    A more saintly person I’ve never known. Her love for people, particularly babies and the downtrodden was unmatched. If there is a Heaven, she is there looking down on all of us with her kind smile. She is greatly missed.

    Sister Ann took care of me at St. Peter’s in Memphis. She was a mentor and I have great memories I was 3-5 years old.

    Sister Ann was such a Blessing in my life. I am grateful to God for her. I met her at Kosair Children’s hospital. She brought Jesus’s love and peace to me and so many. Until we meet again may God grant you rest and peace. I love you Sister Ann, you will be deeply missed. (My family and I were out of town, just caught up w/ all the newspapers and The Record to discover her passing)
