Annie Brittain, 1981-2005

Annie Laura Brittain
Annie Laura Brittain was born October 4, 1981, in Los Angeles County, California. Continuously moving about the country, sometimes with her family and at other times alone, she experienced America--its beauty and its people. Wherever she landed, she was simply Annie—artistic, loving,strong, different, friendly, intelligent, generous, thoughtful, determined, non-judgmental, and truly unforgettable. She was a waitress with a smile that riveled Julia Roberts.
Annie has painted her last landscape, written her last poem, and served her last table. She died November 30, 2005, at age twenty-four. Her ashes are buried in Henry Cemetery in Corinth, Mississippi.
She left behind Janet Ambrose (mother), Joe Brittain (father), Azalee Brittain (sister), James and Stephanie Brittain (brother and sister-in-law), James Basil and Azalee Ambrose (grandparents), and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
