Ann Hine Snipes, 91, of Winston-Salem, NC, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, after a brief illness. Ann was born in Winston-Salem on May 31, 1931, to Luther M. and Grace Gentry Hine. She graduated from Sedge Garden High School in 1949 and in the early 1960s started her own accounting and tax preparation service. She looked forward to seeing her clients every year and continued to work until earlier this month. Ann loved a practical joke and was notorious through the years for the antics she and her friends played on each other. She also loved the Carolina Tar Heels and would make a point to schedule appointments around their game schedule. An excellent cook, she was well-known for preparing Sunday lunch for the family and was famous for her pecan tarts and “Mississippi mud.” She enjoyed traveling and saw much of the world with her late husband, Bob. An avid bridge player, she spent many years taking beach trips with “the girls” to shop and play cards. She even continued to play bridge with a group of friends every Wednesday afternoon. Ann was an active member of Friedland Moravian Church, where she served in numerous leadership positions, spent many years singing in the choir, and often traveled to serve lovefeasts in Virginia with the “Have Buns, Will Travel” group.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Jane Hine Motsinger, her husband, Robert C. Snipes, a daughter Deborah Kay Snipes, and son Mark Alan Snipes. She is survived by her son Bryan Snipes (Karen) and daughter Marianne Smith (Tim). Grandchildren Richard, Jayson, David (Catie), Ashlyn Felton (Tim), Christian Smith, Amber Sheek (Jake), and Noah Smith. Great-grandchildren Christian and Anna Snipes, Zephaniah and Yuki Snipes, Marilyn Felton, and Harrison Mark Sheek. Niece Sara Barefoot and nephew Kent Motsinger (Teri).
A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, March 26, at 3:00 PM at Friedland Moravian Church, with the Rev. John G. Rights presiding. The family will receive friends following the service. Memorials in lieu of flowers may be made to Friedland Moravian Church, 2750 Friedland Church Road, Winston-Salem, NC, 27107.
