Anne White Winslow

Anne (White) Winslow, October 14, 1945 – December 9, 2023.

Asheboro, North Carolina.

 

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises.

her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.’” 

                                                 -Proverbs 31:28-29

 

Loving wife, nurturing mother, grandmother, great grandmother and beloved 

friend to many, Anne Winslow passed away peacefully at her home to be with the Lord on the morning of December 9, 2023.

 

 

Anne was born in Hertford, North Carolina and was the daughter of the late Leroy and Ruth White. She graduated in 1964 from Perquimans County High School where she was a cheerleader and named as class superlative, “Wittiest Person.” She met her future husband,

John Vernon Winslow, at their high school. Their personalities were a perfect match for each other. They started dating in 1961 and married in 1965, sharing 62 loving years together. Anne attended Hicks Beauty School in Norfolk, Virginia before she and Vernon moved to Asheboro in 1965 to make their home.

 

Anne was a stay-at-home Mom for their two children, Kim and Kevin, since Vernon’s job required a lot of travel. Anne was known as the keeper of an ultra-neat and organized home, filled with the good smells of her incredible cooking and the warmth of her kindness and most joyous laugh. Her sense of humor matched that of her husband’s, and she was as compassionate as she was funny. She was very involved and supportive in the children’s school and church activities. Her sewing talents were well-known, as she did the alterations for the Asheboro High School Band and for the many beautiful care pillows her Sunday School class contributed to cancer patients. When the children grew up and were on their own, Anne worked with and provided support to her husband at Clapp Brothers Tractor in Siler City, North Carolina. 

 

Anne was grounded in her faith. She loved her church, First Baptist Church of Asheboro, where she was a member for 53 years. She was active in all children’s activities, serving as a volunteer in the church nursery, vacation bible school and youth trips and activities. She served on the Committee for the Family Life Center and was a member of the Ladies Handbells. Anne contributed her creative talents as a member of the committee that decorated the church for Christmas each year. This year, the church Christmas decorations will honor her.

 

Anne’s canine companions were very dear to her. Her past dogs, Sam and Sadie, were recipients of her love for many years. Her dog Hank, a lovable 100-pound black lab, was her constant companion who was always by her side. Hank will be a comfort to John, and he will miss Anne as much as anyone.

 

Left to cherish her memory, are her loving husband, John Vernon Winslow, of Asheboro NC, her children Kimberly Anne Davis (Terry) of Badin Lake, NC, John Kevin Winslow (Misty) of Ormond Beach, Fla, her grandchildren, Winslow Barnes (Taylor) of Kannapolis, NC, Landon Anne Mullis (Grey) of Wake Forest, NC, great granddaughter, Wrenley Anne Barnes of Kannapolis, NC , step granddaughters, Taylor Davis of Atlanta, GA, and Kelsey Davis of Raleigh, NC.

Anne is survived by her sister, Trudy Warwick (John) of Virginia Beach, Va.

 

John and family would like to extend a special note of thanks to Hospice of Randolph and

4-Generations of Caring Homecare for the tenderness and sensitivity shown to Anne, and to all the care givers and many friends for the exceptional care to help make Anne comfortable through the many challenges she faced.

 

Services will be held at First Baptist Church of Asheboro, NC, on December 13, 2023, at 2:00pm. Immediately following the service a visitation reception will be held in the Christian Life Center. 

Memorials can be made to Hospice of Randolph, Asheboro NC and Hall Christian Endowment Fund at First Baptist Church, Asheboro NC.
