Ann loved to be with Herbie, her husband. Square dancing, watching him call the square dance patterns, and listening to him sing and play the guitar. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandma. One always enjoyed driving by their home to admire the flowers and her gentle distinctive touch to making her home a delight to behold. Mom always enjoyed helping Dad with the many Christmas lights and loved her two kitties Sassy & Mama.
