Several years ago, Annell wrote the following:
“A Fitting Obituary”
“Annell Winbery, having lived well past her expiration date, shuffled off this mortal coil on May 9, 2023. She did not go gently into this good night, but fought death long and hard. Unfortunately death held the advantage of the scythe.
“Annell was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon, after 53 years of marriage.
“Annell had been a public school teacher for 37 years and as far as she knew, most of her students went on to live useful lives.
“She is survived by her son Mark Winbery and others as noted above, who will at their convenience, choose a time and place for a memorial service.
“I was Annell Winbery and I approve this message (having written it myself).”
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Christiansburg Public Library or Montgomery County Museum in Annell’s honor.
