Rowe (Joanne) and Sherry Blaylock; 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren; brother, Kenneth Martin; and a sister, Jean Albertson. Ann enjoyed her life as a homemaker. She took pride in caring for her family and doing all the things that mothers do. She gardened and canned her vegetables; sewed and baked, and surrounded her family with love. Ann was a leader among her Christian friends. She was always either in a prayer group or planning one. Her church family was just as important to her as her own family and she treated them as such.
