Earlier in life, she was employed by American Color and Piper Aircraft.She was a member of the Blanchard Church of Christ in Blanchard.

Ann will forever leave a legacy of the importance of love and family. She was known as Grammy Sweets to her Grandchildren and loved cheering them on in their endeavors. To the basketball community, she was known as Mama P. because she treated everyone like they were her own. She cherished spending time with the Red Hats and cruising the world with her friends. Her greatest attribute was her devotion to the Lord.
