Anna Marie Moss

CLINTON — Anna Marie Moss, 84, of Clinton, died peacefully on Friday, April 14, 2017, at Decatur Memorial Hospital.

She was born on May 27, 1932, in DeWitt County, to Edward and Ida (Hall) Dial and remained a life-long 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 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 and two great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two brothers; Phillip Dial and Robert Dial; along with 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.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, at Calvert Funeral Home, Clinton, with Rev. Michael Taylor officiating. Immediately following the services, her ashes will be interred at the Texas Township Cemetery, Clinton, in her family plot alongside her parents, sisters, and brothers.  

After the graveside services, everyone attending the service is invited to come to the Clinton Country Club for luncheon, where we can 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.
