Miss Ann Cumberland Palmer, 70, of Meridian, MS, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 17, 2023 at Anderson Regional Hospital in Meridian after a lengthy illness.

Miss Ann was an enormous fan of Elvis Presley and an avid collector of Elvis items. Yet nothing could compare to her love for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were her greatest joys.

She is survived by her daughter, Lisa Palmer of Meridian; sisters Nita Moore (John) of Pelahatchie and Linda Glass of Meridian and brother James Cumberland (Jean) of Columbus; grandchildren Rayle Blakely (Chris) of Brandon and Justin Tumey of Meridian; and great-grandchildren Greysen Harper and Emmett Blakely of Brandon.
