Ann lived in Clio, IA until she was eight years old when her family moved to Roswell, NM where she spent the rest of her formative years. Ann graduated from Goddard High School in 1981. There she was active in cheerleading and gymnastics along with yearbook and the school newspaper.
Ann moved to Oklahoma City, OK in 1982 where she lived until her death on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 54 years of age.

Ann was a member of Mosaic United Methodist Church, played Bunco, and enjoyed her “First Wednesday Group” in her spare time. She loved music and was an avid concertgoer.
