Her former classmates remained close friends and have traveled together, sharing many happy memories. After her first child Sherri entered school, she found her lifetime career in retail sales. Ann became a Buyer/Merchandise Manager for Belk Department Stores in Miami, Ok and Carthage, Mo. This opened the door for travel to many markets in several states. She continued her career with Hill’s of Miami and Read’s Ladies Stores as Manager. On her 40th birthday she became known as “Granny Golfer”. For love of the game, she and Pete developed great and long friendships. Her gold putter stands in the cabinet as a reminder of the “hole in one”, playing the Miami Golf and Country Club course. Ann was a member of All Saints’ Episcopal Church Miami. It was an honor serving as Altar Guild Directress, Vestry member and/or any other project as needed. Her faith in our Lord grew giving her peace and comfort. There will be a private family graveside at Ottawa Indian Cemetery. The family will plan a memorial service at a later date at All Saints Episcopal Church in Miami. The family has asked that memorial contributions be made to the All Saints’ Episcopal Church. Services have been placed in the care of Brown-Winters Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Miami. Friends and family may send the family notes of encouragement by viewing Mrs. Foster's Tribute Page at www.brown-winters.com.
