Mrs. Dessie Ann Sapp, age 77, passed away Monday, July 27, 2020 at Evans Memorial Hospital in Claxton. She was born October 19, 1942 in Hagan to Oscar Vincent and Dessie Ann Sapp Gibbs and lived most of her life in Evans County. Ann was no stranger to hard work, she worked for 21 years with Claxton Manufacturing until they closed; then she went on to work and ultimately retire form Small Wonders Daycare. One of her favorite pass times, she shared with her husband, was participating in Civil War reenactments. She used the skills she gained during her 21 years as a seamstress as she made all of her dresses with details correct to the period! Above all though, she cherished the time that she was able to spend with her grandchildren. To say that she loved her family would be an understatement, even her hobbies of cooking and sewing were in service to her family. Ann was a member of Anderson Primitive Baptist Church and is preceded in death by her parents and her siblings, Danny “Doc” Gibbs and Elizabeth “Lib” Johnson.
She is survived by her loving husband, Gene Sapp of Claxton; children, Laura Ann Waters (Craig)Austin of Jacksonville, FL, Cynthia Waters Pialzza of Fayetteville, GA, Kara Waters (Phillip) Ratley of State Road, NC, Nita Waters (Andy) Callaway of Metter, and William “Bill” (Marsha Ann) Waters of Hagan; step children, Tracey Stanfield of Claxton, Ronnie (Laura) Sapp of Bellville, Tara (Eric) Eason of Manassas and Ryan (Audra) Sapp of Reidsville; 21 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.
