Ray and family, I feel so fortunate to have met and chatted with beautiful sweet Ann. Although our acquaintance was only a few days she left a spot on my heart. I am very sorry for your loss.

Sorry to learn the sad news of Ann’s passing. What a grand lady! The words written for her make it crystal clear the life so strong in love, care and service that she lived. I knew her at Oak Ridge High School where, on our Bowling Club team, she and sister Sue were experts at keeping all of us struggling pin boys in line and out of the gutter. I was also fortunate to share a bunch of classes with Ann who was smart as a whip and friendly as a puppy dog even while busting the top end out of the grading curve and breaking everyone’s heart. I’m also convinced she was an outright natural in mathematics. At the time we both had Mrs. Laycock, considered one of the very best teachers of Advanced Math in the state of Tennessee. Even if you didn’t enjoy the subject, you had to love her and the way she went about teaching in such a captivating and inspiring manner. Years later, I was greatly pleased to learn that Ann had been inspired enough shoot for her own career in teaching math. It’s not hard to tell she was an equally gifted and inspiring teacher like the one she’d known so many years before. Some of the very best folks on this earth are those who translate their own talents and the love and care they’ve been shown and then pass it along to others. Ann touched a lot of lives in a very special way. That’s just the way she was. My thoughts are with the family and close friends. May there always be comfort and warmth through her love smiling down. - Bob Stacy

I am so sad that Ann has left us. She exuded grace and charm. Whenever you were around Ann, you may not remember what was said, but you would definitely remember how wonderful you felt after talking to her. -Dawn Fortner

I was so sorry to hear about Ann. She & I shared a room for a while at the old high school. She was such a wonderful teacher and had a good relationship with students and teachers alike. However, it was a special pleasure to see her deal with unruly students. She would look up at them with a big smile & with that sweet southern drawl explain to them in no uncertain terms exactly why they were going to do exactly what she told them to do--immediately. And they would. Always made me laugh.
Her personality and sense of humor will be greatly missed.

I send my deepest sympathy. Ann was an excellent teacher that I had the opportunity to work with at L T Ball Middle School.
Ann was well liked by the students and respected by the faculty. Teachers like Ann are special.
