So sorry about Ann. I was just a kid the 1st time her at moss and Hooper store. I thought she was the prettiest woman I had ever seen. Love sitting her at basketball games. She is missed.

Jenny Lynn and David, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I have so many childhood memories of Ann and Warren. She was always so full of charisma and spunk. Our community has lost another one of its legendary icons that touched so many of us in her 84 years. She will be missed.
