Condolence: Ann LOVED her/the Lord! She also loved her blood family, her professional family from Reed Junior High, caring neighbor family and anyone who was blessed to know her. It has been inspiring to hear of her faith through troubles that came her way. She was always positive--knew our purpose here was/is to share the Lord. I think the celebration that began when she arrived at her destination will continue, especially when others remember her.
Condolence: Ann was always like a big sister to me. She helped me through a lot of things, she gave me advice. When we were little Uncle Bert, Aunt Lillian and Ann would come to visit us in Oklahoma City and we would sit outside at night with all the other kids in the neighborhood and Anne would tell us ghost stories. I always loved going to Alva to see Grandma Groesbeck and all of the family and we always stayed at Aunt Lillian's house. I did not get to see her much in the past couple years but she will always be in my heart. I loved going to Colorado and we always stayed with Ann in her cabin. I will miss her so very much and am thankful she was my cousin and a part of my family. Love you Annie. I wrote this memory for her kids to share with them. Your mom was special and I know it is hurts right now. I will keep you all in my prayers and love you very much. JANELL HAWKINS IN MOORE, OK.
Condolence: I am saddened to share the loss of Ann Marie. I remember her as a beautiful, vibrant lady who certainly got the most out of life. She was a cousin of my mother, Laura Beagley Bliss. My prayers are with you all; cherish the wonderful memories!
