Annie was born November 23, 1926 to Joe Sefcik and Lydia (Surovik) Sefcik in Caldwell, Texas. She was a graduate of the Caldwell High School Class of 1944 and attended Bryan Business School. She worked for Southern States Life Insurance Co from 1949-1955.
She was a member of SPJST Lodge #88 and a member of Houston Brethren Church since 1950. She was christened and confirmed at New Tabor Brethren, where she was a member until 1955.
Annie was passionate about cooking, canning and her family. Her pickled squash was amazing and she loved being outside and gardening. She happily push-mowed her own yard until late into her 80’s. She was a devout Christian, and never forgot a birthday, and always gave that magic box as a present.
In September 1947 She met a handsome Marine at a local SPJST dance and on June 3, 1949 married the love of her life and was blessed to have celebrated 56 wonderful years together before Aaron was called home.
Annie was impassioned about helping others and especially her children; serving many years as Boy Scout den mother, school volunteer and church worker. Annie and Aaron both made sure that any child they knew in need always had Christmas presents, birthday gifts, etc. Her sharp memory lasted well until her last breath and she still mailed birthday cards to all she knew.
Annie was first and foremost a homemaker but also ran Aaron's home building business and worked part time for 10 years at TGY stores to acquire a retirement pension.
Annie was a perfectionist and immaculate housekeeper and if you needed something done, she acquired that task effortlessly and with perfection.
She was preceded by her parents; husband, Aaron McNair; daughter, Patricia Ann McNair; sister, Margaret Trull; and brothers, Albert Sefcik and Clarence Sefcik.
Annie is survived by sons and daughter-in-law, Michael Aaron & Kathy McNair of Cypress, Alan Lee McNair of Houston; daughter and son-in-law, JoAnn McNair Lindsey and Stephan Epperson of Tomball; sister-in-law, Nellie Lyons of Seabrook; grandchildren, Courtney Lyn McNair and husband Matthew Friddle, Taylor Ann McNair and numerous other family and friends.
Pallbearers will be James Trull, Clois Gunn, Stephan Epperson, Clarence Sefcik, Ronnie Hermann and Matthew Friddle.
Memorials are appreciated and may be made to the New Tabor Brethren Church.
