Rosser, Ann F. - Moody  
Ann F. Rosser, 74, of Moody, Alabama, died on Sunday, May 24 with her kids by her side. An illness may have taken her from us, but it was insignificant compared to the impact she had and the joy she brought to those who were truly blessed to know her. She was born January 30, 1941, in Brunswick, Maine and grew up on a farm in Durham with her two little brothers, Tom and Pete. Ann went to a one-room schoolhouse as a child; she knew how to milk a cow and drive a tractor. She attended the all-girls Catholic McCauley High School in Portland where she learned the social graces that were very much a part of who she was. She was a Renaissance woman who knew how to serve proper British tea. But if you took it with milk, she'd be just as likely to step out to the barn as she would to order some from Amazon. She left rural Maine because she wanted to see the world. Upon graduating from high school, she joined the Army where she met and married Bobby Moore. She gave birth to three sons and a daughter, raising them on military bases throughout the world. The Army was her calling. She had a successful career and received numerous awards and commendations. She was most proud of achieving the coveted Gold Badge in Army Recruiting and graduating from the Sergeant Major's Academy at Ft. Bliss, TX. She retired as a Master Sergeant in 1997. Following retirement, she used her GI Bill to enroll in college courses. It was common to see her in computer programming classes with people less than half her age. In a family of computer geeks, she was the matriarch. She is survived by her two sons Mike Moore and wife Becky of Appleton, WI; Steve (Tony) Moore and wife Catherine of Ambilly, France; her daughter Bim Arthun and husband Tim of Harrisburg, PA and Borel, Haiti; her daughter-in-law Susan Moore of Franklin, GA; brothers Tom Hunter and wife Marie of Ocean Isle, NC; Pete Hunter and wife Bonnie of Lisbon, ME; and beloved cat, Sammy. She was a "yucky gramma" to the loves of her life. She was incapable of calling them by their given names, nor could she understand how other grandparents thought they could possibly love their grandkids more than she loved hers. She will be greatly missed by Gaga (Jessica), Allie-cat (Alex), Ninabelle (Kristina), Timmy Swimmy Wimmy (Tim), Shawninator (Shawn), Jakearoo (Jacob), Andrew Pandrew (Andrew), and Max (Maxime); four great-grandsons, nieces, nephews, and countless friends who were like family. Among those closest to her were dear friends who helped care for her as she journeyed home: Brenda Bundy, Maggie Tucker, and Bev Dean. Ann was preceded in death by her beloved Himalayan cat, Yeti; her parents; her husband Larry who passed away on May 22, 2015; and her oldest son, Robert (Bob) Moore who passed away on November 7, 1999. Take care of her, Bob. The family is grateful to the caring and compassionate staff at Alabama Oncology, particularly Dr. Ruth Atkinson who helped her live far beyond her original prognosis, the nursing staff at Brookwood Medical Center, and the countless other doctors and nurses who walked this path with her. Thank you. Family was undoubtedly first, but there were several things that were also near and dear to Ann: cats, pink flamingos, the latest gadgets, Chinese food, tiramisu, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, yoga, constant learning, her Amazon Prime account… She refused to grow old and she defied birthdays. On her 30th, she protested by eating a case of Doritos. On her 60th, she went skydiving. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages you to do something that Ann would do. Whatever you choose, she would want you to make every second count. You are invited to join the family in celebrating Ann and Larry's lives on Friday, May 29, 2015 at the Kilgroe Funeral Home in Leeds. Visitation will be from 1:00 - 2:00 PM followed by the memorial service. Kilgroe Funeral Home in Leeds will direct.
