Anne had a wonderful career at Campbellsville High School.

She taught English, French and served as the librarian for 27 years. To say that Anne was an avid reader is an understatement. There was not a time when she was well that she wasn't reading one or more books. She loved the outdoors and traveling. When not reading, she was tending one of her gardens, hunting for wildflowers with Bea Montgomery or on the lake with Allen. She played with several bridge clubs over the years. Later in life, she enjoyed spending the winters in Orange Beach, Al. She was a member of the DAR and Bethel First Presbyterian Church.

Anne was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Abby Hall Carter and one son, Allen Lee Burress, Jr.

  • Son: Dr. John W. Burress and his wife Dr. Vicki Modest of Weston, MA

  • She has one brother: Mike Hall, Sr. (Lennie), of Campbellsville.

  • Three nephews: Don Henderson, Lee Henderson and Michael Hall, Jr.

  • Two nieces: Michelle Hall O'Rourke and Abby Carter Emanuelson, along with their respective families.
