Annie Bertha Houston

October 14, 1928 ~ November 6, 2018 (age 90)

Annie Bertha Houston was born on October 14, 1928 to the late Jack Coger and Fannie Goodloe in Barton, Alabama.

She confessed Christ at an early age and remained a life long member of Zion #1 Missionary Baptist Church. Sister Houston, affectionately known as "Granny" was a long- time usher in the church. Ushering was both a passion and delight to her. In addition, she served with the Missionary Society and Mother's Ministry.

For several decades, Sister Houston worked and retired as a master seamstress. Her outstanding seamstress skills were renown throughout the community and continued well into her retirement. Mother Houston developed a knack and love for quilting. Whether at the Senior Center quilting or in her living room converted to a quilting room, Granny's works will warm and bring comfort to family members and friends or years to come.

After a life well lived, Sister Houston leaves to cherish her memories: two sons, Phillip and Rickey (Helen); two daughters, Deborah (Ronald) and Janice; one brother, Thomas Granville; eighteen grandchildren, twenty-nine great grandchildren, five great -great grandchildren; a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
