Anna Jane McMahan Sink

Published 12:03 pm Monday, January 22, 2024

It is with great sorrow that we announce that Anna Jane McMahan Sink of Mocksville, NC, traveled to her heavenly home on Friday, Jan. 19, 2024.

Born and raised in Davidson County NC, Jane had 64 years of wonderful marriage to Leroy Sink.

She was the picture-perfect southern woman blessed with four children as she and Leroy grew tobacco and later owned a dairy farm, and retired from Dillard’s Warehouse, all while devoting herself to making sure her family’s needs were taken care of by canning the vegetables grown from the family garden, mending clothes and sewing quilts.

She would show her love and find great joy in the big Sunday meals she prepared. Christmas and Easter were especially special to her, and the excitement of the family would be of the desserts that she baked. She had an enormous heart, and it didn’t take long to go from an acquaintance to a member of the family.

She was the family’s pillar of strength, hope, and love.  She was always waiting with a warm hug and shoulder to cry on when needed. She was an amazing, beautiful, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

Jane was preceded in death by: her parents, Elmer and Nona Myers McMahan; brothers and sisters, Odell McMahan, Myers McMahan and Joyce (Larry) Hanes.

Left to cherish her memory is: husband, Leroy Sink; children, JoAnna Sink of Sparta, Donna Sink (Johnny Werth) of Mocksville, Brian Sink and wife Cathy of Woodleaf and Eric Sink of Wytheville, Va.; grandchildren, Randy Sink, Nikki Carpenter, Jennifer Gholson, Terry Fields, Ashley Givens (Shawn), David Osborne (Gabi), and Makayla Sink; great-grandchildren, Kenzie, Haylee, Isabel, Abbigale, Mason, Jesse, Addison, Carson, Holden, Arabella, Kaylee, Elias, Emmalyn, Isaac and Tenleigh; her “adopted” son, Travis Roberts and wife Priscilla and their children Tye, Sammy, Stacy, George and Angus of Wythe Co, Va.

The family will receive friends on Jan. 24 from 1-2 p.m. at the Davie Funeral Home Chapel, with a Celebration of Life Memorial Service to follow at 2 p.m. Pastor Jimmy Money and Reid Hart will officiate.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association.

We at Davie Funeral Home are honored to be serving the Sink family. Online condolences: www.daviefuneralservice.com.
