Ms. Anna Lou Whitehead, age 85, of Fayetteville, Georgia, passed away on October 18, 2017.
Ms. Whitehead was born on June 12, 1932, in Galena, Missouri to Ms. Angie Barrett and Mr. Smilie Tiede. She was raised in Branson, Missouri, where she made many dearly loved friends. Mrs. Whitehead worked at City Utilities in Springfield, Missouri, where she eventually retired. She enjoyed her retirement working at Silver Dollar City as a cash control agent. Throughout her free-time, she enjoyed being on the lake fishing, listening to country music, and enjoying an occasional glass of wine. She played cards and was an expert in the game of liverpool rummy. Her favorite food to eat was bread-pudding. Ms. Whitehead was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. There was no such thing as a stranger to her kindred spirit, as she could spark up a conversation with everyone she met.
Ms. Whitehead is preceded in death by her parents, Mrs. Angie Tiede and Mr. Smilie Tiede, and her sister, Bonnie Eggers. She is survived by her daughter, Ms. Kelly Daugherty, her granddaughter Ashley Flanzer (husband, Brandon Flanzer) of Iowa City, grandson Jacob Daugherty of Iowa City, and her sister-in-law, Peggy Shirk of Springfield, MO.
