The life of Ann Lee Cason began in South Georgia in a large Timber and Farming family of Dan J. and Annie Davis Lee of Ware County in the early 1920's.
She graduated from Wacona High School in Bickley, GA and married Quillian C. (QC) Cason in 1940, and after World War II moved to Columbus, GA, to raise their family. They had two children, a daughter Annette Cason Booth and a son, William (Billy) Daniel Cason. Grandchildren are Kim Booth of Jackson, GA, grandson Daniel Lee Cason, US AF, of Alpharetta, GA (wife Luci Joullian), granddaughter Robyn Cason of Atlanta, GA.
Ann was active in Columbus for more than 60 years. She retired from American Family Life Assurance Company (AFLAC) after many years of service during which she had been a service star employee in the 1980s. She was active in the Muskogee chapter of the American Business Women's Association (ABWA), was elected to various offices including past president. While serving ABWA, she obtained college scholarships for many young women in the area who became business leaders. She was selected as Muskogee chapter of the ABWA woman for the year 1972 and honored as an American leader in 1973 in Personalities of the South.
Ann enjoyed her life. Her activities were gardening, swimming, dancing at the Gallups Center for Seniors and clogging with Tanglefoot Cloggers. Her church, Saint Mark United Methodist was her daily inspiration. She led their fitness exercising for elderly members and friends, she sang in the choir and when choir robes were needed, she donated them. Local assisted living homes enjoyed visits by Ann and the Tanglefoot Cloggers to entertain them and choir singing was also done for special occasions.
Her last years of life are a tribute to her faith in God, her persistence to function in life in spite of old age, and her desire to live at home one day at a time.
In her last four months she came under the care of Glory Hospice and was a resident for one month at Brookside Glen Assisted Living. Her caregivers were excellent and treated her like a family member. Her spirit was still strong but her body was weak. She passed peacefully in her sleep Saturday morning. She will be missed by all who knew her- now she's gone home. Funeral details handled by Stiffler-Hamby for burial at Parkhill Cemetery on Wednesday 23rd August 2017. Visitation will be at 1:30 at Stiffler-Hamby on Macon Road, followed by funeral services at 3:00 pm. No graveside services. In Lieu of flowers, donations to St. Mark United Methodist Church will be welcomed.
