August 28, 2022, 83, Goldsboro –
Annie Perry Edgerton, 83, finished her course in faith and was graciously received into her Lord’s presence on Sunday, August 28, 2022. Annie was born in Wayne County to the late William Randolph and Lillie Mae Jones-Perry on March 27, 1939. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Robert Sasser Edgerton; son-in-law, Michael Bass; grandson-in-law, Davonte Petteway; and brother, Wayne Perry.
Retiring from R.G. Barry Company in Goldsboro, Annie dedicated the rest of her life to taking care of her family. As the matriarch of her family, they were her most prized possession, and time spent with each of them was her ultimate reward. As her family grew with grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the love she contained for her family simply multiplied. They were the highlight of her life.
Fondness for traveling was ingrained into Annie’s being, especially if her travels took her to the mountains. Time at the Cherokee casino was a special high point of those trips as she enjoyed the thrill of the game and the excitement of the award.
Annie’s husband proudly served as the fire chief for over 25 years in the Elroy Community at Elroy Fire Department. Because of his service, Annie proudly served in his honor with the Elroy Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary for over 40 years.
The family will receive friends Tuesday, August 30, 2022 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home. A service to celebrate Annie’s life will be held on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Seymour Funeral Home with Rev. Walton Aycock officiating. Interment will be in Wayne Memorial Park.
Annie is survived by her son, Robert Keith Edgerton and wife Cyndi of Pikeville; daughters, Sherry Bass of Goldsboro and Jenny Raye of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Jordan Edgerton and wife Ashley, Stacy Grady Lancaster and husband Joey, Brittani Purdie and husband Taylor, Brandon Edgerton and wife Melanie, Brooke Edgerton Stuart and husband Kyle, Tyler Raye, Taylor Raye Petteway, and Mason Bass; great-grandchildren, Kohlton Grubb, Hayden Purdie, Layla Edgerton, Tyson Petteway, Layton Edgerton, Austin Petteway, Landyn Purdie, Kyler Stuart, Maddox Edgerton, Kambelle Stuart and Brody Edgerton. She is also survived by her sister, Jean Taylor; brother, Danny Perry and wife Edith; several nieces and nephews she loved very much and her longtime friend and casino buddy, Bobbie Coley.
