Britt Anne Blanton Keever, 87, of Rutherfordton, passed away on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.
Born November 10, 1931, Annie was the widow of the late Jesse Fidell Keever, Jr. The youngest child of her parents, the late Cyrus Rolan Blanton and Lela Rebecca Scoggin Blanton, Annie was preceded in death by all of her older siblings: Roy, Festus, Reid, Earl, and Grace Blanton Roddy. Numerous nieces and nephews survive her including Vernell Blanton Keever, who was as close as a sister.
Heartbroken by the loss of her mother is Annie's daughter and only child, Cynthia Keever Goforth, of Spartanburg, SC, whose husband, John Burgess Goforth, was loved and treated by Annie as if he had been her own son. However, the most special place in Granny's heart was reserved for her two grandsons. This cannot be overstated.
A memorial service was held at Gray's Creek Baptist Church in Rutherfordton, where Annie was a lifelong member.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Hospice of the Carolina Foothills at PO Box 336, Forest City, NC or to the children's choir programs at Gray's Creek Baptist Church, at 751 Grays Creek Church Road, Rutherfordton, NC 28139.
