Ann's love for the Lord was a guiding force in her life. She found solace and strength in her faith, always extending a helping hand to those in need. Her kindness knew no bounds.
One of Ann's greatest joys was tending to her garden. With her green thumb, she transformed her yard into a beautiful oasis of vibrant flowers. The sight of her floral beds brought smiles to the faces of all who were fortunate enough to see them.
In addition to nurturing nature's beauty, Ann also nurtured a deep love for sports. As an avid Golden State Warriors and Arkansas Razorback fan, she could often be found cheering passionately for her favorite teams. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and she inspired those around her with her unwavering support.
Beyond her hobbies, Ann possessed exceptional culinary skills. She had a talent for creating mouthwatering dishes that left everyone wanting more. Her lasagna was hailed as the best anyone had ever tasted, and her chocolate pies were simply divine. To ensure harmony during family gatherings, Ann lovingly prepared individual chocolate pies for each family member at Christmas time so that everyone could enjoy their own slice without any arguments.
