Ann Jenkins Gillespie

Ann Jenkins Gillespie, 65, wife of Randall (Randy) Houston Gillespie of Hollywood, SC, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, May 4, 2023. 

Born January 30, 1958, Ann was the daughter of Agnes Yates Stevens Jenkins, of Yonges Island, now residing in Brunswick, Ga., and the late Charles (Billy) William Jenkins, of Charleston, SC, and the sister to William (Billy) Stanyarne Jenkins (Debbie), currently of Lake City, Fl.

Ann is survived by her loving husband of 41 years; their two sons, Travis Randall Gillespie and Troy Stanyarne Stevens Gillespie; their grandsons, Trevor Houston Gillespie and Hank Stanyearn Stevens Petrone; and their granddaughters Addison Eileen Gillespie and Georgia Paige Gillespie.

Ann graduated from Merritt Island High School in 1976 and from Potomac Horse Center in 1978 with Horsemaster and Senior Instructor certificates. She earned an “A” rating in the U.S. Pony Club - the highest rating available - and won the 4H National Championship in 1976.

Ann was a Broker Associate with Agent Owned Realty Co. in the Referral Group, and enjoyed creating conservation easements, protecting land for horse riding and hunting as open space forever. These were incorporated into the developments of Raven’s Bluff, Martin’s Point, Whippoorwill Farms and Bulow Plantation.

Ann truly loved working with children of all ages, whether riding horses or playing and scoring baseball. Most importantly, Ann was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. While we miss her, we are so thankful Ann is finally out of pain and with Our Lord.

Ann’s funeral will be held at Christ St. Paul’s Church, where Ann was a member, on May 17, 2023 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Christ St. Paul’s Church at 4981 Chapel Road, Hollywood, SC, 29449, in Ann’s memory.
