We have wonderful memories of Ann, especially her welcoming presence and contagious laugh. Mouth-watering smells were always coming from her kitchen and we looked forward to sharing those delicious meals. She was a charming lady who enjoyed life and we hope she still gets to dance to Lawrence Welk music. Our love and condolences to her family.

Ann was a beautiful sweet LADY. We enjoyed keeping her lawn looking great for her and Howard. Ann always made you smile and you always came away from her visits with a great big smile on your face.

What a beautiful woman Mrs. Ann was, inside and out. She loved her daughters (Kathy and Joan) so much as well as all her grand children and nieces and nephews. She had a mind of her own, and it was going to be done "her way" or not. She reminded me so much of my own mom. I always loved to hear her call me by my nick name "mater", it was just the way she would say it. Now she is in heaven arguing with God about how things are going to be done, "Mrs. Ann's way.
Praying for all the family. With much Love,
Ron & Debby (Mater) Prince.
