  1. I loved her so much. She was a special kind of lady, so many memories that we shared . Much love and hugs for her family and friends.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss. Ann & I have been friends for years. I knew her because she was a friend of my daddy’s, Cletus Duke! He knew everyone and it has flowed over on me. Ann was one of my favorite “Avon” customer’s and I always took time to visit with her. She will be love & missed by me & many others. My sympathy & prayers to all of you.

  3. I use to go to church with Ann in Carmi. She was always so happy to be at church. I loved listening to her stories and her blunt personality. Wonderful woman!
