With Ann’s dedication and sacrifice, she chose to serve her family as a homemaker. She had a warmth and compassion for people she knew and even extended it to those she just met. Her smile and laughter brought light to those around her. Ann was known for her hospitality, whether cooking or baking for family and friends, and for welcoming extra company during holidays, including deer hunting season in Michigan. She wanted to make events ‘special’, from Sunday dinners to big parties. Her love for children was evident in the time and energy she invested in raising four daughters, who learned lessons about love, honesty and, of course, the art of cooking. She was creative in many areas. Crocheting blankets was a great pleasure for her and she enjoyed making them for her family and friends. Her cooking and serving skills were a boon to the Isabella Soup Kitchen. There she thrived serving and blessing countless others in our community.

With Ann’s servant heart, the family requests donations in her memory to the Great Lakes Caring Hospice or Isabella Soup Kitchen. We believe this would honor her life while serving others.
