Ann M. Cauthen

West Columbia—Ann M. Cauthen, 80, of West Columbia, SC passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by loved ones, on October 10, 2017. Born in Clarendon County to the late Archie and Alma Morris, she grew up in Turbeville and graduated from East Clarendon High School in 1953.

Throughout her journey, Ann impacted all those she encountered with her joy, class and sense of humor. Her smile (most often framed with red lipstick) was infectious. And while she always exhibited a passion for life, her greatest passions were her children and grandchildren.

Ann is survived by her daughter, Le Ann (Randy) Crowe of West Columbia; son, William Jonathan Gibbons of Eastover; and her grandchildren, Jonathan Gibbons, David Beale, Joshua Crowe, Charlotte Ann Crowe and Rebecca Crowe, all of West Columbia.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, William “Bill” Cauthen; her son, Stan “Bubba” Gibbons; and her two brothers, Jimmy and Bobby.

The family expresses their deepest gratitude to those that loved, served, and cared for their Mother and Granny Ann throughout her last days: Maggie, Gail, Henrietta, Arlene, Donna, Dr. Norma Khoury, Dr. Mary Ackerman, and Dr. Francis Goldstein.

Friends and family are invited to Thompson Funeral Home at Greenlawn Memorial Park on Friday, October 13, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. for a visitation. Funeral services will follow at 12 p.m. in the chapel. Interment will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Contributions in her loving memory may be made to Leeza Care Connection, 201 St. Andrews Road, Columbia, SC.
