Annie Belle Daubenspeck Mangrum
Birth: Nov. 21, 1903
Death: Jun. 13, 1995
Limestone County
Alabama, USA

Annie Belle Mangrum was my grandmother on my mother's side of the family. Her maiden name was Daubenspeck and she married Wiley Woodson Mangrum. They had two boys and two girls, of which my mother, Allene, was next to the youngest. Mother and Lucille have since passed away since Grandmothers death. Her youngest, Virgil, died in a car wreck in 1973. Her son, Alton, just recently passed away . My earliest remembrances of grandmother was when she and granddad lived in a very old wooden house in Fairview, TN. I have written more about that period of time on my grandfathers site so I will spend a little time of after she moved in a mobile home behind where my parents lived. My father set up the mobile home and seen to it that everything was in place for her to move to Limestone county of Alabama so my parents could take care of her. I know it must have been a tramatic move for her because all she had ever known she was now moving away from. She became very dependant on my parents and I remember after my dad passed away it scared her because he used to check on her every morning and it was he that seen to it that they got to go anywhere because my mother had discontinued to drive for a long period of time.
I remember grandmother as being a big worrier. She let everyday events and problems trouble her tremendously. She once told my wife that the Christmas lights that people turned on caused everyone's power bills to go up. After her passing we found a sizable amount of money in a lock box under her bed, enough to more than pay for her funeral expenses. She possibly didn't trust banks because some in her generation were victims of monetary losses due to banks foreclosing during the depression. She was a very modest person that had the old ways of being very critical of such things as improper attire on other women or the more liberal television programing of the modern day. I can't imagine what she would say about the way it has digressed at this point.
There were so many ways about her that were passed on down to my mother. In so many ways they were alike. The one thing that my mother didn't inherit was being able to keep her good mind to an older age. Grandmother Mangrum was very sharp and alert until she died at 91. Mother developed dementia and died at 79. My wife and I affectionately reminisce about the unusual ways of both my grandmother and mother to this day because they both could espouse some of the most hilarious things, all the time being serious in their minds. My grandmother, most especially, came from a very different age than we did and was very vocal about her opinion of things. I miss them both and think of them often as I am confronted with changes in society that are getting almost too much for me to handle.
