Anna Wilkinson

Anna Maria "Annie" Wilkinson

"Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies." Proverbs 31:10

A loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Annie passed from this life on Monday, November 16, 2015. She was 89, born in Zeelowitz, Czech Republic, raised in Eppelheim, Germany, and a resident of Baton Rouge since 1948.

Annie was a member of Foster Road Baptist Church, Kleinpeter Homemakers, and Foster Road Joy Club. She enjoyed reading, and was an avid gardener like her father. She cooked and sewed, and spoiled Horace rotten. She was a novelty when she moved here with her foreign accent, and was the favorite aunt to all of her nieces and nephews. Annie had a sweet voice, a huge heart full of love, and always found the good in people. She touched so many lives, and will be missed tremendously.

Annie is survived by her husband of 67 years, Horace Wilkinson, Jr.; two daughters, Suzie Durrett (husband Doug), and Tracy DiBenedetto; two sons, Eric Wilkinson (wife Jamie), and Kurt Wilkinson; brother, Rudolph Pacas (wife Beverly); eight grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Melitta Millin and Rudolph Pacas; and son-in-law, Bobby DiBenedetto.
