Anita Kay Albright
March 10, 1951 ‒ September 15, 2021
Anita Kay Albright, loving known as Mouse by her family, died unexpectedly Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at Riverside Hospital following complications from a stroke. Anita was 70 years old and lived in Marion.
Anita was born, the youngest of six, in Martin, Kentucky on March 10, 1951 to the late Walker and Annie (Hamilton) Moore-Johnson. Anita graduated from McDowell High School in 1969.
Anita lived the majority of her adult life in Marion and worked for more than 30 years at Wyandot Popcorn. Having a servant’s heart, she dedicated her life to Genesis Church in Marion. She spent countless hours helping in the nursery and made sure the church was always spotless. She loved attending Bible Study or any Church gathering.
Anita always provided for others. She cared for her sisters while they were ill and was a caregiver for her nephew, J Christopher “Chris” McCloud. Additionally she made sure her husband Danny Albright Sr., whom she married March 25, 2005, had everything he needed.
Days spent with her daughters were a must; any chance the three had to go shopping and lunch in Columbus was sure to include laughter, love and a good bargain. In Anita’s free time, she spent time in her flower beds and vegetable garden and put together puzzles.
Anita will be missed by her husband, Danny Albright Sr., of Marion; daughters, Donna (Shane) Thacker of Marion and Annie (Chad) Stevens of Columbus; step-children, Eric Albright, Danny (Ruth) Albright Jr., and Angie (Shon) Albright Swartz; grandchildren, Kaitlyn (Chris) LeBlanc, Kendrah (Kole) Guthrie, Allison Lewis, Victoria Albright, Shona Swartz, Taylor Swartz, Darrien Albright, Hayden Albright, Zack Albright, and Aubrey Elswick; great-grandchildren, Christopher, Kayleigh, Kage, James, Blake, Sylvia, Kinslee, Brantlee, and Paislee; brothers, Clinton “Deaner” Moore and Danny “Scooter” Moore; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Anita was preceded in death by sisters, Rosalie “Purby” McCloud and Connie “Tinker” Haskell and brother, Harold Gene.
A funeral will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, Gunder/Hall Chapel on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 4 pm with Pastor Keith Irey officiating. Calling hours will follow the funeral until 7 pm. Burial will take place 10 am Thursday, September 23, 2021 at Glen Rest Cemetery in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
