Mrs. Pope was born February 26, 1947, in Columbus, GA, daughter of the late Jim F. Powell and Cleo Hoffman Powell. She was employed with Piggly Wiggly with 39 years of loyal service. She had a passion for serving people. She was a member of the VFW Post 5228 in Smiths Station and served as Chaplain for the VFW Auxiliary as well as District Chaplain. She enjoyed cooking for the VFW members, friends, and loved fellowship. She was also a member of the Patriot Guard where she served in many missions. But one of her greatest joys was spending time with all her family and especially her grandchildren. She was a member of River of Life Church in Phenix City.
Other than her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry L. Pope; one sister, Pauline Floyd; and three brothers, Ellis Powell, Thelbert Powell, and Lamar Powell.
She is survived by her children, Jessica Pope Campbell and husband Peter, and Jerri Lynn Cooper; three grandchildren, Mikahlia Brewer, Jason Turner, and Hezekiah Campbell; four great- grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, extended family members, church family, her VFW Post 5228 family, and many caring friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family request contributions to VFW Post 5228 in memory of Mrs. Annette Pope.
