Anna Jean Raybourne Funk, age 74, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 after a long battle with cancer. She entered into rest with her daughter at her bedside and was surrounded by family in her last days.
She was born October 30, 1947 in Moncks Corner, South Carolina. She dedicated many years as a public school secretary and a private school teacher, but mostly as a devoted wife and mother.
