I met Ann as a lot of people called her at Providence Baptist Church not long after I moved to the country. We immediately became friends after I joined the Sunday School that she was in. Over the years, she became like a mom to me. I say this because she was not a judgemental person, she was kind and understanding to everyone she met. She would correct me if I was wrong about something and next day was worried if she hurt my feelings. As you know she was a teacher and that followed her throughout her life. She was a precious Christian Classic Southern Belle. She taught me the country ways of living through canning salsa, pickles, and many more ways. She said that she had the best husband in the world and she did. She loved unconditionally. She loved my children and grandchildren. She would say, "tell them grannie Ann is coming over there and straighten them out if I didn't. My lasting memory of her will be of her standing on the porch in front of the gardenias blooming, telling her that I loved her, and she hugged and kissed me goodbye. Her smile, her precious sweet voice will be in my memories until I meet her again in heaven. Love you baby.

She was such a special lady, her and my mom worked for many years at Central Elementary School in Calhoun. She was always so sweet and friendly to me, everyone she met , even during her hardest times with her cancer. My mom and me spoke to her just a few months back at the doctors office, we were glad to see her and speak to her one last time. She will forever be remembered by the parents of the children she worked with every day. Our Family is sadden by her lost.
