On October 29, 2023, the Lord God called Mrs. Annie "Ann" Ward home to rest. She was born April 25, 1928 in Buena Vista, GA. and educated in the same community. She is the daughter of Charles and Elmon Wiley.  She had four siblings that preceded her in death, a sister, Mable Murray, brothers, Charlie, Ernest, and "Little Buddy."
