Ann loved the business world. She was one of the first women in the garbage industry having worked for Atlantic Waste in Baton Rouge and Waste Management in New Orleans. She owned her own consulting business "Focus" and taught "Personal Relationship" classes at Incline Village College in Incline Village, Nevada. Her interests included her family, poetry, painting, traveling in the motorhome and being at sea with Stephen when he was working on his ship, Ikabana flower arranging, and the Republican Women for Pro Choice. Ann never met a stranger on land, in the air or at sea. She enjoyed meeting and talking to others and her gift was leaving a smile on those people. We will miss her greatly.
