I am so blessed to have had Ann in my life. I got to know Ann as I began my dental practice with her being my first dental assistant and then receptionist who loved and cared for my patients as much as I did. Ann was such a kind, loving person who always had a smile on her face. Her thoughtfulness of others and her faith in Christ is what I’ll remember the most about her. Since Ann retired years ago, she would never leave a dental checkup without giving me a big hug, something I always looked forward to. I know that Wesley and her family will miss her a great deal but surely know how blessed they have been to have Ann in their lives. We’ll all miss you Ann.

Ann was the most loving and caring woman I have ever had the pleasure to know. Her love of her children and grandchildren was her priority. I believe she was a rare person who had her faith and family as her first love. She will be truly missed. Rest in Peace good and faithful servant. 🙏🙏🙏

I am in shock as I know all of you must be. I just did her hair on Thursday, she looked wonderful as always. So many memories. We shared so much during the 35 years or so that I have done her hair. She loved her family so much, talked about you all and the grandchildren, pets etc all the time.. She loved life but is rejoicing in heaven now. She will definitely be missed. My deepest sympathy to you all. We will keep you in our prayers and pray for peace and comfort at this difficult time.

God bless you all,
