Memories Timeline


  1. Bob and family, Ann loved the Lord and was a true servant. She blessed my life. She talked the talk and walked the walk. God used her in a mighty way. I remember how much time she spent preparing those wonderful Sunday School lessons. She also told many interesting and funny stories using her life experiences as examples for us. We will miss her but we know that she is at peace in the arms of our Savior. I can imagine that she is getting the answers to all of those questions she planned to ask as soon as she got to heaven! May God bless and keep you.Robert and Vera Gords and Family

  2. My deepest sympathy for the loss of your dearly beloved one. When Jesus walked the earth he cured people and also resurrected loved ones back to life on earth such as Mary and Martha's brother, Lazarus… John 11:43,44. These same miracles will take place again, but on a much larger scale in the near future. Jesus promises, Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out -John 5:28, 29.

  3. We all (RHBC)loved Ann very much.Our thoughts and prayers are with you Bob and your family. There is no doubt she is thrilled to be with Jesus, bombarding Him with questions. :)She was a true blessing to all who have known and loved her through the years. We thank the Lord for allowing us to know her. She was and always will be our spiritual mentor. May the Lord Bless you and keep you all.
