All of her life, Ann had a passion for flowers, music, her family and her faith in God. She could take a bunch of flowers and make the most beautiful arrangement. She was also able to coax orchids into blooming a second time, and they were as beautiful as the original blooms. Ann had a beautiful singing voice. She was a favorite choir member and soloist at Shiloh Pentecostal Holiness Church for many years. She was also a talented beautician and owner of Regency Hair Design and Hairworx.
Ann was a loving, passionate wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She married the love of her life, Cecil Lemmons, and they had three children. Ann was a favorite playmate for her four great-grandchildren in recent years. They truly loved her and have enjoyed her reading and singing to them. They loved making forts in her living room and riding the golf cart around the yard.
Most important of all, Ann had a deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ. She served Him in the choir and with the Women’s Ministry for many years. She showed the love of Christ to all who knew her. As her family, we are grateful to know that she is safely with Jesus because of the grace and mercy He bestowed on us by the cross and resurrection.
The service will be live streamed on the Shiloh Pentecostal Holiness Church Facebook page.
