May 6, 1918 – Aug. 1, 2012

VIDALIA — Memorial services, reflecting upon 94 years of life, love and a number of wonderful friendships, for Anna Marie Fennick Proctor, who died Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012, at Natchez Community Hospital, will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Calvary Baptist Church in Vidalia.

Mrs. Proctor was born May 6, 1918, in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., the daughter of John P. and Anna Sabo Fennick. Her parents were first generation Americans from Austria-Hungary. Anna married Luther H. (L.H.) Proctor on Aug. 6, 1943, in Yuma, Ariz. He preceded her in death March 17, 1998, after 54 years of loving marriage.

Anna loved to travel with L.H., visiting all 50 of the United States, most of the Canadian provinces and a few of the states in Mexico. Much of their traveling was done in their Airstream, their silver home away from home. Yet as much as she loved to travel, coming home to friends and family always was important to her. She was an active volunteer at Natchez Community Hospital and truly missed the time she spent there with the hospital staff and volunteers. Her relationship with the hospital became more meaningful after she successfully beat breast cancer 16 years ago. Anna was fiercely independent and truly valued being able to live on her own and to be able to maintain her wealth of social activities even after the death of her one true love, Luther. She also truly cherished her family in Michigan, especially her grandson, John, who was the apple of her eye.

Survivors include one son, Lawrence H. Proctor and her daughter-in-law, Cassandra H. Proctor, and one grandson, John A. Proctor, all of St. Johns, Mich.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Fishtown Preservation Society,; the American Cancer Society,; or a charity of choice.
