Annie Palmer Obituary

It is with sympathy, the management and staff of Slater's Funeral Home, Inc. announce the passing of Mrs. Annie Palmer, Milledgeville, Georgia. Mrs. Palmer passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2023.

Memorial services were held on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at 2:00 PM from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, Milledgeville, Georgia. Repast to followed.

Annie Louise Palmer “Granny” was born August 21, 1938 in Milledgeville, Baldwin County Georgia to the late Jessie Fleming and Annie Mae Banks Fleming. She attended public schools in Baldwin County. She was briefly employed by Baldwin County Schools and later Hollytex Mills in Milledgeville, Ga. However, her primary career was as a Homemaker for her family. She passed quietly at the home of her daughter, Jackie, on October 14, 2023.


Annie was a mother of nine, and dearly missed her husband, “Woot”, who preceded her in death August, 2022. She spoke of him often and immensely grieved his passing , as they were together over 60 years. She deeply loved her children, and though nine was a “bunch” to deal with, she cared for them with all she had, and then some. Her giving didn't stop with the ones she gave birth to, as “Granny’s” was the only daycare most of her grands and great-grands knew, along with the many others she babysat, fed, or nurtured--young and old.


She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses over 35 years ago and had fond memories of her door-to-door ministry and meetings at the local Kingdom Hall. Being homebound didn’t stop her spiritual family from reaching out caringly and to support her spiritual needs. She fondly awaited the visits of a group of sisters from her congregation—Marilyn Knox, Wylane Holsey, Sister Finney and many others who accompanied Marilyn over the years. They studied the Bible, sang praises to Jehovah and helped her write letters to family and friends to tell them about God’s Kingdom and the many blessings it will bring. Marilyn Hough often played the monthly Broadcast and other spiritual gems to her over the phone. The Jones family reminded her when to “hook-up” by phone to listen to the weekly meetings and they came to see her, even if it meant waving to her from their car during the COVID pandemic.


Annie was preceded in death not only by her parents and husband, Eddie Palmer, but also by eight brothers: Tommy Fleming, Jessie Fleming Jr., David Fleming, Benjamin Fleming, Singleton Fleming, Daniel Fleming, Jack Edward Fleming, and Leon Fleming.


She leaves to cherish her memories: Nine children: Patricia W. Brooks (Donald), David Ward, Charles Ward (Kimberly), Janet (Moses) Sands, Jacqueline Howard, and Eddie “Stan” Palmer of Milledgeville, Georgia; Linda Lewis (Tommy) of Conyers, Georgia; Lisa Palmer of Alpharetta, Georgia; and Frederick (LaRhonda) Palmer of Byron, Georgia. One sister, Gloria Andrews, and two brothers, John Edward (Lynn) Monday and Johnny (Mary) Monday all of Milledgeville, Georgia. Seven sister-in-laws: Fannie Rush, Jannie (Lorenzo) Jackson, Mossie Palmer, Bessie Binion, Alice (Melvin) Gregory, Beatrice Fleming, and Jacquelyne Fleming; and one brother-in-law, Charlie Palmer. She is further survived by 23 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; all of whom will miss her dearly.
