My deepest sympathies to all the family. I’ve known Ann since my teenage years. Living down the street from Ann and Ken, I babysat their children, Jennifer and Andy. Even after we were all grown, I continued to visit them from time to time. Living on Burnt Cedar for so many years all the neighbors were a close knit bunch. My parents lived there for fifty years. Ann and Ken had a wonderful marriage and raised two great children. Ann will be missed by all who knew and loved her, but never forgotten. Rest In Peace my dear friend. You are now with Jesus and the love of your life, Ken.

I was blessed to have Ann as my big sister. She was a model wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. As a sister she was a rock and always lovingly encouraged me or suggested corrections in my life. Her faith in Jesus Christ was displayed in her daily walk In Christ and she was a great encouragement to me. She was a prayer warrior and I enjoyed our times of prayer together. It will be difficult not having her in my life, but I rejoice and celebrate her life. We were all enriched by knowing her and experiencing her love!!

Oh, Ann was my sister and friend. We shared good times together. We laughed and cried together Through the years she and Ken raised Jennifer and Andy with pride. Ken adored Ann and she felt the same about him. I have wonderful memories of my sister. Terry and I will love and miss her more than words can say. I love you my precious sister. Now there will be no more pain only Heaven

My prayers go to the family of dear Ann. Having grown up down the street, I will always remember how soft spoken Ann could be and quite firm simultaneously. Both my parents, now deceased, always thought Ann so kind and thoughtful. Such a loss for all of us. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel.
