Ms. Ann was such a pleasure to work with. We had many talks throughout the years. She would call me her "Fort Myer son" . I will always cherish those times. She was an amazing person as well as a caring and loving person. I will never forget Ms. Ann my "fort Myer mom"

Ann is and always will be one of my most favorite and special people. She always had a smile on her face and always greeted me with a big hug and kiss. She is God Mother to both of my kids and always provided them inspiration and great example. I always felt she and I had a special bond because of our love for the Redskins and of course John Riggins. One of many memories I'd like to share is Ann came to visit Dee and I at the beach and also to watch a Redskin game. During the game she was sitting in a rocker/recliner chair that she absolutely loved and said if we ever wanted to get rid of it she would buy it. I told she could have it if she promised to always watch the Redskins game sitting in this chair........well she promised and would call me occasionally during a game and say "Hey Jim I'm watching the game and sitting in my favorite chair!" and we both would have a good laugh.
She is definitely in Heaven and I know she will still be rooting for the Redskins and hopefully pull a few strings to get them back to being respectable again! God Bless You, with lots of love!!

I have many memories of my sister. My favorite is when she worked for Dr. Terrafranca. She loved that job! Many in my family were patients of his. I was very young at the time and was so comforting to me to know she would be there during my appointments. She always gave 100% at everything she did!!! Loved her family dearly and would do anything she could to help us!! Heaven has another angel. Will keep her in my heart forever!!!❤️

Aunt Ann was one of the best people that God put on this earth. Truly a loving, kind and giving human being beyond compare, she would give you the shirt off of her back literally. I am so heartbroken that she was taken so soon with this ruthless disease, but I know that she is now at ease and in a much better place with Him. She was so giving that she allowed my family to cohabit with her family while we were in transition from a job move with my Dad when we were younger. I remember the fun times fondly that I got to spend with her and uncle Chris and my fun cousins (except for shooting out a car window with a BB gun – a terrifying moment for a kid of 10 that I was at the time.) But, Aunt Ann, being herself put my heart at ease and made me realize that it was a mistake, yes, but not the end of the world.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going." ----John 14:1-4

Her room was prepared for her long ago in every kind gesture to relative, friend and stranger. RIP Aunt Ann – love you always.

Ann was my sister-in-law forever. My family was very fond of her and we always tried to include her in all important family events. All in my family remember her very caring personality. When my mother was quite ill she dropped everything and came to see her and care for her. How special....We share the same birthday but in different years. Like me she enjoyed working in her yard. Loved the Redskins and even went so far as to buy and drive a car in their traditional gold and burgundy ! A wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was a very special person who welcomed all with a smile and open arms. God called her up to soon but I know he is waiting for her with a smile and open arms. Farewell my friend until we meet again.

There are so many great memories about my sister Ann. When I was little she would give me piggy back rides for my candy ... tell all of us to sit and listen to her singing Songs by Loretta Lynn/Kitty Wells standing on the picnic table no less. Growing up if I had a problem of any kind, mom would say go see your sister Ann. She was my best friend, sister and second mother. She gave me a place to live after HS and always had my back. She is my daughters godmother and my sons adopted godmother. She will be in my heart forever, my thoughts and prayers ... just a one in a million sister. God bless you sis, love and hugs. 😘

My sister Ann was one of the sweetest sisters anyone could ever ask for. We spent so much time together with our young sons almost every weekend. We would pack up her car and head for Bethany Beach and stay all day and drive home that night. We would drag our food, cribs, drinks, towels and everything needed for the day. It is so sad how family can loose touch as the kids get older and our lives changed. I will love and miss you always.
