Anne Wallace Newton Dorn, affectionately known as "Aunt Annie", "Mom", "Keeper of the Zoo", "wonderful daughter", "nugget", "hey you", "honey", "sugar baby" and most of the time, simply, "Annie." Anne passed on May 15, 2014 after a short and unexpected illness. She is married to Wm. Jennings B. Dorn, Jr. for 30 years and is the mother of Madison Elizabeth Dorn and William J.B. Dorn, III. Madi attends Greenville High School while William graduated Christ Church's CCES and now attends the American University of Paris, Paris, France. Anne is survived by her parents, Robert Newton and Elizabeth Felder Newton of Beaufort, SC, her brother Andrew Newton and his wife, June and her beloved nephews - James and Thomas Newton, and Bruce Lawrence, Will Batson, Patrick Dorn-Kennedy, Griffith Dorn, Christopher Pracht (aka, Aunt Annie) and Oliver, Camden, Lexi, Nicolai and Sebastian (aka, Keeper of the Zoo).
Anne graduated Heathwood Hall Episcopal High School in Columbia, SC, and attended Columbia College before meeting Jennings (Anne says he's the reason in not earning her degree). Anne professionally played the violin with both the Florence and Columbia Orchestras and cherishes her many close musical friends.
Anne is a vibrant, talented, and caring person who enjoys music, outdoor activities (like hunting where she was as accomplished with an archery bow as she was with the violin bow), baking cakes, and unique wilderness trips to Montana with cousin Salley, fly-fishing and horseback riding, and especially beach trips to Pawley's Island. Anne's career (as mother, aunt, and professional) took her from the wonderful cities of Augusta, Charlotte, New York, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Greenville. She is not only accomplished in her "mom career" but also in her professional career earning numerous promotions culminating with Coordinator of Business Development at Porter Novelli in New York.
Anne's life will be celebrated with a Memorial Service at 11 AM on Monday, May 19th at Christ Church Episcopal, Markley Chapel, Greenville, SC, with her family receiving friends following the service at the church. The family and friends will join each other at Barratt House in Greenwood, SC, on Sunday, May 18th at 4 PM for the burial service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Christ Church Episcopal Music Ministry.
