Two weeks ago we lost a dear friend, mom, grandmother, sister, friend and teacher. Ann Faris died at home peacefully and unexpectedly. She is dearly missed and fondly remembered.
Ann is originally from Durango, Colorado and migrated to Virginia after college. She became a teacher and taught at Red Hill Elementary School. She did her career at the school and she made a huge impact on the children and families of our community. After retirement she continued to go back to Red Hill to read stories and volunteer.
Ann is the wife of Bob Faris, of 50 years. She is the mother of Courtney and Christie. She’s the grandmother of Damon. She’s also part of our Mooreland Baptist Church family and she’s been a mother, sister, and grandmother to all of us. She had a habit of making everyone part of our family. Mooreland is part of Ann’s family and we are better for it.
Ann was such a big part of our community and church that I have so many pictures of her from the past few years. Here’s a few of them.
Ann loved the color teal and is wearing Teal in all of the these pictures. She will be remembered as someone who never met a stranger, who loved everyone, and who loved all the children in her life.
