Anna Lee Toomey, 83

Anna Lee Toomey, 83, of Gumboro, Del., passed away peacefully in the care and comfort of her family and the staff of the Delaware Hospice Center. Toomey was born in Grundy, Va., on May 1, 1933, to the late Allen and Mary Anderson.

Toomey owned and operated her own poultry farm for many years before handing it off to her son, Randy. She loved puzzle books, find-a-word and crossword. She enjoyed watching Joel Osteen, going out to eat and spending time with her family — especially her great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, Toomey was also preceded in death by her husband, Randall William Toomey; a son, Randy Toomey; a daughter, Pamela McGinnis; and five siblings. She is survived by two daughters, Debbie BeMiller and Brenda Toomey, both of Gumboro; seven grandchildren, Brandy Toomey, Lynn BeMiller, Billy BeMiller, Destiny Kuhn, Randi Carlin, Dale Toomey and Anna Kilgore; 13 great-grandchildren; and extended family members and friends.

A funeral service was scheduled for May 3, 2017, at the Watson Funeral Home, with burial at Carey’s Cemetery, both in Millsboro, Del. In lieu of flowers, the family suggested memorial donations to Delaware Hospice; 100 Patriots Way; Milford, DE 19963. Condolences may be sent online at
