Anne Frances Coley (Tree), 52

Anne Frances Coley (Tree), 52, of Horse Shoe died suddenly on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, after a short illness.

She was the daughter of the late Russell C. and Etheylwyn F. Coley. Anne was born in Albany, Ga., where she spent most of her childhood, before moving to western NC. She graduated from Brevard High School and Virginia Intermont College, earning a degree in equine studies. She was a member of Mt. Moriah Calvert Baptist Church in Brevard.

Anne is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Lisa Coley of Horse Shoe; her adoring niece and nephews, Lauren, Landon, and Ethan; two half-brothers, Russell Coley of Greenville, S.C., and Steve Coley of Clearwater, Fla.; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. She also leaves behind many dear friends, including Donna and David "Corky" Wilson of Toano, Va.; Cynthia Gregg of South Hill, Va., and Dan Bricker of Amelia Court House, Va.; Carole and Marisa Panzner of Pisgah Forest; and a special friend, Frank Summey of Brevard.

Anne loved animals, especially horses, and dedicated her life to training and working with them, as well as caring for those horses needing a loving and peaceful home to live out their remaining years. She will be missed by her family, friends, and the many people whose lives she touched in the horse community and 4-H Club of Brevard.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your favorite animal charity or Mt. Moriah Calvert Baptist Church, 928 Calvert Road, Brevard, NC 28742.

A memorial service will be held at a later date at Mt. Moriah.
