December 03, 1987 ‒ September 02, 2018
Annamarie Mary DeLong, age 30, passed away early Sunday morning, September 2, 2018, at the James Cancer Hospital in Columbus following an illness.
She was born December 3, 1987, to parents Edgar & Debra Ann (Weimer) DeLong in Mansfield, Ohio. Annamarie was baptized at St. Peter’s Parish in Mansfield and graduated high school in North Carolina where she participated in the ROTC program. She later earned her welding certification and was proud to be in a field where few women are represented. While looking for work as a welder, Annamarie was working as a cashier for the BP/7-Eleven gas station in Lexington.
Annamarie loved taking cars apart just to put them back together again. Even as a little girl she enjoyed music and her grandma remembers Annamarie dancing in her crib to the song “Freefalling” by Tom Petty. Her taste in music evolved into rock and metal. She was overjoyed to see American rapper Rittz in Cleveland just two days before her 30th birthday last December. He even pulled her up on stage and after the show gave her a t-shirt backstage!
It was hard to know when Annamarie was joking because she always kept a straight face and often teased her friends and family. She loved to make people laugh and was always the first to offer help when someone needed it. Above all else, she loved spending time with her son Nicholas. Together they went bowling, mini-golfing at the Infield, jumping at the trampoline park, and riding the carousel downtown.
She is survived by her six-year-old son Nicholas Bradley DeLong of Lexington; grandparents Gary & Annamarie Weimer of Lexington; uncles Gary Weimer and Robert Weimer both of Lexington; a cousin Angelica Weimer; parents Edgar & Debra DeLong of North Carolina; siblings Eddy DeLong, Stormy DeLong, and Zachary DeLong of North Carolina; along with many friends.
A memorial service honoring Annamarie’s life will be held 4pm Tuesday, September 11, 2018, in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. Celebrant Jerry Wilson will officiate and contributions to OSU Wexner Medical Center may be made at her service.
