    We are truly saddened at the loss of Ann. When we first visited Eureka in ’01, Ann was very instrumental in our decision to move here. We knew she wouldn’t be here constantly, though she showed us how lovely this place is — just as she was so lovely herself. REALLY liked and enjoyed her. She will be greatly missed.

    I too grew up in Jonesborough, her mom was my history teacher, and our lives interwined on other occasions. In 1976 we became very good friends in our Lamaze class when Ann was expecting Mary Craig. Jerry became our family dentist, and we so enjoyed them. I will always remember Ann as one of the funniest, wittest, warm, generous, never-meet-a-stranger person whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of know. Mary Craig and Jocelyn, I know your loss is tremendous. I will be praying for your families. May the Peace which passes all understanding be yours.

    Mary Craig, I am so sorry that you have lost your mom and your children their grandmother. I knew you dad better than your mom, but they were both great people, and I know you miss them terribly. I hope that knowing your friends are thinking of you will be a comfort to you and your family. We pray for Ann and for you. Jim & Jane Moody
