Annie Lee Gant, 92 of Walterboro, slept away peacefully at Colleton Regional Medical Center Friday, March 5, 2021. She was born January 30, 1929 in Colleton County to the late Beulah Kinsey Grant and Clyde Walker.
Annie attended public school in Colleton County. She joined Little Swamp Baptist and was baptized at an early age.
In the early 1950’s, she married the late Warren Gant, Jr., and remained united to him for 51 years. The couple moved to New York in the fifties and resided in Brooklyn. Shortly after arriving in New York, Annie went to work for Health and Hospital Corporation where she held a couple of different positions. The longest portion of her career with the hospital was spent as an Emergency Medical Technician. Annie was a very loving and giving person. Once her daughter was grown, she invited two young ladies to live with her and her husband. Vernice Green Wilson of Bamberg, South Carolina and Bernice Green Moore of Brooklyn, New York, lived with Annie and Warren for 10 years and she loved them like they were her own daughters.
After over 40 years of service, Annie retired from the Health and Hospital Corporation System and returned to South Carolina. Annie and her husband, Warren moved to Walterboro in 1987 and she re-established her membership at Little Swamp Baptist Church. Annie and Warren lived with their family until he presided her in death in 2000. She continued to live comfortably with her family until she was taken to the hospital on Thursday, February 25th,, where she remained until the Lord called her home.

Carter, III of Walterboro, SC; Kimberly Walker of Orlando, FL (Kenneth Walker); Kristen Carter of Charleston, SC (Denise Smith Carter); seven great grandchildren; one sister; Virginia Stephens and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
