As a young woman, Ann attended Univ. of Houston where she met, and later married, Walter E Rhoads. Ann loved being a mom, Mammaw, and Great Mammaw, social events, family gatherings, dining out, having friends stop by, and taking care of her dogs. She loved Cocker Spaniels. And she loved her Scotch!

Ann M. Rhoads went to rest peacefully on the 27th of April 2017. She was in the warm care of her family in her home with her loving dog until the moment that she passed.

As a young woman, Ann attended Univ. of Houston where she met, and later married, Walter E Rhoads. Ann loved being a mom, Mammaw, and Great Mammaw, social events, family gatherings, dining out, having friends stop by, and taking care of her dogs. She loved Cocker Spaniels. And she loved her Scotch!

Born April 2, 1922 in Bay City, TX, Ann lived an extraordinary life. By the age of 95, Ann lived thru a World War, the Vietnam War, a Great Depression, and 17 Presidents. She was responsible for three generations of family, saw more modern day inventions than most of her existing family can remember; and has been here for the entire life of the Astrodome, rarely missing an Astros game there for over 25 years. Mezzanine level season tickets were awesome, and if you never went to a game with her, and if you don't remember Jose Cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuz then it's tough to understand.

Throughout her life she gave a lot of herself. She was most proud of her long time association with the San Jacinto Girl Scouts, mentoring countless girls and young women where she was known as 'Copperhead.' That and her ability to charm everyone she knew into buying more Stanley Home products and Girl Scout cookies than anyone could possible use or eat! Later, playing golf at Braeburn Country Club gave her a renewed appreciation for life.

What a wonderful and beautiful part of our lives you were. We will miss you and never forget all that you taught us. You will always be in our hearts.

An only child, she was preceded in death by her mother Anna Lee Martin, her husband Walter E Rhoads, and her grandson Michael Keith Crabtree.

Those she leaves to cherish her memories are two daughters: Patty McDonald and husband Harry, Sheri Crabtree and husband Dennis: three grandchildren Carey Crabtree, Daniel Kievit and wife Deanna, Khristyon Musick Sr and wife Ashley: three great grandchildren Khristyon Musick Jr, Kaya Kievit, Korbyn Kievit.

The family will be present for visitation on Thursday May 4th from 6:00 until 8:00 PM at The Settegast-Kopf Co. at Sugar Creek, 15015 Southwest Frwy (Williams Trace exit). A funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, May 5, 2017 in the chapel of The Settegast-Kopf Co at Sugar Creek with Rev. Allen Owens officiating. Interment will follow at Memorial Oaks Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Dennis Crabtree, Jeff Crabtree, Daniel Kievit, Israeldivine Kuyinu, and Khristyon Musick Sr, and Bill Zeiner. In celebration of Ann's life, friends are welcome to gather at the family home following the service.
