Annalie Mae (Follis) Greenlaw, of Ellsworth and Eastport at 75 years young, passed through the gates of heaven on October 22, 2022, to be with her Lord and Savior. She was born in Eastport on November 12, 1946, to William and Geraldine (Call) Follis. She was a wife, mother, and the happiest grandmother in the world.
She was predeceased by her adoring soulmate, Calvin Greenlaw, her son, Theodore Richard Greenlaw, her parents, William and Geraldine Follis, brothers, William S. Follis, III and Ronald Putman, niece Mariah Francis, and nephew, David Spear, many aunts and uncles, her brother and sisters-in-law and her best friend Stella Young.

Annalie was a member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Ellsworth. She was previously a member of the Perry bible Fellowship, Washington ST Baptist Church and the North Christian Church in Eastport.
She grew up and spent most of her life in Perry and Eastport but lived the past nine years in Ellsworth being an integral part of her grandchildren’s lives. She was educated and graduated from Shead Memorial High School in 1965 and later continued her education at the UMM graduating with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. She taught for 38 years in the Eastport, Perry, and Charlotte schools. She held multiple certifications. She absolutely loved teaching and adored all of her students.
At home, Annalie enjoyed reading, watching movies with the family, playing the Wii with her kids and grandkids, cooking, baking breads and desserts, making Christmas candies, sewing and crafts, and shopping with family and friends. She loved getting up every morning to do her makeup, find some fashionable clothes for the day, and added some sparkle and bling, saying “it makes me feel good.”
Annalie especially loved being Mom to her children; they were her pride and joy, Leigh, Rebecca, Andrew, and Suzy. She was also a mom to her students, families, and friend’s children. Then she was blessed with her two grandchildren, AJ and Kaiti and that pride she had with her children was expounded. She loved them with all her heart and soul. They were her most precious gift. Annalie also loved her two grand-puppies, Fundy Bay and Quoddy Bay, her big boy and baby.
Pastor Barry Blackstone will be officiating the service at the Bayside Cemetery in Eastport later. Date will be announced by family.
