PENSACOLA, Fla. – Anna Emeline Whitcomb, 96 years and 10 months, passed into heaven peacefully Friday, April 24, 2009, in Pensacola, Fla. She was born June 23, 1912, in Doaktown, New Brunswick, to Everett and Jennie Weaver. She married Edward A. Smith of South Bend, Ind., in 1942; he died in 1951 in the Korean War. They had one son, Edward Everett Smith. Anna moved to the state of Maine in 1956 and while living and raising her son in Bangor, she married Frank Leslie Whitcomb of Searsport and lived happily until his death in 1980, after which she moved to Pensacola, Fla., in 1982. Having served for 42 years with various telephone companies, she retired and enjoyed her later years traveling the world, spending summers at her lakeside cottage in Maine and engaging in her hobbies of oil painting, sea shell artwork, berry picking and playing bridge with her friends. Her pleasant manner, ready smile and delicious baked pies will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She was a lifelong member of United Methodist Church and Telephone Pioneers. Her philosophy on life was a simple one, “Live well, laugh often, love much”…and that she did. She was predeceased by two sisters, Helen Lindsay and Ida Currie; and three brothers, Alan, Harold and Willie Weaver. She is survived by her son, Edward Everett Smith; and many loving relatives. The family will receive friends 1-2 p.m. with a memorial service held 2 p.m. Sunday, May 3, at Cokesbury United Methodist Church, 9th Avenue Campus, Pensacola, Fla. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the charity or organization of your choice. Harper-Morris Memorial Chapel, Pensacola, Fla., is in charge of arrangements.
