Anna C. Godfrey

Pittsgrove – Anna Cecelia Godfrey, age 71 of Pittsgrove, passed away peacefully, with her loving daughter by her side on Friday, December 7, 2018 at Inspira Medical Center, Vineland. She had been battling various illnesses for the last three years, since her husband, Tom, passed away in 2014.

Born in Philadelphia to the late William and Elizabeth (O’Shea) Angier, Anna spent most of her life in Salem County. She worked as a veterinary technician at the Animal Hospital of Millville for nearly 20 years and then went on to become a home health aide at the Bishop McCarthy Residence in Vineland for nearly 15 years, and retired.

Anna truly loved being a grandmother. She was also an animal lover and avid animal rights activist. She loved horses and was quite an accomplished equestrian. She was a proud vegetarian and had an unwavering respect for all animals. Most of all, however, she cherished the time that she was able to share with her grandchildren.

Anna is survived by her daughter, Anna Frymire and husband Scott of Yardley, PA; one son, James Rowland of PA; six grandchildren, Chase, Hayden, and Bryce Frymire of PA and Natalie, Reece, and Lucas Rowland of FL; and mother & father in law, Tom and Beverly Godfrey of Millville. She was predeceased by her husband, Thompson W. Godfrey, Jr.; and two sisters, Camille and Stephanie.

Services for Anna will be private at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Christy Funeral Home, Millville.

The family requests that donations in Anna’s memory be made to a Humane Society of one’s choice.
