When I heard of “Granny” transition to her everlasting life, I began to reflect on the many days she made me smile. She thought I was making her smile but it was the other way around. I met her when I relocated to Georgia and started working at Walgreens.
On January 31, 2020, she heard God call her home. I can hear in my spirit saying “it’s time for me to go” they will be alright. I made it over. I took my wings and followed the angel that came to get me. This is not good bye; it is I will be waiting for you when your times come.”
Family, sorry I could not make it to her home going celebration of life but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. So Today may you find COMFORT, for God is present to walk with you through, this difficult time of loss...
May you find PEACE, for God is present to care for your deepest need...
May you find HOPE, for God is present to assure you of His guidance in the days ahead.

I must say my cup runneth over with love and compassion I had for Ann. I knew her for almost 22 years. She was my mother in law for 20 of them years. We met back in March of 1998, and I married her son in February of 2000.
I learned to eat different foods by what she cooked in her kitchen. I have some favorites that she made, that I will carry with me.
We had plenty of talks around the dining room table about all kinds of things. In the five years that I lived with her, and when she got ill, she called me her personal shopper. I had my list of items she needed and any coupons she might of had. Sometimes she would leave me text message when I was at work to pick up something at the store when I got off work. At times, she let me use her car(even though I had my own), and she would say, “ mine has a handicap tag on it and you can park up front”. I would laugh and say “ I’m good I can always take mine. “ She would then tell me, “ No, it’s okay take mine, because with my car you get special privileges.” I would always go ahead follow her instructions like she told me.
Around holidays, and special occasions she was always wanting to cook and prepare food, and make extra trips to the store to always make sure that she had everything she needed. If there was something that she forgot, she would always send her son and I back to the store to pick it up just so she would have it. Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, her son and I, would spend time with her and my father in law before heading off to visit with my family.
She taught me a lot, she told me she loved me, and she always told me thank you every time I would do something for her. She will be dearly missed and loved. Rest In Peace Ann, walk and run around up there in Heaven.
Your loving daughter in law,

Our sweet Ann, I can not begin to express how much she will be missed. She was the perfect mother in law. She treated me as her own, she was always there to listen and give her own thoughts about things (if you wanted to hear it or not). she was always excited to share her recipes with the grandchildren. Ann just loved being in the kitchen, especially if it meant she could use that time as a teaching moment, Anyone that knew Ann...knew She loved to cook.
Ann never missed a birthday or holiday..in the 14 years that I've known her ,for every holiday, birthday, event or occasion, there was always a card in the mail. Every year for the holidays she baked and she would send boxes of her chex mix and varieties of fudge (per her son's request). During his deployments she would send boxes of home baked cookies for all the soldiers in his unit. Thats just who Ann was...thats what she loved to do. That kind of commitment takes a lot of love and passion and I always admired that about her. She was the definition of selfless. She helped anyone and everyone, if she could. She loved and lived for her family and she will certainly be missed by so many. May you rest in peace my sweet Mother-in-law

Ann Burrell was a loving sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was caring, fun, loving, hardheaded, and stubborn. She always had a way with words. She would always let people know she was there for them and she always saw the best in people. She loved to laugh and enjoy life no matter the circumstances. She also believed in always looking your best and never leaving the house without brushing your hair, which she made sure all of her children learned. We all learned many good values from nanny, because she was never afraid to speak her mind and tell you like it was, even if it hurt your feelings. Family was most important, an should always be there for one another. Nanny was and always will be a one of a kind woman. From Barbara Bridgers

How to express feelings from our hearts into words is never easy.
I met Ann in 1996. She welcomed me into her family with open arms. The following year Anne agreed to take care of wedding arrangements as well as catering , including the wedding and Grooms cake. ( German Chocolate) absolutely delicious !
Ann never failed to send texts or cards for special occasions.
She always treated me like family ( most of the time that was a good thing ... :)
I will miss her positive attitude that she displayed during her illness .. I would ask her “How are you?” Her reply was “never been better or as fine as wine.”
It’s hard to explain the feeling I have at this moment. I really don’t have words to describe how I feel inside...
To all my extended family , I can only say my heart is broken for all of YOU..
Words of comfort found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 come to mind ..
“3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts* us in all our trials* so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial* with the comfort that we receive from God..”
Please know, my love goes out to all of you who were a part of Ann’s life
She will be missed ...
Love David .
