Obituary Condolences

HENDERSONVILLE--Ann Williamson passed peacefully on January 24, 2015 at Spring Arbor of Hendersonville.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1943, Ann graduated from Christ Hospital School of Nursing in Cincinnati and was a hospital psychiatric nurse for over thirty six years. She received a BA in English Literature from Western Michigan University, graduating near the top of her class. A prolific writer, concentrating mainly on poetry, she had three published books of poems to her credit as well as numerous works published in periodicals and small anthologies of poetry along with several awards for excellence in writing.
Always fond of her hometown, Ann loved her years spent on Lake Michigan from which she took much inspiration for her writing. With a brilliant mind and sense of creativity to match, Ann's writing explored many themes over her lifetime, the major ones being quantum physics and mathematics, Greek mythology (the Odyssey story from Penelope's viewpoint) and Goddess theology. Her first, yet unfinished novel, dealt with her devotion to all of her psychiatric patients. She loved writing using metaphors to "paint an image in her reader's mind with every word chosen."
On August 24, 1963, Ann married her high school sweetheart, Charles Williamson, and they moved to St. Joseph Michigan in 1967 where they spent the next thirty two years of their lives before retiring to the Hendersonville, North Carolina area in 1999.
A loving and devoted wife and mother, Ann leaves her husband of fifty one years, "Charlie", three sons: Charles of Noblesville, Indiana; Thomas of Coventry, Rhode Island and; Daniel of North Liberty, Iowa and three granddaughters and three grandsons.
Ann's life will be celebrated on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 2 PM at the Unitarian/Universalist Fellowship of Hendersonville, 2021 Kanuga Road, Hendersonville, North Carolina 28739. In lieu of flowers, the family asks consideration be given to a contribution to the Endowment Fund of the Fellowship, Ann's spiritual home or to Four Seasons Hospice of Hendersonville who, along with the staff of Spring Arbor, so lovingly cared for her in the last months of her life.
