Annebelle Morris Royal

Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery

        God called to rest on Thursday, April 8, 2004, Mrs. Annebelle Morris Royal. Annebelle was born in Powhatan, Virginia on April 11, 1910 to the late George and Annie Morris. She was the fifth of eleven children.

        Annebelle accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and became a member of Greenbrier Baptist Church. Annebelle attended Powhatan Schools. She later married Palmer Carter and moved to Philadelphia, PA. They were blessed with two children - Barbara and Pamela. Palmer Carter went to be with his Savior.

        She later married Albert Royal and they returned to Powhatan to live their lives in their home place. Annebelle was an excellent housewife and mother. Her favorite pass time was playing cards with her family and friends.

        Annebelle was preceded in death by her parents, her 1st husband, her brothers, Webster, Justice, Ivory, Henry and her sisters, Ellen and Alice. She leaves to cherish her memory, her devoted family. Her husband, Al Royal and daughters, Barbara Carter of Elizabeth, NJ and Pamela Cousins of Powhatan, Va. Four grandchildren; Kisha Crayton (Terry) of Powhatan, Earl Foreman, Jr. of Farmville, Va., Taurean and Aaron Cousins of Powhatan, Va. Two great-grandchildren, Dystany Muse and Jordan Booker. One sister, Virginia Sadler (Milton), three brothers, Carl, Elton and Earl Morris. A son-in-law, Marvin Cousins, two sisters-in-law, Mary Brown and Helen Morris, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, - but let's not forget a dear cousin and friend, Mrs. Edna Brown.

Our world was made much better because you passed this way;
always giving encouragement, and a smile to brighten the day.
We hold in loving memory many treasured days of old;
Worth far more to us than their weight in gold.
Although you have left us, we will always have you near;
In our storehouse of memories that we hold so dear
Lovingly submitted,
The Family


The family acknowledges with deep appreciation
and thanks all acts of kindness shown during this
time of bereavement. May God forever bless
and keep you in his care.
