We are saddened to of sweet Ann’s passing but also joyful knowing she is now home. Lots of special memories and people at our Rea Valley Church and certainly she was one of them!
I did not know Ann very well, just a short time through Rea Valley Baptist Church services, but I always felt a special love and kindness shining off of her. None of these condolences surprised me, it really sounds like Ann. What joy she is having now, forever and ever....my condolences to all the family and loved ones who miss her so dearly.
Ann became a wonderful friend as a co-worker at the shirt factory which was a long time ago. She was always positive and encouraging to me. Every time I have seen her since that time, she always smiled and talked about her grandchildren. You could always feel the love she had in her heart for her family and friends. This family was truly blessed by her presence and we all will miss her.
She will be missed. Prayers for her family and friends. Fly High, till we meet again my friend.
A friend to all and a special one to me. She is safely home now and one day we all will see her again .Love and prayers to all the family...
What a strong, loving woman. My dearest friend. Always with a smile and happiness in her heart. Terrific Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Loved her family and friends with all her heart and soul. Ann will certainly be missed by everyone. She’s safe now in God’s hands.
