Ann also worked at the family-owned Ludden’s Shoe Store for many years. Her spirit was felt (and heard) in various organizations, including the Lioness Club, where she found great joy in preparation for the annual Minstrel Shows. Her passion for service extended to BPOE 1495, and Gamma Phi Sorority, where she formed lasting connections as a life member. Maude may be best remembered by her notorious laugh.

Many special nieces and nephews whose lives were brightened by her warmth, wisdom, and affection.

Ann is also survived by her loving sister Regina McGinnis, Bob and Shirley Margeson and many special nieces and nephews.
