Life and Legacy
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy path. Be not wise in thine own eyes, fear the Lord and depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:5-7).
On Monday, December 28, 2020, Annie Luckey McKinzie, the daughter of the late Moutry and Nancy Boone Lucky transitioned from this earthly life to gain enteral life in heaven. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. Annie was born on May 26, 1946, in Elliott, South Carolina.
Annie received her early education in the Lee County, South Carolina school system. As a young adult she relocated to Thomasville, North Carolina where she was employed at Thomasville Furniture Industry.
Annie was loved by her family, friends and community. She adored her grandchildren, nieces and nephews who affectionately called her “Grandma”. She will be remembered for her cooking, cleaning and hard work ethics. No one will never be able to mimic her famous stuffing, yams, collard greens or cornbread!
Annie enjoy watching the cooking shows, Young and the Restless and Texas Ranger, but most of all she loved talking to her children everyday. She never missed calling them to talk about their daily activities and accomplishments. During her leisure time she would sit on her front porch baking in the sun, or near her wood heater.
Annie was proceeded in death by her parents, two sons, Christopher Luckey, and John Olin McKinzie, two sisters and seven brothers
