Ann was a second mom to me as a child and dear friend to me over the past 20 years. She always looked beautiful on the outside and was even more beautiful on the inside. I will miss her...Melissa

Ann's death has left a deep chasm in the lives of her family and friends. Her gentle ways, her soft- spoken voice, her ability to put others ahead of herself, her unbounded love for her children, grandchildren was a "how to live" lesson for all of us. Her memorial service was reflective of her both visually in its beauty and in its simple form. Ann lived in a gracious and selfless way and will truly be missed by all who knew her. I will hold all those memories in my heart. Take care of each other and Buddy..........Barbara Harrison

I'll always have fond memories of your mother. Her warm smile, perfect make-up and hair and positive attitude always made me smile and she was such a joy to be around. Through the years, family was her focus and what she was proudest of -- her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her great happiness. Everyone who knew her will miss her. Love to you all.

A dear friend is gone but left me with wonderful memories. She was truly a person who loved her family and friends. Thoughtful,considerate and kind to all,hearing her being called Mom or Gran Ann made her day. Conversations or outings with friends to share our lives was a memorable time. Rest in peace sweet Ann!
