AnnaJane was born on July 1, 1929, in Bethany, the daughter of Jess and Mabel (Rhodes) Dick. She married Wayne Tedrick on December 31, 1950, in Bethany. He preceded her in death on December 10, 1995.

AnnaJane was a devoted, loving mother of six children. Over the years, she enjoyed attending her great-grandchildren’s activities and ball games. AnnaJane spent many hours ironing clothes for others and also liked making ceramics at her home. One of her favorite sayings was “GO or EAT” and she would be in the car. She loved traveling with family and special friend, Pauline, no matter where it would take her. AnnaJane was also a member of the First Christian Church in Effingham.

AnnaJane is survived by her children, Joyce A. Tedrick and (Wayne Rothman), of Pepper Pike, OH; Kenneth W. (Janeen) Tedrick, of Shelbyville; Rebecca M. (Robert) Harris, of Altamont; Ted L. Tedrick and (Judy), of Altamont; Dave A. (Becky) Tedrick, of Teutopolis; and Lisa A. (Carl) Elliott, of Effingham; grandchildren, Matthew Tedrick, Christopher (Nikki) Tedrick, Amy Tedrick, Jesse (Leah) Tedrick, Anthony (Sonja) Tedrick, Brian (Amy) Tedrick, Adam (Jenna) Tedrick, and Chelsea Harris; 10 great-grandchildren; sisters, Marie Jackson, of Savanna; and Judy Ozee, of Sullivan; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Wayne; four brothers; two sisters; granddaughter, Debra Ann Tedrick; and her sweet kitty, “Sassy.”

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the nurses and CNAs at Lakeland Rehabilitation & Health Care Center for the care given to AnnaJane and also to HSHS St. Anthony’s Hospice.
