ANNE MISH Anne Everett Mish, 87, of Lexington died Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at her home. Born April 22, 1926, in Southampton County, she was a daughter of the late Caleb Roy Everett and Thelma Eley Everett. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert W. H. Mish Jr., and two brothers, C. Roy Everett and Joseph L. Everett. Surviving are her two sons, Robert W.H. Mish III of Lexington and Everett H. Mish and wife Bruce and their children Brucie and Robert of Manakin Sabot; and one sister, Winifred Everett Reid of Richmond. A lifelong horsewoman and educator, Mish was graduated with a bachelor 's degree from Mary Washington College and a master 's in education from the University of Virginia. She began teaching in 1947 at Southern Seminary and served the college until 1991. While her career in education was exemplary, her reputation in the world of horses was widely celebrated. The name Anne Mish and educational horsemanship are synonymous in this part of Virginia, primarily due to her presence as the driving force in developing a nationally renowned riding program at Southern Seminary. In 1966, the school honored Mish by placing her name on its new indoor riding arena, and in 1988, Mish was nominated to the Virginia Horse Shows Association Horsewoman of the Year. In 1997, she was inducted into the Southwest Hunter/Jumper Association 's Hall of Fame. For most of her life she showed and bred many equine champions. It has been said that as a small child she “climbed on a fence, got on the mule 's back and rode off. She has been riding ever since.” A graveside service was conducted Saturday, April 12, at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Middlebrook with Dr. William Klein officiating. Family and friends gathered at Little Acres following the service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Lexington Presbyterian Church, the Rockbridge Area Hospice or Bethel Presbyterian Church. Arrangements are by Harrison Funeral Home & Crematory.
