Our sincere condolences to the family. We had the good pleasure to meet Ann as she attended our church regularly just prior to becoming limited to the nursing home. She was a lovely lady and a pleasure to chat with.

I loved having Ann in our Arts and Crafts class. I know what she loved to paint, how she took her coffee and what a beautiful Lady she was. I always said to her “pretty in pink” but she was beautiful always. Rest In Peace, Ann, I will miss you.
