Anna Marie Wamsley Cottis of Wintersville passed away December 16¸2021 at Valley Hospice. She is the wife of Stanley Cottis and the daughter of the late Ollen and Violet Aulet Wamsley. She was born March 13, 1939 in Steubenville. As a child she could be found running around the family owned Wamsley’s Restaurant Grocery Store/Truck Stop with her siblings the late Faith Mazik (George) of Mingo, Linda Fisher of South Carolina and Ollen Wamsley (Debra)of St. Clairsville. She graduated from Wintersville High School in 1957 where she was a cheerleader and member of the homecoming court. It was during her high school years that she met her husband Stanley and they were married for 62 years.
She was the proud mother of 3 sons and daughter-in-laws that she adored Stanley (Tara), Randy (Heather), Michael (Kendra) all of Wintersville. In addition she was Nanna to 7 beautiful grandchildren that were the light of her life Jen (Max) King of Toronto, Corey, Kelcie, Kody, Klay and Katie Cottis, step-grand child Tyler Truini (Kelsea) of California and 1 great grandchild Elyse King. In her adult years you could find her at a baseball field, softball field, football field, basketball court, volleyball court or watching a parade or play that her children and/or grandchildren were participating in.
She lived on their every hit, pitch, pass, catch, basket made, ace served, baton twirled and their important (and sometimes not so important) parts in plays. She was proud of all of their accomplishments and quietly was their biggest fan. She loved going for walks, hiking the mountains in the western United States, beautiful sunsets and most of all spending time with her family. She had a heart of gold and will remembered for her caring, compassionate and loving personality. Mom (Nanna) will never be forgotten - she will live in our hearts and be fondly remembered on a daily basis. We will be together again but until then we will try to live our best lives as she would want us to. We love you Mom (Nanna).
