Celebrating the life of

Anne Druilhet Winters Bradley

July 30, 1942 - April 22, 2023

Anne Druilhet Winters Bradley



Anne Druilhet Winters Bradley passed away on April 22, 2023 at Memorial Health after a brief illness. She spent her final days surrounded by her loving family and friends.Anne was born on July 30, 1942 in Savannah, Georgia to Paul Anthony Winters, Sr. and Adeline Louisiana Grevemberg Winters. She attended both Saint Vincent’s Academy and Cathedral Day School while being raised on the Savannah Sugar Refinery in Port Wentworth, Georgia. After moving to Tampa, Florida, she graduated from high school at Sacred Heart Academy in 1960. She was a proud 1963 graduate of Saint Joseph’s School of Nursing and immediately began her nursing career at Saint Joseph’s Hospital. Anne married William Emmett Bradley, Jr. in May 1965.Throughout her professional life, she worked as a dedicated and respected Labor and Delivery nurse, bringing many a new life into this world. She retired from Saint Joseph’s Candler in 2008. 

She was predeceased by her husband, William Emmett Bradley, Jr. She is survived by her two sons, William Emmett Bradley, III (Catherine Mulligan), and James Anthony Bradley (Vicki Lane Aeger); two daughters Kathleen Marie Bradley McCarthy (Michael Thomas) and Margaret Louise Bradley (Blair Ryan and Khloe Grace Jesswein), all of Savannah. She is survived by her pride and joy of 8 beloved grandchildren: USAF Second Lieutenant William Emmett, IV and Adeline Agnes Bradley, Rebecca Catherine, James Anthony, Jr. and William Thomas Bradley, and Mary Margaret, Claire Anne, and Bridget Marie McCarthy. She is also survived by her three treasured brothers, Paul Anthony Winters, Jr., Arthur McAvoy Winters (Kathleen Eberhard), and Bartholomew Patrick Winters (Ellen Blumberg), as well as several cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Anne adored her many Winters, Grevemberg, Butler and Bradley aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, with whom she shared a love of sports, crabbing, fishing, and old Tybee. In her retirement years, she enjoyed traveling to Europe and Hawaii, in addition to exploring her heritage in Ireland and Alsace-Lorraine. On any given day, Anne could be found crushing the toughest crossword puzzle or longest suspense novel in record time. Probably while sipping a cosmopolitan, not at all distracted by the host of grandchildren or dogs trying to sit her in lap. Her spaghetti sauce and potato salad recipes are legendary. In fact, Anne Bradley’s potato salad has caused the one and only rift amongst her children during the trying times of planning her funeral arrangements. Two siblings have voted for and two against sharing the recipe in her funeral program, though she swore documentation of this delicacy has never existed. 

 Pallbearers will be Matthew Arthur Winters, Ryan Joseph Winters, Reilly Marshall Winters, USAF Second Lieutenant William Emmett Bradley, IV, James Anthony, Bradley, Jr. and William Thomas Bradley. Honorary pallbearers are John Joseph McDermott, Patrick Aloysius McDermott and Michael Kevin McDermott.

Sending love, light, and prayers from the West to the sweet Bradley family (and their many relations). Mrs. Bradley was an absolute gem, never without a smile, and definitely never without an opinion (Haha!). The loving tributes from her children/grandchildren I have seen on social media not only warm my heart, but live as a testament of her strong bond with them. May her legacy live on in the many hearts of those who loved her. ...and should you find that elusive recipe for potato salad, I will happily but discreetly receive it.

Farewell to a sweet, lovely lady who we always enjoyed spending time with. Our sincere condolences to the family at her passing.

Thank you for sharing Ms Ann with us at Summer Breeze. She made my job a little more delightful everyday with her kind words, funny quips and genuine interest in my life and family. Her advice was always welcome and appreciated. (It was an added bonus hearing her stories of the Hagan family!) I will miss her. My prayers are with you all.

- Kelly Hagan, Savannah, Ga

I met Anne at St Joseph’s and worked with her until her retirement at Candler. She was a wonderful nurse, mentor and friend. She will be loved and fondly remembered by so many that knew her. Prayers for her family.

My cousin Anne was (I hate using that verb), so kind to me when I was 13 and stayed with her family for a good part of that summer. She had just graduated from high school and despite our age difference of 3 years, huge in teenage years, she included me in all her fun times with her friends. I was also inspired by her to go into Nursing. She was the epitome of a loving human being.

- Gayle Arberg, Marietta, GA

I am so sorry for your loss of your sweet Mother. She was a long time friend of the Hagan family. I am sure she was welcomed into heaven by her husband Billy and band of merry men welcoming her with Irish songs and bad jokes from Gerry, Eddie, Dennis et al.
