The family would like to extend their heartfelt love and appreciation to her daily care providers, Sandy Pauli and Patricia Copeland. Also, they are grateful to Heartland Hospice Care and indebted to the guidance and support from Amy, Carol, Angie, Kayla, Nessa, Penny, and Nikki as well as their support staff. A special thank you to Travis and Kade of Alliance Medical Equipment Company for providing exceptional service. Lastly, a family hug to Mary Edens for walking alongside the family and offering bedside care.

Phil and I were so very sorry to learn of Ann's recent passing. So many fond memories of conversations I had with her while walking my dogs. She always asked about our children and families. I sure have missed seeing Jack in the mornings while walking the dogs as well. Our heartfelt condolences to your family as you remember the life of this wonderful woman.
