful pictures that won several awards through the years.
She is survived by her daughter, Jan Bailey Cleveland (David), one granddaughter, Lisa Cleveland Dovenbarger (Bryce), and four great grandchildren, Lily, Logan, Ella, and Ethan of Knoxville, Tennessee, her sister, Jeane Pierce Freeman, of Jasper, Alabama, and her brother, Thomas Grimes Pierce (Belle Cameron) of Atlanta, Georgia, as well as seven nieces and nephews.
