Bill and Ann married in 1950 and moved to the ‘Good Omen’ Ranch near Arp. Bill and Ann spent the next 67 years raising a beautiful family, operating a dairy with Guernsey cattle, and raising chickens, pigs, Angus, Beef Master and Commercial cattle. They also grew grain, clover, hay and tomatoes. Annie will be remembered as a beloved member of Arp Emmanuel Baptist Church, member of Arp Garden Club and dedicated volunteer for Arp civic and school activities.
Ann grew up loving to ride horses, play the piano, read and dance. She also developed an artistic appreciation of the great masters and antiques, and was an amazing seamstress. She learned to be an incredible cook and hostess after marriage. Full time Mother and Homemaker, after their children began school she became a Teacher’s Aide at Arp ISD. Many past students still say she was the best. She learned the historical relevance of antique furniture and architecture and taught restoration of antiques at Kilgore College. Later she enjoyed working at Tyler Square Antiques selling antiques and getting to know others that appreciated their cultural and artistic significance. Ann was a wonderful, loving mother, wife and friend with a generous spirit and approached life with a unique sense of humor. She enjoyed sharing gifts with those less fortunate in a very private and humble way. She had a kind and gentle way and was precious.
