Ann graduated from Timpson high school in 1958, becoming a nurse’s aide in various locations and later on becoming a site safety officer for Becon. In 1989 she married the love of her life, Bill Davis. The couple went on many adventures together across the United States and laid their roots in Timpson, Texas. Ann had many hobbies including family genealogy, gardening, and many kinds of needle work. Her biggest passion was family. From the binders full of family history records, to the annual “Davis Family Reunion”, she loved and cherished each and every one here today. But don’t let the sweet face fool you, Ann was a bundle of spunk and sass.

Don’t forget her four-legged friend, Buddy.
Although our hearts are filled with sorrow, let us remember the happy moments. All of the smiles and laughs shared. She is back again with her best friend, bantering, laughing, and dancing the days away. May her spirit lie within us all, for she will forever be our lily and Chantilly lace.
