Frances Anne Futch Mosley, passed away surrounded by sweet love and affection on June 12, 2022. Anne was born to the late James Edgar and Evelyn Jackson Weeks of Savannah, GA and leaves behind her devoted brother James Edgar Weeks of Rincon, GA and Foy’s sister, Earline Shearouse or Pooler.
Anne met and married the husband of her youth and 48 years, Edward Foy Futch, after he dared her to kiss him while hanging out the window of a school bus at the Anderson Street School in Savannah, GA. Anne and Foy raised their two girls with a united front and never argued in front of them. Their children are Robin Woods (Jeff) of Midway, GA and Heidi Brannen (Donnie) of Kingsport, Tennessee. Robin and Jeff’s children are Dakota Woods and Gatlin Woods (Kimberly) of Midway and Heidi’s children are Christopher Brannen of Kingsport, TN and Elizabeth Brannen Horne (Caleb) of Williamson, West Virginia.
Anne loved and prayed faithfully for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren always. Anne was privileged to marry the love of her golden years, John Fate Mosley of Lyons, GA after being introduced at a fourth of July party in YEAR. She and John loved to garden and many enjoyed the fruits of their labor. She loved taking rides on the John Deere surveying the property with John pointing out things in nature to her which was fun… except for the snakes; she never enjoyed that part of nature. She loved going to church with John, and being with their friends and family and yes, even John’s dog Gigi. John remained devoted to her happiness and health always.
Anne was blessed to love John’s children Scott Mosley, Sean Mosley and Tara Raleigh (Ray) and their grandchildren Ashley, Brianna, and two great- grandchildren; remembering them daily in her prayers. Anne was a member of Garden City First Baptist Church where Heidi and Robin were raised, Friendship Baptist Church and South Newport Baptist Church where her grandsons were raised and where she took every kid that would fit in the car to church, then lastly serving with John at Lyons First Baptist where she is a member today.
Anne was competitive! She played center on her high school basketball team and was a pitcher for the Garden City First Baptist Church women’s team alongside her best and lifelong friend Pattye Redmond who played short stop and made sure Anne did not smoke any cigarettes before a game. Anne quit smoking in her 40’s and said it was the hardest thing she had ever done. She loved to play cards, recently teaching some new young friends how to play Crowns and Hand and Foot. Anne loved water skiing and could ski slalom. The last time she went skiing Anne was in her 60’s, but Anne’s lifelong passions were fishing, crabbing, shrimping and digging in the dirt.
She absolutely hated a lie. Trust was of vital importance. She did what she said she would do, she kept a clean house, ran a tight ship, and never quit. Anne did not work formally until she was in her late twenties. Foy said, “Once you go to work, you will never quit.” he was right! She worked for the C&S Bank, Kenworth of Savannah and lastly for the John Lyons family (whom she adored) while they were at the port in Garden City then relocating with them to
Thunderbolt at River Services/River Supply as a full charge bookkeeper until her retirement.
