Anna Maye Stump Loughman, 86, passed away Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, in Port Charlotte, Fla.
She was born March 14, 1926, in Akron, Ohio, to Samuel and Zona Stump.
Anna Maye, as a young Navy bride, resided in Oklahoma and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. After the war, she and her husband returned to Akron, where she had her two children. Her journey continued to many places — Colombia, South America; Massachusetts; Northern Ireland; Marysville, Ohio — and in each place, she made many lasting friendships. In 1987, Anna Maye and her husband retired to Port Charlotte. She was an active member and volunteer of many organizations: Elks 2763, American Legion Post 110 Auxiliary, and a lifetime member of the Eastern Star OES Chapter 9 in Marysville. Anna Maye was also a past member of the Gulf Coast Singles, and volunteered many years at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, Fla., and the Monday and Friday night dances. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda, Fla.
Anna Maye will be missed by her children, Lee (Sandy) Loughman of Apopka, Fla., and Linda (Peter) Nannini of Holliston, Mass.; grandchildren, Kristen Loughman, Robert Loughman, Michelle Nannini Beaudin and Michael Nannini; two great-grandchildren; two step-grandchildren; three step-great-grandchildren; sisters, Juanita Onile (Bill) Wilder and Norma (Donn) Spiegel; many nieces and nephews; and very special friend and companion, Francis (Bud) Livezey. She was preceded in death in 1994 by her husband of 50 years, Robert H. Loughman; parents, Samuel and Zona Stump; and sister, Cathleen V. Stump Grennan.
At Anna Maye’s request, there will be no calling hours; her expression was for a private interment to be held by her family in Hollywood, Fla. Expressions of sympathy may be made in her name to the American Cancer Society, or the charity of your choice. Friends may visit the Charlotte Memorial Funeral Home memory book and extend their condolences to her family.
