Anna May Case Obituary
Anna May Case

AGE: 79 • Kennett Square, PA

Anna May Case, 79 of Kennett Square, passed peacefully surrounded by her devoted husband of 60 years, Jerry Lee Case and her adoring family at Christiana Hospital on September 19, 2015.

Anna May was a graduate of Cedar Falls High School (Iowa) in 1954 where she met the love of her life and soulmate, Jerry, and attended Iowa State Teachers College majoring in art. She was a gifted artist and produced many portraits in charcoal, water color and oil for family and friends over the years.

Passionate about antiques since the 1960's, Anna May was heavily involved in the doll collecting world, first as a notable author featured several times in Antique Doll Collector magazine, and a prolific creator and speaker of interactive slideshows about the varied and historic doll genre where she was an established expert in the field. She shared these enormous talents in the Boardroom as well, and served in leadership positions as the former President of the Letticia Penn Doll Club, former President of the Delaware Doll and Toy Collectors Club, the former Regional Director for the United Federation of Doll Clubs of America (UFDC) and as a member of the Doll Collectors of America. A Life Member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and a firm believer in historic preservation, Anna May served faithfully as a former Board member of the Kennett Township Historical Commission and as a former Board member of the Delaware Society for the Preservation of Antiquities supporting the historic Hale-Byrnes House.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Jerry Lee Case, MD, daughter Vickie Lynn Hearn of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, son Brad Alan Case, MD, of Grand Junction, CO, son Michael Scott Case of Norwalk, CT, son Steven Lee Case, MD, of Eden, NC, son Mark Edward Case, MD, of Wilmington, DE, son Christopher John Case of Port Saint Lucie, FL, daughter Mary Heather DiPasquale of Danville, PA, daughter Jennie Louisa Queen of Landenberg, PA, son Patrick William Case of Lady Lake, FL, seventeen grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Friends of Anna May and Jerry are invited to call on Friday, October 2nd, at the Chandler Funeral Home and Crematory, 7230 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE 19707, from 12 PM to 2PM, followed by a Service of Remembrance from 2PM to 3PM at the same location.
