Ann, Ann, Ann! What can I say. I think of you all the time and always have. I will miss your shinning face and wonderful candor, but you are locked away in my heart for easy access xo

I was fortunate enough to have worked with her for many years. I want to quote some words from a song I heard which said, “It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you, it’s what you leave behind you when you go.” Ann has left me and many others with lasting good memories.
My most heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends.

Mrs. Yinger was a continual part of my childhood and always was a loving and positive presence in my life. My parents were close friends and were always happy to see Ann (and Bob) to socialize, discuss Hillsboro Shores or any number of other things. The cottage up at the lake was a great spot and every time I got to go, I was treated as one of the family. I only have great memories of doing things with you all.
Our thoughts are with all of you. She will be missed, she was a treasure.

Mrs. Yinger will always hold a special place in the hearts of our family and Jessica and Samantha. She truly exemplified the school motto at Christ Church School “Education With Love”.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Yinger family.
