    I am very sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. I remember my last visit with her several years ago. I have memories of her stopping by for a short visit at my mother’s house, Irma Green, when I was in town visiting mother. Both mother and daddy thought a lot of Jim and Ann when they moved next door many years ago. My deepest sympathy to the family!

    Condolences to Ann’s family. My Mother, SueRay, was a good friend and they attended Sunday School & church together at First Baptist for many years. I also became friends with First Baptist & our community. I use to see her at Creedmoor Drugs and always enjoyed talking to her. She was a very special lady.

    Robert so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family .

    The way I got to know Ann was as my husband and I were building our house; Ann was the first neighbor to greet us and offered the use of her phone until we had our own. Our friendship easily bloomed from there. Ann was never one to meet a stranger, just a friend she hadn’t met yet. Ann was a kind and down to earth person who was devoted to her faith and church. Ann was easy to love and over the years and many fond memories Ann became like a dear sister to me. Ann will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers go to the family during this difficult time.

    My condolences to Ann’s family.
    Ann was my mother Muriel Dann’s best friend when we lived back in Raleigh. They used to have so much fun together.
