    Such a wonderful woman! She certainly was an excellent role model for everyone around her and especially for women on how to live a fulfilling life. I was extremely fond of her and I offer her family my condolences.

    Sooooooo many memories of fun times working with Ann at the News Depot. I always admired how strong she was back then and through the years she just kept on going like the energizer bunnyl Amazing long life she had! Sweet, kind, funny and we could even get into political discussions that we didn’t see eye to eye on. You all must have so many woderful memories that will hopefully give you peace during this diffiult time. It will be an adjustment for sure. So glad to had her friendship as a part of my life. Rest in peace Ann. May God bless all the family and confort each and every one of you!

    To Joyce and family, our condolences at the loss of your mom. You took such good care of her! I remember seeing you with her at the bank, on her front porch, and bringing her to church every week. So many memories for you to cherish. We are out of the country right now so won’t be able to be at the funeral. Take care.

    I first met Ann (introduced to me as “Nunny”) when I was living in Alaska and she came to visit her grandson – a friend of mine. I was immediately drawn to her warm and kind spirit and feisty personality. Each subsequent encounter was just as lovely. I was amazed at how independent, strong and loving she was. Her family cherished her greatly and the love they shared was infectious. I will miss her and will be thinking of you all (Joyce, Mike, Jeffrey, & Michael) as you mourn the loss of such a wonderful woman. Sending you all so much love and prayers for comfort <3

    To my cousins and families – we have lost a very loving part of our family with Ann’s passing. But, oh, what she has left for us! Always in our hearts we will feel her warmth, gentleness, and the feeling that she truly cared for each of us. RIP, sweet Ann.

    I’m greatly saddened to learn of Ann’s passing as I was hospitalized at the same time. She was a most gracious lady to invite me into her home on many occasions as a good friend of her late son, Larry, when we were schoolmates (1955-58) at St. Michael’s; and many years later when I visited her to relive those memories after I returned to make Greenville my home with my own family. Larry and I were fierce competitors against each other whether in Little League baseball, duck pin bowling at the Elks Club lanes, or just matching ping pong skill at the Recreation Center. I gave Ann a copy of my two novels. She thanked me and later gave me “rave reviews”. In turn, she gave me a photo taken on Easter Sunday, 1958, of me, Larry and Don. She commented, “We always wondered what happened to you.” I’m glad I returned to thank her for it.
    May God grant her the abundant joy that she gave to me and others who passed through her life.
