  5. To the family of Ann Isbester,
    Ann was one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever known. I had the good luck to teach with Ann many years ago at Bradford El. We shared the same classroom and Rusty called us “cell mates.” I know that you will miss her so much as will so many others.

  6. Dear sweet Ann……How I will miss you! Ann always made everyone she met feel so special. I retired from Columbian Elementary 4 years ago and think about how Ann substituted for me…..never having to worry about my class when she was in charge. I will miss her warm hugs and sense of humor that helped me through some difficult moments. She amazed me!

  9. Heartbroken to say goodbye to one of the best people ever. I will miss our hugs in the halls of Heritage Elementary, visits to my class and observing the gentle way Ann connected with children. She was a true friend. I think she will live on as our Angel Annie and provide strength from above to all of those who serve children. I offer prayers and best wishes to the family she loved and the larger family that loved her. May Peace be with you soon.

  10. Dear sweet Aunt Annie, you will be greatly missed by all! One never felt so loved as when they went to visit Aunt Annie. She was so happy and thrilled to see you, that she made you feel very special and important. Rusty and Peggy, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you as you deal with this great loss. Your cousin, Lori
