Annie was a beautiful person with a beautiful smile and beautiful soul. She loved her family above all. She always worked hard and was dedicated to her job. Never called out sick in nine years. Even through to the end Ann gave herself as an organ donor to save lives of strangers.

When you think of Ann, you think of green bean casserole cresent rolls, Chicago bears , Elvis and Boy George.

To some of us she was a a hero that we wanted to be like, or just be around. She will be truly missed by so many and will forever be in our hearts.
