Angels are rejoicing as Ann is dancing in heaven, but Ann will be missed here. Such a kind and giving and friendly person! We also remember the knock knock at the door as she entered . Ann was such a good friend and neighbor to us on Flint Steet as our boys were young and routy along with Donovan and Mclarey, as they asked if the Supplee Boy Kids could play. Ann devoted her life to her family and her friends. I believe life was made better for everyone who met her.
My prayers are with you Ashton, Beth, Marty and Emmie.

Wonderful memories of our years on Flint St. Ann was talented a good cook and a good friend for many years. We lost contact after we moved but I will always remember our fun times. God Bless you Ashton , Beth, Marty and Emma. I know you will miss her. Remember the good times.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. My heart and prayers go out to the entire family. Especially the ones I knew so well as a child on Flint. Emmie, Beth. Marti. Ashton and I with a silly handshake.
I remember so well the scores of times I would borrow the encyclopedias for school projects..and so many times "Aunt Ann" let me eat from her pantry..
I also remember fondly how Ann was so comfortable and close to our family that she would walk over and announce "knock-knock" as she was coming through the door. There was never a knock and wait to be invited in.. that's friendship!
All of my love to the family.
Bless you all.

Ashton, Billy Lide called and told me of Ann’s passing. So sorry for your loss.
It so hard to lose someone you love but take comfort in knowing Ann is whole and healthy with our Lord. Please tell your girls hello for me.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family.
