Mama June Shannon’s eldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, amassed a small fortune for herself years after leaving reality television. But how did she do it? Keep reading for details on Anna’s net worth and how she made money before her death in December 2023.

What Was Anna Cardwell’s Net Worth?

The former reality star was reportedly worth an estimated $1 million, per multiple outlets.

What Was Anna Cardwell’s Job?

In April 2020, the former reality star opened up about her job following a breast augmentation surgery. 

“I’m a stocker at Walmart. I basically lift up heavy stuff and put it on shelf, and reaching from the top shelf,” she told HollywoodLife at the time. “I went to work probably a week after being at home [from surgery]. I slept most of the time I was home, because I was off for a little while. Then, I went back to work.”

She went on to say that she “was scared to go to work,” because she still had stitches and was not fully healed. 

“I was scared that something’s going to pop out, but nothing did. I finally took my tape off, probably about a couple of weeks after being home,” she added. “My work knew about it. I told them exactly what was going on. They put me on small stuff, like cleaning the shelves off, binning everything.”

While it’s unclear how much Anna was making from her stock job, according to Walmart’s corporate site, the average wage of an associate in Georgia is $15.95 per hour. 

It seems that in the years since, however, Anna had a career change. 

“Looking to trade or upgrade and just get something,” the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo alum wrote via Facebook in March 2022. “I will be your girl if you’re looking for pre-owned or brand spanking new.”

According to her unverified profile, Anna also worked as a saleswoman at Five Star Toyota of Milledgeville.  

What Happened to Anna Cardwell?

Anna was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma in January 2023. The following month she underwent her first round of chemotherapy, according to TMZ, who was first to report the news. 

According to the National Cancer Institute, adrenal carcinoma “is a rare disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the outer layer of the adrenal gland.”

Nearly one year later, Anna’s family shared the tragic news of her death on December 9, 2023.

“With the breaking heart, we are announcing that [Anna] is no longer with us,” Mama June wrote on Instagram on December 10. “She passed away in my home last night peacefully at 11:12 PM. She gave one hell of a fight for 10 months. She passed away with her family around her. We will be updating y’all with more information as we get it today. We love y’all and continued prayers and thoughts for our family [during] this difficult time.”
