Obituary for Anna Mae Saunders

Anna Mae Saunders peacefully made her transition to her Eternal Home on the evening of Monday, June 24, 2019. She was the daughter of the late Augusta Saunders (Mother). She was born and raised in Blue Ridge, Virginia.

Anna Mae was educated in the Blue Ridge school system and was a member of the Blue Ridge Baptist Church. She relocated to New Jersey in the early 1950s and made Newark, New Jersey her home. Prior to becoming disabled she was a faithful member of Promised Land Baptist Church of Newark, NJ.

Anna Mae made a career of helping and caring for people and their families. She worked many years as a domestic service provider for families in the Millburn and Livingston, NJ area. She was highly regarded and loved by all who came in contact with her; employers and friends alike.

Anna Mae lived out her remaining years at the Stratford Manor Rehabilitation & Care Center in West Orange, NJ. Their staff became her beloved and extended family who looked out for her with great care, love and respect.

Anna Mae had no children of her own, but she cared for her lifelong friend Juanita McMillan’s children as though they were her own. She celebrated along with Juanita all of her children’s accomplishments and celebrations. That friendship has endured until this day. Anna Mae also developed a fond affection for “Angie”, a devoted Human Services Aide who worked at the facility where she resided.

Anna Mae was preceded in death by her mother, Augusta Saunders; and her sisters, Lillian Saunders, Virginia Kemp, Hazel Kemp-Baisden and Betty Kemp.

She leaves to mourn her passing: her dear and devoted cousin, the Reverend Harvey Saunders of Blue Ridge, Virginia; a brother-in-law, Elbe Baisden of New York; the McMillan Family of Irvington, NJ; along with other relatives and friends to cherish her memories.

This Online Memorial has been created to commemorate the life of Anna Mae Saunders. Leave a message on the Tribute Wall to share your favorite memories and offer words of sympathy and comfort.
