Anne Flynn

April 9, 1935 — November 19, 2021

Brevard, NC & Greenville, SC

Anne Garren Flynn, 86, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, November 19, 2021. She was born April 9, 1935, to Marvin and Hassie Garren. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Earl Flynn, who was the love of her life, and a child, Lawrence Earl Flynn.

She was devoted to her family and was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She loved spending time with family, playing the piano, flower gardening, and participating in events to promote the history of Brevard and Pisgah Forest. She enjoyed volunteering with the Transylvania County Historical Society, the Jim Bob Tinsley Museum and the Allison-Deaver House.

She is survived by three children, Brenda Flynn Reid (Joey), Beverly Flynn Jameson (Larke), and Keith Flynn (Paula); grandchildren Coleman Flynn (Melissa), Dusty Flynn (Katie), Flynn McKinney (Clinton), and Jay Reid (Lauren). She enjoyed being Gigi to her 6 great-grandchildren, Carson Flynn, Collin Flynn, Case Flynn, Connor Flynn, Miley Flynn, and Mack McKinney.

Anne grew up in Brevard; she and Earl married following his service with the U.S. Air Force in Korea, after they both graduated from Blanton’s Business College. Anne lived in Greer, South Carolina for most of her adult life and worshipped at Fairview Baptist Church. After Earl’s death, she moved back to Brevard, North Carolina and was a member of the First Baptist Church. When she returned to the family home in Brevard, she enjoyed hosting family and friends, and caring for the flower gardens started by her mother. She loved the view of the mountains, and enjoyed hiking to see the many waterfalls in the area.
