Mrs. Margaret Brown Anthony

Mrs. Margaret Brown Anthony of Newnan, Georgia, died peacefully on July 10, 2013 at age 84. She was born in Coweta County, and returned to Newnan after having lived in East Point, Atlanta, and South Fulton County. She retired from the Georgia Power Company in 1984 after 23 years of service.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Mr. Theo Brown Anthony Jr., and by her parents, Mr. John Edward (Eddie) Brown and Mrs. Blanche Staples Brown.

Margaret Anthony loved her life among friends and neighbors in Newnan, she cherished being "Nana" to her grandchildren, and she enjoyed excursions and camaraderie with fellow Georgia Power retirees.

The family wishes to express thanks to many who gave care and companionship to Margaret during her waning years, and especially to Mrs. Georgia Mae Teagle whose devotion and concern were unsurpassed. Finally, to the staff at Ansley Park Health and Rehabilitation, we express our deepest gratitude for an unbelievable level help and compassion, right to the very end.
