Annie Jean Martin Mann, 94, a resident of Enterprise Health and Rehab Center, passed away Jan. 17, 2021.
A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, at Memory Hill Cemetery in Dothan. The family requests that everyone in attendance please practice proper social distancing precautions and wear a mask.
Born April 2, 1926, Jean was raised in New Brockton. She regularly attended New Brockton Baptist Church, where she accepted Christ into her life, and graduated from New Brockton High School. Following graduation, Jean married the love of her life, Jake Mann, on July 26, 1944. The happy couple resided in Troy until their move to Dothan in 1957 where she and her husband owned and operated Jake Mann’s Body Shop. Jean was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and lived in Dothan until her move to Enterprise in 2012.
Jean was beautiful inside and out and had many passions in life. Most important to her was her love for Jesus, her love for her family and her love for her friends. In return, Jean was deeply loved by so many. Her home was always open and you could often find her cooking or baking for others. In fact, Jean spoiled her family by making homemade biscuits from scratch each morning, much to the delight of her late husband. Jean thoroughly enjoyed traveling to visit family and spending weekends at Lake Eufaula. But, she would never stay Saturday evening as Sundays were for church. Jean’s true gift in life was nurturing those in need.
Jean is preceded in death by her husband, Jake Mann; her parents, Collis Martin and Elma Wilkes Martin; and her son, James Eric Mann.
Jean is survived by her son, Shann Mann; daughter, Jeanna Mann Quattlebaum (Russell); daughter in law, Carol Mann; sister, Elizabeth Poulnot; grandchildren: Chris Mann (Courtney), Dr. Chad Mann (Haley), Caleb Mann (Jeanie), Cara Powell (Dr. Adam Powell), Morgan Quattlebaum, Jacob Quattlebaum, Kevin Cherry (Stephanie); and great grandchildren: Carter and Dowling Mann, Lawson, Anna Louise and Mary Frances Mann, Mary Ellen and Elizabeth Mann, Mills, Hudson, Neely, Elizabeth and Anne Collins Powell, Jackson and Cameron Cherry, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Serving as pallbearers are Chris Mann, Dr. Chad Mann, Caleb Mann, Dr. Adam Powell, Jacob Quattlebaum and Kevin Cherry.
The family would like to extend a personal and heartfelt thank you to the Hall 3 nurses and CNAs at Enterprise Health and Rehab; Dr. Andy Gammill and staff; and to everyone who loved and prayed for our Mom.
