She was one of my closest friends, a remarkable lady with many accomplishments. She has and always will be tucked inside my heart. We went on many trips together which will always be remembered.

Dear sweet Ann. You are and always will be missed by the both of us. We were friends for many years doing many many things together. You're passing was a shock as we didn't realize how very sick you were. if I were to add all of the things that I remember about you I would have to write a book. I believe that you are now in heaven with your wonderful husband Mike and hope that you will pray for us as you spend the day with the Lord.

From Joan Kappelt Zalonis, daughter of Charles and Margaret (Welch) Kappelt:
I have memories of Ann from the time I was a little girl, at many picnics and family gatherings. She and my mother always had a lot to talk about and enjoyed many of the same activities, especially flower gardening and sewing. I remember Ann's voice and can picture her and Mike vividly, with my parents, usually with a beer in hand and smiles and kind words for us kids. She was a lovely woman.
