She is also survived by three grandchildren, Amanda Corrigan (Eric), Ashley Elder (Ricky) and Jeremy Nugent, eight great-grandchildren, Gabrien Elder, Caleb Elder, Declan Elder, Scarlett Corrigan, Jasper Corrigan, Jet Corrigan, Sybil Corrigan, and Evie Ann Nugent.

Ann loved the Lord with all of her heart. She was very active in her church where she served for many years as a Sunday School teacher.  She also had a tremendous love for her family, and was happiest when spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her interests included traveling, reading, and cooking- for which she was well known. Ann would be described as a never- wavering Christian with a sweet disposition and a caring nature.
