Obituary for Annie Laurie Pulley

Annie Laurie Pulley passed from this life on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, and has gone home to be with her Heavenly Father. She was 88 years old.

Mrs. Pulley was born in Jones County, Mississippi on November 6th, 1929 to William James Saul and Ida Matthews Saul. She grew up in the Erata community, and graduated from George S. Gardner High School in 1947. Annie Laurie received her bachelor’s degree from Belhaven College in 1964, and her Master’s in Home Economics from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1976. She worked as the Dietary Director for Morrison’s Food Service for 10 years, allowing her to serve at hospitals in California, Virginia, and Mississippi. After marrying her husband, Jim Pulley, the couple moved to Pascagoula, MS where she taught school for 25 years with Pascagoula Municipal School District. In 1994, she retired from teaching and served as the House Mother for Kappa Alpha Theta sorority at Louisiana State University for 13 years. Mrs. Pulley was the only house mother ever inducted as a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. Since then she has lived in both Pascagoula and Hattiesburg, MS, where she dedicated her time to her family.

Mrs. Pulley was an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Post 160 in Pascagoula, and the Altrusa Club. She was a member of Arlington Heights Baptist Church and Venture Church where she regularly served. She had a passion for knowledge and teaching others, and a one-of-a-kind infectious spirit that will never be forgotten.

Mrs. Pulley is preceded in death by her husband, James Lorenzo “Jim” Pulley, her parents, and her brother and sister-in-law, Clifton Miller Saul and Dorothy Saxton Saul, and sister-in-law, Lillian Davis Saul.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Teressa and Frankie McNease of Gautier; her daughter, Katie Pulley Weeks of Hattiesburg; by her brother, James W. Saul of Laurel, MS; her grandchildren, Samantha Ringl (Joshua), Laurie Beth Howard (Graham), Joshua Wetterling (Isabel), and Michael Wetterling (Amber); and by 11 great-grandchildren, Anna Lauren Weeks,(21), Ethan Lucas (19), John Weeks (17), William Weeks (11), Brayden Wetterling (10), Avalyn Ringl (7), Izzy Howard (7), Emaleigh Ringl (5), Vera Kate Wetterling (5), AnnaMarie Wetterling (4), Steven Wetterling(2). She is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews whom she was very close to.

She lived an amazing life dedicated to those she loved, and will be greatly missed by her family, friends, colleagues, students, mentors and by all who knew and loved her.
