Annabelle Lynn Black
Annabelle Lynn Black of Greenville gained her angel wings on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the age of 14 months, surrounded in love by her family.
Annabelle was born the daughter of Shelby Dorey and Zacc Black in Greenville on November 9, 2014.
She has been preceded in death by her great grandmas, Billie Clark and Susan DeKubber, uncle Todd Kimble, great uncle Jim Burgess and great aunt Linda Burgess.
Surviving Annabelle are her parents; grandparents, Jeff Dorey & Kara Helms of Greenville, Troy Johnson of Greenville, Amber Black of Greenville, Robin Dorey & Jerry Siler of Culver, Indiana; uncles Colton Dorey of Greenville, Ian Johnson of Greenville; great grandparents, Wendy Johnson of Greenville, Jim & Jeannette Dorey of Greenville, Thomas DeKubber of Greenville, Jeanee & Mick Bellinger of Greenville, Bob & Elizabeth Johnson of Greenville; close family friends, Craig Hunter of Greenville, Jordan Sexton of Greenville; many great aunts, uncles, cousins, great friends and her 4 legged family, Tank her dog and Kitten her cat.
While young in age, Annabelle definitely left her mark on this world. She was a girl full of spunk who always had a smile on her face and a very big personality. She loved to dance and would light up every time a Taylor Swift song would come on. She was very smart for a 14 month old and could even run her iPad better than most adults. As she was just learning to speak, she could be heard throughout the house yelling “Zacc” instead of dad; her favorite word was “hi” which she loved to say to anyone who would listen or pass her by. Her family and friends will miss her very much, but are thankful for the time they had with her, albeit too short.
Visitation with Annabelle’s family is being held on Sunday, January 17, 2016 from 1-4 PM and 7-9 PM at the Simpson Family Funeral Home in Sheridan.
Funeral services for Annabelle will be on Monday, January 18, 2016 beginning at 2 PM at the Greenville Community Church, with Pastor Chuck Davenport officiating. Final interment will be at the Forest Home Cemetery in Greenville.
