From 1950 to 1964, the family lived in North Carolina and Florida and they moved to Virginia in 1964. Ann was a devoted homemaker, mother and wife. She was tireless in her support of her children as the consummate "Soccer Mom." She was an avid Washington Redskins fan. Ann completed her high school and college education training in Florida. She worked for Everhart Jewelers in Virginia and sought to become a certified gemologist. She retired to Florida in 1980, moved to Palm Springs, Calif., in 1997 and then Lake Havasu City, Ariz., in 1999 where she lived until 2005 when she returned to Florida to live with daughter Vickie.

A memorial service to celebrate Ann's life was held Jan. 16 at Celebration Christian Church, 1011 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach. The family suggests donations be made to the National Audubon Society.
