Anne Hudson Hankins obituary

Anne Hudson Hankins, age 103, passed from this life on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012 at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, Tallahassee, Fla. She was born in Kashing, China, the youngest of seven children of Presbyterian missionary parents, the Rev. Waddy H. and Maude Hudson. Returning to the United States during the First World War to attend school, she graduated from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga., in 1930. Trained as a physical therapist, she worked at Warm Springs, Ga., where she met her future husband, Frank H. Hankins Jr. They were married in 1936 and lived in Florida, New York and then New Jersey where she was active in her church and community, helped to start a scout troup, coordinated YMCA programs and became a remedial reading teacher. She and her husband moved to Ft. Pierce, Fla., in 1973, where she was again involved with her church and, well into her nineties, greatly enjoyed sailing her small sloop, swimming in the ocean, and playing tennis with her group of friends. After her husband passed away, she moved to Barnesville, Ga., to be near family. She is survived by her children, Anne H. Bing, of Old Lyme, Conn., Timothy H. Hankins, of Socorro, N.M., and Frank C. Hankins of Crawfordville, Fla., and Meansville, Ga., as well as eight grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She will be interred in Greenville, S.C. in the Hudson Family plot. A memorial service will be held in Barnesville, Ga., in November.
