Ann absolutely loved the Lord with all her heart and her faith was grounded in his promises. She served God and her church her entire life and lived everyday for the Lord. She was a faithful member of the Salem Baptist Church. Her arms and home were always open for anyone in need, family or friend. Next to the Lord, her family was the foundation of her life with her being the center. Ann loved her children and grandchildren unconditionally. She loved going to yard sales, family gatherings, and gospel singings. She especially enjoyed listening to The Singing Cookes, just one group of many. She was a member of the singing group, Gospel Inheritance. Spending many hours visiting friends and socializing was one of her favorite things to do. Ann dedicated most of her career to Bell School, where she served as a loving teacher’s aide, then later spending the remainder of her career as a dedicated employee at Facet Industries.
