The daughter of the late Albert Weldon, Sr. and Alberta Ewan Weldon and the wife of the late Charles Jackson Carver, she was born in Newport and had lived there nearly her entire life except for a 20-year period she had resided in Millville. Prior to her retirement, she had been employed as a bus driver with the Laidlaw Bus Company for over 30 years. Anna Mae attended Newport Baptist Church and in her free time enjoyed painting ceramic animals, putting together puzzles, doing number fill-in books, scratching off lottery tickets, coloring books, playing Pinochle and Poker with family and friends.
