Anna Grace McMath, newborn daughter of Amista Rowell McMath (Misty) and Joseph Leroy McMath, III (Joey,) and younger sister to Abriana Joy McMath (Abby) and Josiah Luker McMath (Josiah), went to the ams of her Heavenly Father on March 27, 2012, just five hours after her earthly family embraced her into theirs. Her life was brief but so beautiful, and her family longs for the day when they will all be reunited.
Anna lived within her mother's womb for 8 months, and during that time, she made a great impact on many who loved her and prayed for her. She was born at Sacred Heart Hospital on March 27, 2012 at 10:18 a.m., weighing four pounds, eleven ounces. Every treasured minute of her brief life was sacred and was filled with love and joy, and she passed peacefully while being cradled by her family. Hers was a short but full life designed by her loving Creator.
Anna leaves behind her Mama, Daddy, big sister, Abby and big brother, Josiah of Pace, FL, as well as grandparents, Joy and Roger Rowell of Berrydale, FL; grandparents, Susan and Joe McMath, Jr., of Flomaton, AL; great grandmother, Virginia Boothe of Allentowwn, FL and great grandmother, Mary McMath of Atmore, AL. She also leaves behind aunts, uncles, cousins, and many, many family members who will always miss sweet baby Anna. Anna was precded in death by a sibling miscarried a year before Anna's passing as well as her great grandparents, Alex Boothe, Jr., of Allentown, Hazel and Pasco Rowell of Berrydale, Joe McMath, Sr., of Atmore and Inez and Clyde Northrop, Jr., of Flomaton.
