Obituary

Anna Lee Davis Hathcock - 96
April 24, 1924 - May 14, 2020

Born to Loren Armand Davis and Mamie Blanche Dozier Davis on April 24, 1924 and was the second of their children. She had a sister, Mary Lorena Davis (Weller) nearly 6 years older. She was born at home, 11 miles south and 3 miles east of Monte Vista, Rio Grande County, Colorado.

She attended Bowen Community School 1st through 8th grade and then went to Rio Grande County High in Monte Vista where she graduated in 1941, Salutatorian of her class. She went to the County spelling bee and later was awarded a certificate in 8th grade for her elegant penmanship. In 1936 she entered a white cake she baked in the 4H fair and got to go to Pueblo for the state fair.

Anna Lee and her dad played for neighborhood dances in people’s homes, she on the piano (she played by ear) and her dad on the fiddle. She also played the harmonica and guitar. She was an excellent seamstress and made many of her children’s clothes. Painting and drawing were some of her talents too. She also enjoyed crocheting afghans and little animals. She enjoyed gardening, flowers, walking around Chapman Park and going to the Dairy Queen nearly every week for 25 years. She also enjoyed going to the mountains, but most of all she enjoyed being with her family. Anna Lee had a lifelong desire to learn and a passion for the simple pleasures in life.

In August 1942 she and a friend went to Denver where she attended a business college and then found employment at Lowery Air Force Base. That’s where she met her future husband Virgil Marion Hathcock. On her birthday, 1943, she met President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the Base. May 16, 1943 she was married in Denver, Colorado. Later that year she was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On June 3, 1947, she was sealed to her husband in the Idaho Falls Temple. She was a stay at home mom and was blessed with 7 children.

She has served many and varied callings in the Church, her favorite being a name extractor from old Spanish records on microfiche, a big help to those doing family history research.

Anna Lee is survived by her children. Larry (Margaret) Hathcock, Columbia, LA; Karol (Roy) Van Horn, Alamosa; Marian Hart, Monte Vista; Nolan (Cindy) Hathcock, South Jordan, Utah; Lola (Mark) Brimhall, Monte Vista; her son-in-law Bob Morgan of Alamosa and her daughter-in-law Suzy Hathcock Winder of St. George, Utah as well as numerous posterity.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her son Gaylon Hathcock and her daughter Kathleen Morgan as well as her sister.

Among some of the teachings to her family were to be honest, modest, pray, do things right the first time and tell the truth! She was a noble example of sacrifice in motherhood. She kept her grandkids many times. Her life indeed was a life of service. She will be truly missed by all her family and many, many friends.

A Graveside Service will be held at the Monte Vista Cemetery.

Arrangements are in care of Rogers Family Mortuary of Monte Vista. To leave online condolences please visit www.RogersFunerals.com.

My dad loved taking us to Uncle Marion and Aunt Anna Lee's home. We enjoyed playing with our cousins. I remember how soft-spoken and kind Aunt Anna Lee was. I have missed being around her...Terrie Hathcock

What a wonderful woman and friend. I learned much from Anna Lee, things that only she could teach me in her very loving way, you didn't even realize you were being taught. God bless her and bless all of you as family. She is one of the greats, always and forever. My condolences but yet, I am rejoicing that she is on the other side of the veil. Rejoice, for she is talking with God.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I wish I could have visited with her in the past few years. She was the sweetest, most kind and generous person I have ever known. Merle and I enjoyed our visits with her and your dad each year. After Merle died I was able to visit her and most of you once in a while thanks to Terrie and Kathy, and especially Jason driving me up there. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. My love to each of you. Aunt Loraine
