Joyce Ann Wiles (Roberts), 74, born November 17, 1945 in Memphis, Texas, went to her forever home with Jesus, July 24, 2020, in Round Rock, Texas.

Known to most as “Ann”, she graduated from Borger High School in 1964 alongside her high school sweetheart, Michael Wiles, who she later married in 1967 at the First Presbyterian Church in Borger, Texas. She attended Frank Phillips Junior College while also working as a secretary at a local business.

After relocating to Round Rock, Texas in the 1970s, Ann was active in her church including a leadership role in Bible Study Fellowship. She and Mike proudly raised four children: David, Todd, Tara (Doleshal), and Dara (McDougle). While the kids were growing up she volunteered at their schools and was active as a Bible Study Fellowship Leader. She cooked for the kids at retreats and camps for many years at Twin Oaks Ranch in Buda, Texas. Recently, she enjoyed helping out with multiple ministries at the New Hope Bible Fellowship in Round Rock, Texas. She was also an active member in the Main Street Thread and Quilt Guild in Round Rock. Many of her quilts are used and treasured by her kids and grandkids.

Dear Mike,
Luis and I send you our sincerest prayers and condolences after we learned of Ann's death. We can imagine that this past week has been the most difficult one in your life. To lose a life partner, as Ann was to you, must be the hardest lesson in life to endure. Our thoughts and understanding are with you. As we are missionaries in the Dominican Republic, we were not able to visit with you frequently. But whenever we called you to plan a visit, first when I was single, and then when I was married to Luis, Ann would not approve of just a visit, but always included an elegant dinner or lunch to be included in our visit with you. Our visits, although infrequently, were a highlight of our time in Round Rock.
I hope that we will continue to stay in touch. We think so much of you and your example of what a true Christian is. You both radiated Christ's love for all people, as well as serving His kingdom in whatever was needed. May she now rest in the love of Christ and enjoy His presence. Much love to you and your family. Luis & Julie Añil

I will always remember the Bible studies you had in your home for us kids. I remember you listening to my problems and praying with me. Even though you were only in my life for a short time, you and your family made such a huge impact. Thank you, sweet Mrs. Wiles, and may you rest forever in the arms of God.

Ann was such a sweetheart. We attended the same church for awhile, and she was always serving and giving. My husband and I were both from other states, so we had no family in the area. She and Mike took us in for quite a few holiday meals. That meant a lot to us - to not be alone for the holidays.
Also, when my son was born, even after we weren't seeing her regularly, she spent a lot of time and effort to make an adorable appliqued quilt for him. We will always treasure it.
Mike and family, we're so sorry for your loss. I'm sure that losing Ann is leaving a huge empty place in your hearts. We're praying for God's comfort and peace for you.

I will remember Ann for her friendship and love to my parents, Ray and Joyce Wegner. She and Mike moved to Round Rock about the same time as my parents moved to Georgetown and have been faithful friends through the years. She and Mike hosted the Bible Study my dad led for many years. She shined in showing hospitality. Mike and Ann were so supportive of my parents and our family. Most recently, they stayed the whole day at the hospital when my mom had surgery, sitting with my dad. They attended my brother’s wedding and mine as well. Ann will be greatly missed. Mike and family, the Wegner family loves you and will be praying for God’s abiding presence and comfort to be very real during the coming days. Love, Anne (Wegner) Shellhamer

Mike,

I know life won't be the same without Ann. Our sincere condolences, but we celebrate that she is with Jesus now.

I remember helping Ann cook once at Twin Oaks Ranch. I don't think I have ever worked that hard in my life. Ann was amazing. She never got tired or complained. It was a lot of fun and such a pleasure to work alongside her.

I also remember the many times we had dinner or gatherings in your home. She taught me the meaning of hospitality.

Blessings to the entire family,
Frank and Sue Dolifka

Memories...Good days at Sam Houston Junior High and Borger High. Met again later in life. Mike and I fished a lot so I enjoyed her hospitality, especially her cookies. Had trips to Charleston and Ft. Lauderdale that I will always remember. We also had fun in Chicago. There are many other fond memories. Enjoy your rest my dear friend. Beverly and I will never forget you. Thanks for the cookie recipe.

So sorry to hear about Ann. She will be greatly missed. I was remembering all if the fun times we had at church, at your home and on Friday mornings when we would load up a car with a bunch of gals and go to Garage sales. Love you all♡♡♡

I remember when I first started High School, Mom always made sure I was up and fed an amazing breakfast before soccer practice. Soccer practice started at 7:30am so that meant she had to get up at 6. She didn't just make me a bowl of cereal, no, she made biscuits and gravy!!! Each morning was that way. Something homemade. Nothing from a box. I had to turn in my meal plan to my health teacher at the end of that week. When she read the list she didnt believe me. I thought everyone was given homemade meals no matter what time you got up. That day I realized how special I was to have a mom who would cook for me. She also made sure we were all together at dinner to sit down and share a meal and check in. This taught me how important it was to come together. Not just for the food, because I can't cook anything like she can. But for the family time to be together. Thanks Mom and Dad for teaching us the value if family.

Dear Mike and family,
We are deeply saddened to hear of your beautiful and beloved wife Ann’s passing. I was privileged to sit under her bible studies at Hope and also enjoy the very best hugs 🤗 in the world. It wasn’t a Sunday without a hug from Ann. Ann possessed a genuineness of Christ’s love and she always made us feel seen, known and deeply loved. We are blessed to be her friends and watch her walk out her deep faith in God in all she did. The two of you gave the example of the most beautiful of marriages and it’s inspiring to see the tenderness and respect you both exhibited to each other Mike. As a women’s leader and teacher at Hope and BSF, there is hardly any area Ann did not selflessly serve in. What an elegant, godly, and lovely lady. She is with her Savior Jesus Christ and will be deeply missed by us all. Our deepest sympathies, love and prayers. Todd and Trish
