Obituary of Anne Fielding Ford

Ford, Anne Fielding – 92, died Friday August 9, 2019.   She was born April 13, 1927 in Sarasota, FL to William Sims Fielding and Anne Bright Fielding.

As 1944 Graduate and Valedictorian of St. Petersburg High School, Anne went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Florida State University, where she was a member of the College of Arts and Sciences Honorary Society Phi Beta Kappa, and the College Honorary Mortar Board.  Later in life she attained a teaching certification from the University of South Florida, and spent many years teaching English at Disston Junior High School, Tyrone Middle School and Northeast Senior High School.  She also was a member of the Junior League of St. Petersburg, The Garden Club and volunteered at the Science Center of Pinellas County.

During her life, she loved raising orchids, gardening, quilting, traveling, camping, cats, reading, crossword puzzles, and thousands of rounds of the word game “Perquackey”.   Her sweet disposition and warm sense of humor endeared her to all who knew her.
