Anne Moore Laws died August 2, 2016 after a three-decade fight against cancer. Anne grew up in Oxford as the youngest of three girls. From early in life Anne was active in the music, serving as an accompanist and participating in her school's band and chorus. She earned a degree in Music Education at Howard College, now Samford University. She was active in the Student Senate, Organ Guild and Delta Omicron National Music Fraternity. She was a member of the Homecoming and Miss Howard Courts. Anne taught at Wellborn High School in Anniston where she established the school's choral music program. She also taught at Huntsville High. After receiving a Masters in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Alabama, Anne worked as a counselor at the University Hospital School of Nursing in Birmingham. While living in Anniston, Anne served as President of the Calhoun County Medical Auxiliary, was owner of The Little House Antiques, and served as accompanist for the Little Theatre. After moving to Birmingham, Anne was active in several arts organizations and in supporting her children's school activities. She was a charter member and president of the Village Garden Club, president of the Valley Off-Shoots Garden Club, and a member of the Canterbury Club. Anne was a member of two dance clubs, Birmingham Country Club, and Covenant Presbyterian Church, where she was a long-time member of the Upper Room Class. Anne was a life-long supporter of Samford and served on the Executive Committee of the School of the Arts. In addition to music and antiques, Anne's interests included bridge, golf, mah-jjong, and sewing. More than the activities, she treasured the friends she made in these groups. Of most importance to Anne were her three children. Anne is survived by a son, Hank Laws (Sally), of Kill Devil Hills, N.C.; two daughters, Lauren Conner (the late John Conner), of Birmingham, and Susan Laws (Phillip Consentino), of Washington, D.C.; six grandchildren, Frances, Catherine and Elizabeth Conner, Ella Laws and Holden and Caroline Consentino. Anne is also survived by a sister, Kathleen Head of North Augusta, S.C., and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. Anne was predeceased by her parents, Lorena Prater Moore and Ewell Moore and her sister, Hazel Moore Burns. A service will be held at Covenant Presbyterian Church today at 11 a.m. The family will receive friends prior to the service at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to School of the Performing Arts, Samford University, 800 Lakeshore Drive, Birmingham, AL, 35205, for music scholarships; Covenant Presbyterian Church, 65 Old Montgomery Highway, Birmingham, AL, 35209; or online to the Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB.
