She is also dearly remembered by her nephews, Carter Davis and Steve Botto and her niece, Stephanie Martin, her great-nieces, Ace Martin and Leslie Botto Akins and great-nephews, Patrick Martin and Chris Botto. Anne Marie was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She had a heart of gold and was known to be an angel on Earth. Anne Marie was a strong woman with a gentle soul and a warm, kind smile. She was the one family and friends would go to when in need and they could always count on her to lift them up. She would often offer up her loving comfort by telling others, “this too, shall pass”. She was an excellent chef and you would often find her in the kitchen that she referred to as the “Botto’s Bar ‘n’ Grill”. During her lifetime, Anne Marie was dedicated to Jesus Christ and his teachings. She and her husband, Phil were active members of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, St. Brigid Catholic Church, and Catholic Church of the Incarnation. She was President of the Madonna Circle for several years and a volunteer for many more. Anne Marie served as a Eucharistic Minister, as well as worked with the Cenacle Retreat, De Colores, the Alzheimer Association, and Meals on Wheels. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but she is now at peace with her Savior. Anne Marie’s memorial will be held at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation in Collierville, TN on January 7, 2021 at 10:00 am. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alzheimer’s foundation or a charity of your choice.
