    Dr. Ann Evans was one of my most admired teachers in High School. She was a tough teacher, but she was fair and she knew how to have a good laugh! I would run into her while shopping here and there, and she always brought a smile to my face. I loved her upbeat personality and appreciated her intelligence. My parents Donn and Juanita Wimmer thought very highly of her as well. She was a good friend and will truly be missed.
