Annie Laura Sherman was born on November 13, 1946 in Jefferson Davis County to Garland and Susie Laura Griffith Lee.  A homemaker, Mrs. Sherman was a woman of love and devotion to her family.  Her grandchildren held a special place in her heart and they brought immeasurable happiness to her life. 

She especially looked forward to Thanksgiving, when all of her family would gather in.  Her table, filled with family favorites including Chocolate Pies, Blueberry Pies and Cathead Biscuits, was a place of abundant joy where laughter was in great supply and memories were made.

In her later life, her family relates that, although she had attended church for several years, she began to feel a drawing in her soul that was only satisfied when she obeyed the Gospel of Jesus Christ, according to Acts 2:38.  Her experience of repentance, baptism in Jesus’ name and the infilling of the very Spirt of God in her soul remarkably changed her life.  A lady that had been known as somewhat shy and reserved now had the overflowing of joy from her innermost being; a joy so great that the Apostle Peter declared it to be “unspeakable”.  From that point in her life, Sister Sherman became a dedicated vessel of God and a student of the Bible, daily seeking out the Unsearchable Riches of His Word.  She was so dedicated in her quest to know her Savior on such an intimate level that she read her Bible through several times.  Sister Sherman was a devoted member of New Hebron United Pentecostal Church.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Garland and Susie Laura Lee.

Her memory will forever be cherished by her husband of 55 years, Shelby Sherman of Shivers; 3 daughters, Rhonda (Bradley) Beard of Jayess, Tanya (Justin) McNamee of Shivers, Connie (Drew) Pruitt of Magee and her 3 brothers, Johnny (Shannon) Lee of Prentiss, Larry (Sandra) Lee of Brookhaven and Alton (Sharon) Lee of Florida.  The legacy of their Mawmaw will also live on through her grandchildren, Morgan (Chess) Thornton, Garrett (Erin) Beard, Chandler Pruitt, Gatlin Beard, Maura Pruitt, Shelby McNamee and her great-grandchildren, Lincoln Beard and Hadleigh Thornton.
