  8. Fred, Misty, Krista and other family,
    Ann was a great friend at Augustan Academy. I was new to Canton and she, with her mom, dad and brothers, included me in things. Ann and I got to know each other well when we sang in the Academy choir and roomed together on choir tour. I remember her big smile!! Much later we connected again at SD synod assemblies. I value the encouragement she gave me in my faith journey.
    She had a great faith in Jesus and now she is with him, singing in heaven!
    May God’s love surround you at this time and give you all peace.
    Mary Holm Repp
