Ann worked as a waitress and later cleaning houses for most of her life. She was also a drummer in her earlier years.

In her later years she loved coloring and her weekly trips to Oscars for chicken fried steak. 

You would not find her without her nails done or pink lipstick. She loved all of her kids and grandkids deeply and always wanted pictures.

Ann is preceded in death by her husband Lloyd, mother Mae, father Curtis, sister Elaine and sister, June.

Ann is survived by daughters Terri Knight, Sandy Woods, Tina Ledesma (Ruben) and sons Chester Jackson (Annette), James Frazier (Donna), 11 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and other family and friends.
