I meant Ann several years ago when my husband and I moved to Pell City from California. I meant Ann through the Tablescapes event which benefited both the Christian Love Pantry, of which I am one of the Volunteer Coordinators, and Lakeside Hospice. I often saw Ann at church with Bob and they were always very friendly and welcoming to me and my husband. Ann will be greatly missed by all that knew her and she will be missed at this year's Tablescapes event on February 29th. Ann and her husband have been very important to the Pell City Community.

I ran into Ann in Wal-Mart a few years ago, she looked so familiar to me and we began talking. Well, she thought she knew me too, but she thought I was my sister Debbie. Once we figured out we knew each other through my parents business, there was laughter, smiles, and hugs. I was even able to get her photo. Su h a sweet, beautiful lady.
