GHORMLEY, ANNIE ELIZABETH - age 101, a retired school teacher, died Friday, January 18, 2002 in Pleasant View Home, Inman, Kansas. Annie was born January 7, 1901, to Augustus and Elvina Neubert in Neubert Springs, Tenn. She graduated from the University of Tennessee and received a Masters degree in education from Columbia University in New York. She taught in elementary and high school in both Tennessee and Kansas. It was while teaching school in Knoxville that she met Leo Otis Ghormley. There were married in the Little Church Around the Corner in New York City August 18, 1928. The Depression drove her husband, Leo, out of teaching at the University of Tennessee and into farming near Partridge, Kanas. In Kansas, she raised five children and returned to teaching when the children left home. When her son took over the farm, she and her husband moved back to Knoxville where she taught school until she retired in her 70's. Leo died April 12, 1980 and she continued to live in TN until the early 1990's when she moved back to Kansas to live with her eldest son in South Hutchinson. She entered the Pleasant View Home in the spring of 2000. Annie is survived by her children, Barbara Lou Ghormley-Appleby of Littleton, Co., Harold Eugene Ghormley of Patridge, Ks, David Augustus Ghormley of Knoxville, TN, Margaret Ann Ghormley-Lee of Homewood, Ala., and Martha Ruther Ghormley-Singh of Calgary, AB, Canada.
