Ann K. Tennant, née Posey, 1936 ~ 2020, of Altamonte Springs, Florida, left this life on November 12th, 2020, to be united once again with her Heavenly Father, her Savior, Jesus Christ, loved ones she knew in this life, and countless generations of family from the past she will meet for the first time. She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Born on April 14th, 1936, in Warm Springs, GA, to James Robert Mabry Posey and Mary Lee Lavonia Posey, née Hunter, Ann was a spunky young lady, who loved her family dearly, and helped with the chores and raising of her younger siblings. She loved to sing gospel music, and for a time was featured with her brother, Johnny, on a local radio station on Sunday mornings.

Unable to finish high school, she earned her GED later in life. With increased determination and an insatiable desire to continue learning, she went on to earn an Associates Degree from Valencia Community College. Afterwards, she found success in real estate, and with an indomitable work ethic, earned the loyalty and respect of her customers and the local real estate community with whom she worked. Her greatest satisfaction was helping first time homebuyers realize their dream of home ownership. She was also a member of the National Association of Realtors.

She enjoyed working with crochet and ceramics. She loved fishing and, from time to time, would go crabbing with her family. Of course, she loved shopping and enjoyed bouncing from one garage sale to another, always hoping to be the first to find little treasures she could use (and at a great price). She was dyed in the wool frugal.

During some of the busiest times in her life, she still found time to provide compassionate service, especially to the elderly. One in particular was a friend of her mother’s, Mrs. Raines, who she would visit and care for in between her real estate responsibilities. Later, she would give the same love, attention, and uncompromised compassion in her mother’s time of need.

Ann is survived by her brothers George, Jim, Bobby, and Randy, along with her sisters, Betty, Mattie, and Joanne. Her children: Sherry (Steve), Ken (Toi), Mike (Mary), Angela, and Kenny. Her grandchildren: Rachel, Ben, Eddie, Jonathan, Jennifer, Ruth Ann, Stephen, and Reilly. Her great grandchildren: Jacob, Emma, Johnny, Lydia, and Charlie. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Mary Posey, her husband, Alvah, and her dear older brother, Johnny.

Family visitation will be held this Friday, November 20th, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friends visitation will go from 12:30 to 1:30. The funeral service and interment will occur at All Faiths Memorial Park, Prayer Garden 55 at 2 p.m.

In lieu of flowers we ask that you please make a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital In Memory of Ann K. Tennant. Thank you.

Ann was a lovely lady who lived in our neighborhood. I did not know her well but always admired her. She is surely dancing with her friends and family and most of all with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ now. She will be missed by those of us still here on earth but look forward to seeing her again. Our thoughts and prayers to the family on your loss. George and Linda Painton

I worked with Ann at Real Estate One in Longwood in the 80,s. We had a real estate office with a pool and we often, which was very unique, worked and played. Ann was a beautiful lady inside and out After we all retired, a group of us met for brunch once a month. Esma, Paula, Ardis, Reba, Ann and me. We laughed a lot and told funny stories. Just great fun! We will miss her so much.

My heart goes out to the family at this time of sadness.

With Deepest sympathy,
Jan Hall

Aunt Ann ... I remember staying with you, Uncle Al, and Angie while Kenny stayed with my family. You loved those garage sales. You had a quick breakfast for Angie and me to eat in the car because there was no time to lose by sitting down at the table. Once you bought a nice decoration for your home. You told us not to tell anyone how little you paid for it. When my family came to town, you showed it to them. The first words out of your mouth were the price you paid. Lol. You were so much fun to be around, beautiful always, and you loved people genuinely. I also remember your coming to Savannah’s funeral and taking me to Walmart. You didn’t yield at the roundabout and almost got us hit! You had me drive on the way back. Life with you was always a happy adventure. Hang on, I am coming when it’s my time. Until then, my heart will go on singing. I love you and will miss you so very much.

I was thinking back on the time we laughed so hard outside of 7-11 over "slurpee burpee". Your little fashionista, Emma, said you will stay in our hearts forever. Jacob said he loves you to Mars and back. You are so missed. We know you're singing and dancing around Heaven.

Ann loved this community on Wayne Ave & Main St. Her determination to see improvements by constantly contacting the city finally resulted in the paving of our streets after 3 years of persevering letter writing city fathers to take action. A dear neighbor. She will be missed.
Love & prayers of comfort to the family.

When my former husband, our son, and I moved to Sagewood Dr, we met Ann and Al and became fast friends. David was a toddler who adored her. She became my surrogate mom. We spent countless hours at her house and she treated us like family. ❤️ Eventually, we moved to Apopka and she and Al moved to Shadowbay. When I divorced, she sold me a townhouse right across the street from hers on Night Hawk Court. The friendship continued. I adored Ann. I can still hear her laugh to this day. At one point she and Al bought a house in Maitland. Ironically, my son and his wife bought a house two years ago down the street from Ann’s old house in Stonewood.
Unfortunately, we lost touch. 😢 But those memories are some of the best of my life.
