Obituary for Anna Mae Fryer (Hunter)

Anna Mae (Hunter) Fryer, 93, of Wellsburg, WV, passed away Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at Golden Oaks, Follansbee, WV.

She was born on May 10, 1928, in Wellsburg, WV, the daughter of the late Carl and Gladys (Parrish) Hunter. 
Prior to her late husband’s failing health, Anna Mae was involved in many and varied activities. She was a member of the Wellsburg Christian Church where, over the years, she served as a Deacon, Treasurer, Vacation Bible School leader, and choir member. For many years, she belonged to the Highland Springs Women’s Golf League and the Christian Church Women’s Bowling League.  She enjoyed following the WVU Mountaineers, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Anna Mae was a member of the same bridge club for over 60 years, resulting in good friendships being passed down to the next generation. But what she loved most was being a wife, mother, homemaker, and caregiver to anyone in need. Her outward beauty was only surpassed by her inner grace, kindness, and compassion for others.

In addition to her parents, Anna Mae was preceded in death by her husband, George B. Fryer and a step grandson, Lee James.

She is survived by her three children, George “Fritz” Fryer and his wife, Rita, of Tyler, TX; Richard Fryer and his wife, Nancy, of Wellsburg, WV; Janet Fryer Bodnar and her husband, William, of Pittsburgh, PA; two granddaughters, Anna and Laura Bodnar; a sister, Colleen Bradley of Circleville, OH; two nieces, Debbie and Diane, and a nephew, David.
