July 1, 1961 – May 11, 2019
FRISCO — Ann Marie Todd, 57, of Frisco, North Carolina passed away on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
She spent most of her adult life in Georgia where she was a respiratory therapist who worked primarily in Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care. In her youth, she was a professional firefighter and paramedic.
“Annie” (or “Rie” if you were family) loved the beach and all things saltwater. She was a surfer, beach walker, and a passionate Jimmy Buffet fan, a proud “Parrot Head” who knew every one of his songs by heart. She had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the US Space program history and was fascinated with the night skies here on the Island. Her greatest gift was her way with children. She could and would play hours at a time with them and no one could calm a hurt or sick child faster than she.
She is survived by her parents Dr. Thomas Todd and Mary Jane Todd, her sister Beth Midgett and brother in law Ted Midgett, her nephew Todd Midgett, and step-nephews Thad, Aaron, Timothy, and Thomas Midgett. She was preceded in death by her sister, Susan Lee Todd.
A celebration of life beach luau in Hatteras in her honor will be announced in the near future with a graveside service at her family graveyard at Todd’s Inheritance in Fort Howard, Maryland.
In lieu of flowers, the family would be honored by donations in her name to: NEST Network for Endangered Sea Turtles, PO Box 1073, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949 or Hatteras Island Rescue Squad, PO Box 639, Buxton, NC 27920.
