In her past time she enjoyed designing, setting up events, sewing, and making all things beautiful. She was a fashionista, Ann loved to shop at our local Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Roses department stores in search of the most fabulous things.
She was a mother figure with “Motherwit” and a pillar in the Glenwood, and Glen Hazel communities. She gave from her heart, her soul, and of her spirit. She was kind, always upbeat and positive. She had the most infectious laugh and down to earth personality. She would tell it like it is…in the sweetest way. She loved her family unconditionally and was a great provider. Ann was a very classy, God fearing women with a message from the Lord “Be sure to take GOD with you EVERYWHERE you go, baby!”
