Gone too soon — but her love lives on through you.

I remember walking into Ann's Kitchen to apply for a waitress job because I wasn't getting the hours I needed where I was working. I was hired and told I could have all the hours I wanted. I really enjoyed working for her. She was a good woman and a great friend. RIP Ann. And thanks for the cherished memories.

I first met Ann when I was 9 or 10. Her dad owned Snyder Oil Company, my dad drove a truck for him. Ann would let me sit in her office and wait on my dad to come back
Ann would feed me and talk to me. Ann was a very good lady. Later on in life she became my sister n law. Ann still kept in touch with me. She was the Aunt to my daughter Tonya Black. Ann will always be in my heart. Praying for the family. Ann is with God now and no more pain or sorrow. She's with her parents and other family that she loved that preceded her passing. God Bless you Ann.
