Following high school, Ann went to work for Cherokee Work Services and was a loyal employee for over 30 years . She enjoyed the companionship and friends she made while working there.

Ann enjoyed traveling, whether it be a trip around the block or across the country. She also enjoyed her many pets throughout the years, especially her dogs Snoopy and Nigel. She could be found almost every week enjoying a movie with her best friend Gloria. Ann had a love for people and never met a stranger.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I was so very fortunate to have been able to visit with Ann last March while I was home visiting. I gave Ann and my sister Gloria a ride to the movie and she was delightful as always. There are so many wonderful things about Ann, but the thing I will miss most is her contagious smile. I will always remember that smile when I think of her.

Linda and Kris and family,
My heart is heavy with the news of our beautiful Ann passing. Her love of people, pets, and children will always stay forever in my mind. Not to mention her love of music and her awesome voice. She came to both of my girls graduation parties and was such a part of the family. I will dearly miss having her friendship in my life! I have to believe she is happy tonight reuniting with her father. And the other vision I have is her dancing with Lola Mae, Elaine, and Sharon. You are all in my thoughts and I pray for the Lord's strength for each of you as you face the difficult days ahead. Please call on me if there is anything I can do. My deepest sympathy, Lynn
