She was born on March 24, 1931, in Mercerville, Ohio, to the late Harlan and Hazel (Berry) Halley. Before moving to Kentucky, Ann attended First Church of the Nazarene in Springfield and was later baptized at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville. She loved the sunshine, working in her yard, attending to her flowers and decorating her home. Ann was a longtime cashier of Albers Supermarket on North Limestone Street where she formed many-many friendships.

Woodland; seven great grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and friends. She was also preceded in death by her siblings: Eugene Halley, Vic Halley, Lowell E.
