Annie Elizabeth Trussler Amos, of Salem, VA, passed away at home Saturday, February 12, 2022 after battling multiple health issues for years.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband, William Amos, Sr.; her parents, Homer and Ollie Trussler of Vinton; brothers, Jimmy Trussler and Lee Trussler and sister, Helen Carr.
Surviving to cherish her memory are children, Pat Carter (Danny) of Salem, VA, William Amos, Jr. (Rhonda) of Vinton, VA, Barbara and Betty Amos of Salem, VA, Vicky Reed (Don) of Salem, VA, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Also surviving are sisters, Edna Foutz, Mary Thornhill, Linda (Paul) Carr and Rosie Trussler; sister-in-law, Myrna Trussler and numerous nieces and nephews.
Annie enjoyed hard work, loving and supporting her family, putting others first and making lasting memories for anyone she met. Making others happy, especially children, gave her the most joy and was always reflected in her wonderful smile. Never seeking the attention, she would often quietly disappear after successful accomplishments to begin her next goal of helping someone else. She was very proud of her work with special needs children at Masons Cove Elementary and her work of founding the Masons Cove Civic Club, which was instrumental in getting the Masons Cove Fire and Rescue building constructed and eventually having emergency services in the community. Mom loved sharing her faith in God, her birds and the many trips to the beach with her family.
Annie’s life will be celebrated Friday, February 18, 2022 with a memorial service at 2:00 p.m. at Lotz Funeral Home, Vinton, VA with Pastor Dan Carawan officiating. The family will receive guests an hour prior to the service with interment immediately following at Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens.
A special Thank You from the family to Annie’s favorite caregiver and friend, Violet Moran and the many friends who helped support the family during this journey.
