Rosa “Annette” Thompson Moore, 75, of Clarendon, passed into the healing arms of Jesus at Lower Cape Fear Life Care in Whiteville, NC on Thursday December 9, 2021 with her loving daughter Hinda by her side.
A private service will be held at a later date.
Annette was born July 8, 1946 in Stanly County to the late Jessie Samuel and Marjorie Grissom Thompson. She was a graduate of South Stanly High School and attended Pfeiffer College.
Annette lived a very interesting and colorful life. She was a “daddy’s girl” growing up and was always by his side everywhere he went. He loved to fish so she did too. He passed away when she was 16 years old and left her with time on her hands. She loved her mother but she wasn’t her daddy. So, she began to explore on her own. That’s when boys and “junkin” became her thing! She met Ronald Huneycutt sometime in her late high school career and they fell in love. They were married in June of 1966 in Norwood and shortly after moved to San Diego, California. That is when her love of flea markets and “junque” became very real. She also started having children while in California. Annette continued her love for flea markets all the way to the end. Always having something to sell or ready to go buy something. She had booths at the North Myrtle Beach Flea Market for over 30 years. She never met a stranger.
When her children were growing up, anyone was welcome to eat or even have a place at Christmas dinner if they were alone. As one of her long time friends recently said, “that’s just the kind of person she was.” She will be missed by so many, but her children and grandchildren will miss her the most.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by infant brother, William Thomas Thompson.
She is survived by her daughters, Hinda Huneycutt Vaughn(Beaver) of Ansonville, Josie Huneycutt Riggsbee(Sig.O.) of Morven and son, Chad Lee Huneycutt of Little River, SC; her grandchildren who lovingly called her Nana, Tyler Vaughn of Albemarle, Brianna Vaughn of Ansonville; Candi Riggsbee Watkins of Fargo, ND, Felicia Riggsbee of Rockingham, Ronald Riggsbee, C. J. Riggsbee, Madeson “Gage” Huneycutt and Merick “Gunner” Huneycutt and multiple great grandchildren and very special friends, Bob & Carol Lockwood.
