First, and foremost, let me offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Ann.

I shared many times with Ann over several years. These were fun times and certainly a part of my life. The shows, the music, the venues, the gatherings, the laughs, the conversations, etc. Thank YOU, Ann... you rock! Always.

I have so many great memories of Ann. She was so much fun to be around. We lost somebody special. I met her at the opening of The Lime Spider in downtown Akron and was lucky to be her friend for many years. All those shows and fun nights at the Lime Spider, happy hour at the Matinee(remember the time Chrissie Hynde came in and hung with us?), dancing at Thursdays, going to punk concerts, Wow! Rest in peace my friend.

A special smile, a special face, in my heart a special place! Memories are a gift to treasure, mine of you will last forever!

Ann was my best childhood friend for many years growing up in Shelmar. She truly meant the world to me as a teenager and even to this day my love for her has never changed. I will remember her all of my days!
My deepest sympathy to her parents, children, siblings and her husband! As I know your heart is breaking I will pray for each of you, that God may guide you through this difficult time, with comfort that only he can give. Much Love

Ann was always such a joy to be around. Her spunk, her smile, her fun and friendly manor will never be forgotten. We had so much fun together at the Lime Spider. That is where she got the nickname "Ann Spider." I know how much she loved her family and how much she meant to everyone who knew her. She will surely be greatly missed. Rest in peace dear friend. See you on the other side.

Ann fought ovarian cancer bravely for many years, and had Mike by her side with unlimited love and devotion.

My condolences to Mary and Robert on the loss of their daughter. Also, my heart is with her children Spencer, Jordan, and Te.

Veronica, Lincoln, and I will always be here for you all

My love and sympathy,
Melanie Vance

This is Jeff Kish, been friends with Spencer forever now, since 2007 give or take, and whenever I met his mom (Ann) she would always be so nice and love to talk. Over the last couple years I spent a lot more time with Spencer to help him emotionally with knowing that Ann wasnt doing too well. Id like keep him busy and help him overcome the most difficult thing in the world (losing a parent). I give my condolences and wish the best for your family. LOVE, JEFF KISH
