Annie Lee Cannon Lewis passed away suddenly on Monday March 30th, 2015 in Conroe, Texas. Born in Asheville, NC on June 3, 1921, to Harry E. and Henrietta Freeman Cannon, Annie Lee grew up in Gainesville, FL with her two brothers Calvert W. Cannon and Harry E Cannon, Jr, all preceding her in death. She earned her Education degree at Florida State College for Women, (Florida State) and was active in Chi Omega sorority. She was a teacher prior to marrying her husband of 63 years, Charles H. Lewis Jr. in June of 1944. Annie Lee's life was devoted to serving her family, church and community.
