Ann was a strong woman who loved her family.  This lady enjoyed life through fashion, Western style books, movies, and music.  Ann will bring a keen sense of humor with her to heaven, and she will rejoice when she sees her favorite dogs because she knew they all go to Heaven too!  She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.


In closing, please enjoy a few scriptures her family holds close in their hearts ~


“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4


“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
