Such a great loss to her family, her community, her precinct, and the environmental movement. Ann was such a beautiful Soul, unfailingly kind, thoughtful  and supportive. Her convictions were deeply rooted in love for all of life, and she worked tirelessly to make the world a better place. Her family was her heart, and she delighted in her granddaughters. I worked with Ann for many years to help get out the vote in the Orange Grove Precinct. She served as Precinct Secretary for many years, and her dedication to register new voters and share information with existing voters was an inspiration to us all. Thank you, Ann, for all you have given to us over the years. You have touched so many people, and our lives are better for having known you.

I first met Ann in 1992 and worked with her for 20 years and the N.C. Natural Heritage Program. She was always kind and pleasant and very devoted to her work. She was my friend and I will miss her.

Life is to rich to sum up for anyone. Ann was gentle, kind, ready to laugh, in awe of the beauty around her. She deserved more time.

Ann was such a lovely person to know and work with. She touched so many of our lives with her warm and kind personality. During her 22 years working for conservation with North Carolina's Natural Heritage Program (1992-2014), Ann contributed to establishing nature preserves on more than 1,034,000 acres, including Registered Heritage Areas and Dedicated Nature Preserves. This testifies to her effectiveness in working with people. She had a great ability to work with field biologists to develop a proposal, and then negotiate with external partners to establish nature preserves on many of the most important conservation lands in North Carolina. Her work included places like Nags Head Woods and Kitty Hawk Woods at the coast, Eno River State Park and Umstead Park in the Piedmont, and Mount Mitchell and Grandfather Mountain State Parks in the Mountains. Her  contributions for conservation will leave a lasting legacy for all of North Carolina.
