Ann was happiest when she was outside. She enjoyed being in the yard, whether to work in her garden or to watch after the chickens and cows. Ann could usually be found riding around the neighborhood on her golf cart.

Always with a positive outlook, Ann never met a stranger. Whether she had just been introduced to you or had known you all her life, Ann was determined to hold your hand. Her tender heart endeared her to everyone she came in contact with.

Ann deeply loved her family and friends. Their care and well-being were at the forefront of her life. Ann was truly a special mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. The light of her love will always shine brightly in our hearts.
