Three words to sum up her life might be: FAMILY, her number one priority, FOOD, a wonderful cook and baker who always shared abundantly of her offerings, and FRIENDS, of which she had many. Ann was noted for her lovely smile. May she rest in peace. Arrangements by Heinz Funeral Home, Inverness, FL. https://www.heinzfh.com
