Annette “Anne” Gail McDaniel Brumbles

Annette “Anne” Gail McDaniel Brumbles, of Hamer, SC, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday morning, July 7, 2021, on her 42nd wedding anniversary. After years of bravely fighting many illnesses, she was surrounded in her final hours by her closest family members who sang to her, prayed with her, and held her hands as she slipped into Heaven, where we know she celebrates pain free.
The family received visitors on Friday, July 9th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Cooper Funeral Home, 209 Black Branch Road, Dillon, SC 29536. Funeral services were Saturday, July 10th, at 3:00 p.m. at Kentyre Presbyterian Church, 2904 Kentyre Road, Hamer, SC 29547, with burial in the church cemetery directed by Cooper Funeral Home.
She is survived by her husband, Bobby Dean Brumbles, of the home; daughter, “Abi” Abigail Jane Louisa Brumbles Snyder Austen) of Columbia, SC; son, Daniel Dean Alphonso Brumbles (Angela) of Myrtle Beach, SC; Mar-C and Richie Lambert of Cape Coral, FL; sister, Debbie “Bee” & Gene, Hill of Dillon, SC; grandchildren, Jackson Dean Brumbles, Jordan Eli Brumbles and James McDaniel Cline Snyder, and Gracie Lambert; special nieces, Ashley Froneberger, Autumn Price, and Sierra Froneberger; and a happy host of brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, as well as her special caregiver, Faye “Faith” Dent.
She was predeceased by her parents, all 4 of her big brothers, and her favorite dog, Macy.
Anne was affectionately called “Anniegail”, first by Bobby, and then by her extended McDaniel family for the past forty years. Anne had a fierce love of family above all else. She lit up with delight around her three grandsons and her special great nieces. She conducted extensive genealogical research on her McDaniel clan’s roots in Scotland which was compiled into two books. She spoke passionately about her farm life on Kentyre Road, regaling anyone who would listen with tales of how wonderful it was to grow up at her ancestor-founded Kentyre Presbyterian Church. She was gifted with words and did not meet a stranger. Her children’s friends often referred to her as their second mama from elementary school until present. As such, she lived John 14:1-3, often expressing her love for someone by saying, “I have a room for you!” Her family is certain that her room in Heaven is filled with live flowers, animals, especially dogs, cardinals, and hummingbirds, books, and the color blue, not to mention the many family members who arrived there before her. Anne believed wholeheartedly in the power of flowers and plants to comfort grieving families. As such, her family would be honored by any and all gifts of flowers and by guests wearing the color blue in memory of her.
