What a wonderful supporter and companion for Jim in his great work at Frazer UMC and in his tireless work for youth in the River Region through the Optimist Club. I can easily imagine Ann now on Tee#1 at St. Andrews Golf Course waiting for Arnold Palmer to start their round.🙏

Incredible sweet memories of Miss Ann, as I worked for Col Sal when he was active duty AF at Maxwell back in the 1980's. Always a sweet loving smile and a positive word to say. And her prayers were so uplifting. She had a direct line to God in a special way. 🙏 Much love to the family, especially Col Sal. She'll always have a special place in my heart.❤
