Ann was born in Conway, SC to Hoyt and Mary Skipper. She grew up in Conway, SC, and at the age 6 her family moved to Charleston, SC until she was a teenager.

She is survived by her husband, Frank and they were married 55 years.

While attending church at Garr Memorial Church on Tuckaseegee Rd. in Charlotte, NC she was involved in many women's ministries. They later sold their house in Charlotte, NC and felt the call to follow The Lord for a ministry in Holland. Frank and Ann both had ministries in Dutch and English in Holland.

Later, needing to care for family members, they returned to Charlotte, NC.

All of us at Carolina place are saddened by this loss!!! Ann was such a sweet lady! We had the privilege to become acquainted with Her and her husband as they walked daily and passed by the store. She always had a smile and kind words. She was truly an angel and will be greatly missed! I will always remember our conversations and the stories we shared of our lives. She was a great example of a Christian. I’m sure she is rejoicing with Christ ! Until we meet again my friend🙏🏻

We had the honor of knowing Ann & Frank and came to love them so much as they sat directly in front of us for the worship service at First Assembly of God in Rock Hill......a finer couple we have yet to meet and the Love of the Lord shown so brightly through them...they came to be quite fond of our grandson Aiden who also attends First Assembly....just so hard to believe she is gone on to be with the Lord as she was just at church Sunday and then Monday morning she went home to be with her Lord....little Ms. Ann, we are going to miss you so much but one day soon we will all be gathered around the throne of God and see all of our loved ones and friends who are waiting on us "to come up hither".

My dear friends. It is a time to say thank you Virginia Ann for having been so kind and loving not just to me your husband but to all who came your way. You have been an example to many people and touched their lives. And because of the love of Jesus Christ who lives in you. Many of persons can become that way when they follow the example you showed for us follow. We have learned a lot from. And the LORD wrap his arms around you and love you with an everlasting love. You will be missed but we have a great example for us to follow.
