Ann attended Whitworth University, and earned a bachelor’s degree in home economics from San Jose State University. She was a homemaker and rancher.

Ann loved Jesus and served others with a great gift of hospitality. She was a participating member of Bible Study Fellowship for over 50 years. She will be remembered for her love of BSF and her good sense of humor.

Rejoice! She is with her savior, home with Jesus. She leaves behind her son William James; daughters Kathryn (Robert) Novasky and Jennifer Barker; 12 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren. Both husbands preceded her.
