For most of us, J. Ann Osborne was there from the moment we were born. She taught us so many things, she celebrated our successes, held us when we cried and she loved all of us unconditionally. While a life without her seems impossible. She has helped so many of us become the people that we are today and the family that we are today, She created a bond between us that will remain strong.

Ann was preceded in death by her husband, Billy C. Osborne; daughter, Janet A. Osborne; and parents, Fred Mynhier and Hesta Kelly.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Margaret Ives, Carrie Howell, Kelly Howard, Michael Osborne, and Billy Osborne; grandchildren, Tracy Osborne, Mark Daly, Carly Daly, Michelle Osborne, Jon Booth, Daniel Osborne, Cory Osborne, David Osborne, Kenneth Howell, Gregory Howell, Katlyn Howell, Thomas Thacker, Stephanie Hale, Megan Osborne, and Ryan Leonhart; 25 great grandchildren; 7 great, great grandchildren; and 1 on the way!

Please join us to acknowledge and appreciate the matriarch who influenced our family in ways that will cross over to all future generations.

I’m sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. I have good memories of her and Bill coming to Marie and Walters with you kids when you all were young.
She was always good to me. Such a beautiful and sweet lady.
My heartfelt condolences to all the family.
Prayers for comfort and peace.

These were shared during her service in Florida.
Carrie: I love you mom I can't believe I’m never going to see you again. I know you're with daddy and I can picture you young and in your tight dress dancing with the most handsome man ever. Please give him a kiss for me
Courtenay Penick- She was one of my favorite great aunts. I've nothing but great memories of her. She always respected my opinions, even if we differed, and I always appreciated that.
Carly: When my boys were young, I asked Anna what the words were (I had been faking it with them) to the chocolate ice cream cone song. She told me that she wouldn’t teach me because then I wouldn’t need her. And she didn’t! When I had Tiff, I asked again and got the same reply. Then she pulled Tiff in her lap and sang it CLEARLY while eyeballing me. I memorized it that day. She sang it to my mom, my mom to me, me to my kids and now my grandbabies request it from me.

Erin- I’m not really sure what to say, all I can say is I love ya Annie. You could be a crabby lil ole lady but you were ours and ya damn well knew what you wanted couldn’t no one tell ya otherwise...I wonder where I got it from... I’m so glad I got to spend my adult years living closer to you and Kenzie got to meet her great great gramma. I promise I’ll try to make cornbread just how you like it (cause I got in trouble last time I didn’t do it right) and everytime I see a hummingbird I’ll tell it to send my Annie a lil message

Darlene: Short story long while I never made it to Annie's tea parties I do remember all the times I sat and drank coffee with her, on one occasion when she lived on Logan a coffee cup was carried home with me of course with the promise of it being returned.
