I will always remember Ann with a beautiful smile on her face. When they coined the phrase "fun loving" it was all about Ann. John and I are so sorry to hear she lost her galant battle with cancer. Rest in the assurance that you will see her again...no cancer, no pain, no tears, only big hugs and smiles💐

We are so very sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special person. She had that "special smile" and warm heart. She was definitely a borrowed earth angel gone too soon.

Liz and Family, I know exactly how u are feeling right now. It's so painful to lose our Mothers. As was the case with my Mom, your Mom needed to be free of the pain and agony although they would've loved to be with us longer. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Liz. Cherish the memories and love you shared.🌺

Dear Liz and Dave

Words can not express the sadness we feel. Nothing is more painful in life than losing someone you dearly love.

When we think of your Mom, our first thoughts are of the many evenings sitting on the porch with Ann, Lori, Grandma and Pappy.

The memories are many and so precious to us.

Ann was always there for us girls in both good times and bad. She was a true friend!

In this life, we cross the paths of many people; however, we are truly blessed if we can count on one hand people like Ann. She was genuinely caring, loving....and so much fun.

Cherish the memories and be there for each other. She loved you dearly.

Hugs....Lisa and Tammy

Lisa Thrush

Very sorry to hear Ann lost her battle. She will be missed. She taught me every thing I knew on Masland's BOM system.You could always count on a smiling face from Ann.

Bob Arnold

I just heard of Ann's passing. So sorry for your loss. I worked with her at Masland/Lear. She was always smiling and could cheer anyone up,

Sue Morrow

Liz, you do not know me, but I have enjoyed your mother for many years. Our work friendship started in 1984. Our travel friendship started many years later. I so enjoyed the cruises we took with your mother, Mandy, Lyle, Deb and the last meeting we had with everyone in Rome which included her beloved Derrick. I just found of Ann's passing today and it saddens my heart to the depths. Your mother was a great joy to everyone she touched.
So very sorry for your loss Liz, know without a doubt you brought your mother great pride, you could see it on her face when she spoke of you,which was often.
I choose to believe my beautiful friend is surly on her next great travel adventure in life.
Again Liz, so sorry for your loss and prayers your heart is able to remember the joy your mother was to everyone (she wasn't giving h&#1 too :) ) and your heart soon becomes lighter.
