Miss Ann was such a sweet lady. She loved to laugh. She was a joy to be around. She is in heaven now with all of her loved ones having a good time singing and so happy. May God be with all the family at this time.,

Ann was a faithful member of the Church of the Nazarene, but it was not until we had an opportunity to go to a Layman's Retreat together that I truly understood the depth of this fine lady. She is not a complainer, and her health was challenged at that time. She saw everything with a half full glass, and if too serious she lightened everyone's load with a joke. She was truly a delightful and caring woman that will be missed by many.
