Anne Wiant, 87, wife of the late Thomas Wiant, went to be with her Lord and Saviour on Wednesday, August 9, 2023.
Born in Greenville, SC, she was the daughter of the late Floyd and Nell Julian Whitmire.
She was a member of Mauldin United Methodist Church.
Anne was very involved in the community where she met and fell in love with her fiancé Tom and followed him to Holland where they married in 1961. She loved traveling and was able to see the world with her family, while supporting her husband’s military career. Anne was very adventurous and loved taking long road trips to see what adventures she could find. One of her favorite places to visit was Strawberry Hill. Anne always looked forward to her annual girl’s trip with her mother, daughter, and sisters. She was a terrific hostess and enjoyed having her entire family at her home for holidays! Last but not least, Anne’s most cherished role was that of being a Granny who adored her grandchildren. She loved attending their sport events and staying connected with them while spoiling them rotten.
She is survived by her daughter, Janice W. Toney (David) ; son, Karl William Wiant (Kathy); grandchildren, Karl William, II (Rebecca), Kerry James Wiant (Tina Shannon), and Katelyn Wiant (Cashaul Elliott); twin sister, Jane Holder; sister, Dorothy Maskevich; and many loving nieces and nephews.
A visitation will be held Sunday, August 13, 2023 from 12:00 p.m. until 1:15 p.m. at Thomas McAfee Funeral Homes, Downtown followed by the Graveside Service at 2:00 p.m. Burial will be in Mauldin United Methodist Church Cemetery.
