Ann Wasson, age 84, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home in Bonham. She was born on May 6, 1934 to William Hensley and Gracie E. Mullins Walters in Black Cat Thicket Community, just south of Wolfe City.
She married the love of her life, Charles Wasson, on January 30, 1954 in Wolfe City.
Ann was a feisty woman who worked as an adult probation officer and retired from Hunt County. Her family and friends never had to wonder what she was thinking or how she felt about them, because she made sure that she told them. Ann apparently had no secrets, so everyone knew exactly where they stood with her. She was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and always wore her Cowboys ear rings on game days.
Ann loved her music and she greatly enjoyed playing the piano. She was the pianist at Honey Creek Baptist Church for many years and brought joy to others every Sunday from her seat at the piano.
Ann enjoyed being well dressed, especially wearing her jewelry, diamonds and having her nails done.
For the last several years, she suffered through dialysis treatments and fought through the pain of her illness.
She is survived by her daughter Cathy Caldwell of Bonham, three grandchildren: Melissa Malone Stapleton and husband Carlon, Brandon Woodruff and wife Jill, and Greg Caldwell. She has five great grand-children: Jason Malone, Nick Malone, Lacy Malone, Taylor and Kinsly Woodruff, two great-great grandchildren: Kansas and Holden Malone. She is survived by two of her sisters: Midge Wood with husband Eddie and Elaine Gunnels, and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and son Alan.
The memorial service will be at First Baptist Church in Wolfe City at 2:30 P.M. Monday, July 2, 2018 with visitation one hour before. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Mt. Carmel Cemetery Association.
