Sara Annolene Bone Dally (Anne), 91, passed away peacefully with family in attendance at her farm near Social Circle, Georgia on February 5, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene Carroll Dally and by her daughter, Carolanne Dally. She is survived by her daughter, Margaret Dally Hubbard, son-in-law Joel Hubbard, granddaughters Dally Elizabeth Hubbard East (husband: Nicholas) and Margaret Anne Hubbard, and great-granddaughters Molly, Clare and Shea of Social Circle.
Anne was born on May 23, 1929, to Obadiah Amory (O.A.) and Reba Louise McCurdy Bone in Americus, Georgia and was raised on a farm near Leslie, Georgia. She graduated from Union High School before earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in music specializing in piano and choral work at The Georgia State Woman’s College in Valdosta, Georgia in 1950.
Her first job after college was teaching music at Social Circle High School and directing the First Baptist Church choir. She met her husband Gene Dally during that first year and they married June 30, 1951. They were inseparable until his death in 2000. She directed a men’s quartet at Social Circle High School who won first place in Georgia’s Literary Meet. She also directed the choir at First Baptist Church for thirteen years and sang with that choir for over sixty years.
Anne loved and served her family and First Baptist Church of Social Circle faithfully throughout her adult life. She loved fine music and art and delighted in restoring antiques and decorating her home inside and out. Her favorite flowers were tulips and peonies which, unfortunately, were also the favorite of the many deer inhabiting her hill. The hundreds of daffodils she planted in defiance of the deer will be a lasting memorial to her dedication to creating beautiful surroundings.
Her funeral is planned for 1:00 pm February 9, 2021, at the Tribble Chapel of First Baptist Church in Social Circle with visitation in the church lobby from 12:00-1:00 pm preceding the ceremony. Burial to follow at Social Circle Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial gifts be sent to the Social Circle Christian School, P.O. Box 357, Social Circle, GA 30025.
