Annie Jo Horn (nee Forbis), 67, passed away peacefully in her home early Thursday morning (September 18, 2014) after losing her battle with cancer. She was born on November 10th, 1946 in Oneida, Tennessee. Annie was surrounded by her loving family. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Gary Lee Horn and his loving son Michael Horn. Annie is survived by her cherished sisters, Bonnie Jackson and Betty Slaven and her brothers James Forbis and Jessie King. Her four children Jonathon (Summer) Evans, Joyce Adkins, Jamey Evans and Jerrie Vitatoe.. Four step-children Gilbert Horn, Gary Horn, Sarah Horn and Stacey (Paul) West.. As well as her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and best friend Audrey. Annie was light-hearted; she loved her family, life, and making others laugh. She always bragged about her kids, grandkids and great grand-babies.. Especially her little buddy, Judah. Given the gift of gab, she would tell you her whole life story in about an hour if you gave her the chance. She worked at the Western Hills Wal*Mart since it opened. She took pride in her job and worked until near the end of her life. In May of 2013, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought it, and fought it hard. Unfortunately, it came back, aggressively, and we were given three more weeks with her. No matter what life gave her, Annie took it with a happy-go-lucky attitude. She, and everyone else around her, knew how strong she was. Annie was an inspiring, beautiful, thoughtful and hilarious woman who will be missed by all. Family and friends are invited to a visitation from 5 PM until 8 PM at the Dalbert, Woodruff & Isenogle Funeral Home, 2880 Boudinot Ave., 45238. And a funeral service Tuesday 11 AM at the funeral home.
Donations will be accepted at the funeral home.
