Ann was the eldest daughter of nine children from her parents Morticue and Lucille Brown of Hanging Rock, Ohio. Ann came to faith in Jesus Christ at age eight.
Ann attended College Park Baptist Church in Kingman. She knew Henry Ford Sr. as a child; he would buy soda pop and ice cream for all the local children.
Ann was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister and friend to all that knew her, and would help all who asked.
Her cooking was the best; you could not be on a diet around her cooking for long. She loved all of us for most of her 95 years.
