Mrs. Annie Pearl West

Mother Annie Pearl Bridges West completed her earthly assignment on July 7, 2022. She was 96.

Annie was born February 6, 1926 in Buena Vista, Georgia to the late Walter Asbury Bridges, Sr. and Dollie Owens Bridges. Annie was the fourth of six children born to that union. She was baptized and accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age. She was a mother to nine children; Annette, Luther, Rudolph, Gary, Sandra, Teresa, Yvonne, Joseph and Herbert.

She lived most of her life in Southwest Georgia, from Buena Vista to Dawson to Albany. She was educated in the Marion County School System. From an early age she developed a love for reading that continued throughout her life. Among her other passions, she enjoyed cooking collard greens and sweet potato pies. She also loved gardening, both vegetable and flower gardens.

During her adult years she completed the Nursing Assistant course at Albany Technical School and was hired as a Nursing Assistant in 1973 for Palmyra Park Hospital in Albany. She retired from full-time employment in 1988
Annie was preceded in death by her parents, her six siblings, and two of her sons, Luther and Rudolph. She leaves to cherish her memories daughters Annette of Albany, Sandra, Teresa, and Yvonne all of Lithonia, Georgia; and her sons Gary of Albany, Joseph (Florencia) of Columbus, Georgia, and Herbert (Belinda) of Albany. She also leaves to cherish her memories 27 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, 22 great-great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, close family members and beloved friends.

All attendees must wear a mask at all times.
