Ann loved her family and friends and enjoyed entertaining in her home. She loved to cook and was known for her organization and housekeeping. She enjoyed working in the yard with her husband and they always had a pretty yard. She loved teaching the little children in Sunday School and was proud when they could say their Bible verses.
The family is so appreciative of the love and care the staff of Golden Years Nursing Home and Liberty Hospice gave to Ann.

I met Mrs. Mills when she came to stay at our care facility. We would sit and talk and she loved to tell stories of when she and "Bugs" met, and how she loved having Denise come home from college with her friends. She also shared with me a quick way to make potato salad. She spent many moments sitting with me at the nurses station, and those times will be cherished. Mrs. Annie was much more than my patient, I like to think we became friends. And all the times we talked it was obvious that the 2 greatest loves of her life were her husband and her daughter. Even knowing her for such a short time, it was obvious that she was a beautiful person inside and out. She is missed by all of us at Golden Years, but we know she is at peace and singing with the Angels.
