Margaret "Ann" Terrett, 78, passed away Feb. 21, 2013, at Meritus Medical Center near Hagerstown, Md.
She was born March 22, 1934, in Washington, D.C. to Hoomes T. and Margaret C. (Williams) Garner.
Ann grew up in Greenbelt, Md.
She graduated from Northwestern Senior High School, Hyattsville, Md., in 1953.
After high school, she worked for Dr.'s Minniberg and Rosenthal, Silver Spring, Md., and The Neurology Center, Chevy Chase, Md., as a receptionist.
She and her husband owned and operated Town Center Sub and Pizza in Boonsboro, Md., from 1986 to 1995.
Ann married Robert Logan Terrett in 1957 in Silver Spring. They were happily married for 55 years.
Ann was a member of Redland Community United Methodist Church, Homestead, Fla., and a former member of Salem United Methodist Church, Keedysville, Md.
Ann was an inspiration, a dream, an angel fallen from heaven. She was a loving and caring mother, wife, best friend, and the best grandmother a grandchild could ever hope for.
She enjoyed traveling the world with her loving husband; they unturned many a rock in their paths together.
She enjoyed camping with her family, while the children where young, and then later in life with her grandchildren.
She was a great friend, confidant, supporter, role-model; she was generous and self-less.
She was also an avid bingo player and avid movie goer.
Always wearing a smile, optimism was her way of life. Ann was a fighter in all aspects of life, she jumped over many hurdles to get where she wanted to be, and it was always done with grace. Ann had a purpose in this life, and she fulfilled it by all and any means.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Hoomes T. and Margaret C. (Williams) Garner; brother, Hoomes T. Garner; and sisters, Caroline V. Clark, Lillian Hoensee, Vera Mae Sowers, and Dawn J. Grover.
Ann is survived by her spouse, Robert, of Keedysville; her son, Robert "Bobby" (Darletta) Terrett of Keedysville; daughter, Susan (Darrell) Barnes of Middletown, Md.; her grandchildren, Cliffton Terrett, James, Kayla and Jennifer Barnes, and Lacy Neat; her great-grandchildren, Bronson Terrett, and Jaden and Katelinn Neat; her second adopted son, Michael Keefauver; and her beloved poodle, Precious.
