Anne Maddry Obituary

Anne Loving Maddry was born on Pritchard Ave in Chapel Hill, Orange County, NC on August 16, 1935.  She was the only child of Frank Currie and Loula Loving Maddry and was the last surviving member of her immediate family. 

Anne attended Carrboro Elementary School (current Carrboro Town Hall), graduated from Chapel Hill High School, and attended UNC-CH.  She was employed by the state of NC for 29 years.  For most of her time, she worked as an administrative assistant in the Computer Science department at UNC and as Deputy Clerk of Courts in Hillsborough.

Her hobbies included playing the piano and listening to music; tending her rose garden and flowers; knitting prayer shawls, children’s sweaters, loveys, and twiddlemuffs; and taking care of her dog Angel – her special companion.  She is survived by her “adopted” family Clarence and Valerie Potter of Carrboro, NC and their family, seven first cousins, and her extended family of “special” friends, whom she loved dearly. 

Anne was such a delight and fun to be with.  She had a great sense of humor and loved to chat.  To the end, she was always so aware and cognizant of things at home and around the town.  Her knowledge of the history of Chapel Hill was impressive and interesting to hear. She was always eager to share in-depth with others. Anne lived her sermon every day.  She had a loving heart, especially for animal and children’s support groups.  She loved her Lord and knew well of her forever home. 

In her later years, Anne was a member of Mount Carmel Baptist Church.  A grave side service conducted by Reverend Barrett Freeman, Pastor Gina Barrow, and Reverend Lee Carter will be held Tuesday February 13th, 2024 at 11 o’clock at Orange United Methodist Church Cemetery, 1220 MLK Blvd, Chapel Hill, NC.
