The Lord is my Shepherd;... Psalm 23, Always warmed her heart.

Ann will always be remembered for her beautiful smile “that could light up a room”

and her gentle personality; she loved being with people.

She warmed every heart, a life example, a blessing to all.

Her talents, spirit, caring devotion and love endeared her to family and dear friends.

Her light will never diminish; it will live in heaven and live in us all.


Ann loved mail; the family welcomes continued memories from all the hearts she touched.
