Annabelle’s greatest accomplishment was her faith and her love for her family. There was nothing that brought more happiness to her than gatherings with her large family, something that happened often and something she was very proud of. She surely instilled strong family values in her children, always making sure they got along and had utmost respect for each other. She was a spirited, fun, feisty and strong woman that loved to work in her gardens. Her multitudes of gardens overflowed with Hosta’s, ferns, hibiscus, peonies, lilies, begonias, sunflowers, mums and geraniums. Never a day went by that she wasn’t working somewhere in her gardens. Ann also had a talent for crafting which she passed on to her children. She dawdled in lots of different crafts but truly loved making flower arrangements. She made flower bouquets for many weddings over the years.
Prior to Jim’s death, Ann helped establish and operate the Whyle’s Sohio Service Station in Woodlawn. After Jim died, she owned and operated Heaven’s Cupboard at several locations in Hamilton Ohio for 24 years which brought her so much joy and pride.
In the most recent years Ann had two non-family care givers – sisters Betsy Wolf and Kathy Hasson. Betsy was with her the day before she passed. Betsy and Kathy had relatives that Ann grew up with and they spent much time talking about the good old days. Ann was very fond of both Betsy and Kathy.
