Anna Marie Linton Unglesbee was born in Brookeville, MD on November 6, 1920. She shared the family home with two brothers and one sister. She spent her high school years at Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring, MD. This is where she met the love of her life, Clyde Unglesbee. Anna and Clyde were married on October 25, 1941. Clyde entered the Army in May 1942 and served in World War II returning to his beloved wife in January 1946. Clyde started a business, Olney Electric, which grew into a successful electrical contracting operation, with Anna working by his side every day. As they nurtured their growing business, they were able to travel from time to time in the United States. One of their favorite trips was to Hawaii. As family was close by, nieces and nephews alike, have fond memories of dropping in on Aunt Anna and Uncle Clyde at their "store". What fun to just drop in and see both sitting at their desks working away, then their faces filled with delight upon seeing their young visitors. Anna was Clyde's right hand and he her left hand. They sold the business and retired in 1997. Anna and Clyde were life-long active members at Salem United Methodist Church. Anna was a Sunday School teacher for many years, a member of the choir and the substitute organist. She held many positions on the church board, was a member of the United Methodist Women, the Salem Cemetery Committee and was a fixture in the kitchen for the annual Oyster & Ham dinners and later the Lions Club dinners. Anna was able to attend services on many Sunday mornings being chauffeured by her Salem friends. As Anna and Clyde were unable to have children, their loving nieces and nephews helped to fill that void. They built a lovely home in Brookeville, MD, where they shared many happy years until Clyde's sudden passing in 2009, after 67 years of marriage. Anna's life has been blessed with countless loving friends and family. All have been touched by her quiet demeanor and constant love.
Thanks to Maria Khader, RN and Owner of JK House of Grace and her staff for their compassion and love for the last 6 years.
