Condolences left for Ann Spickard-Zankl:

    I only knew Ann from visiting my mother who lived across the street and the short visits we had at family gatherings.

    Even still, a tribute to the type of person she was, I have the pleasure of knowing her children who always show the deepest love for their families and respect for their friends. I see Guy’s support of my sister the most, but Ann’s daughter Gayla would bring my mother plants and Dan and Guy helping whenever there is a need. A true testament to the person Ann was.

    My deepest condolences to all the family. May God bless you all and be with you always.

    Guy, The last time we talked to Ann she didn't sound good. We were concerned about her. We'll always remember the good times we had with Ann and Ted. You and Doc Stubblefield even were at one of our fun nights at the Moose Lodge. Thanks for taking good care of her.
