You don’t know me, but I was a teenage employee of the library (mid 70’s) and worked with Ann. When I saw her name and picture, there was a rush of warm memories. She was kind to me, and always smiling and pleasant to everyone. Please accept my condolences on your loss.

I am so sad to hear of Ann’s passing. I met her and I live in her old house on Big Bear Road. Sometimes I feel like her presence is there with me. She’s a very sweet lady! She will be missed by many!

I worked with Ann at the Fayette County Library. She was always kind and thinking of others. Ann made working fun, and she really enjoyed working in the children’s department. She was a great role model. My deepest condolences to her family.

I am so happy that I had the opportunity to share time with “GG” as we called her. GG is a very special lady to me, just as the rest of her family. I always loved hearing GG’s stories about her up bringing and how the world was in her time. I learned a lot from her. I will never forget you GG.

I worked with Ann many years ago at the Library. She taught me many things about the library and life in general. I always looked up to Ann, she was my "Work Grandma" and friend who kept me under her wing. I have many lasting, wonderful memories that I cherish.
Ann definitely earned her Angel Wings.......
The family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Such a sweet lady. I loved going to her house and seeing her violets. I believe she even gave me a few. I could never believe how many projects she put in Extension Homemakers. She would put nearly a 100 sewn items in every year. She will be missed by many.
