Ann (Edwards) Legge
May 22, 1947 ~ August 25, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old
Ann Legge, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away at the age of 76 on August 25, 2023, after a courageous battle with cancer. Her life was one filled with service and compassion for all she met, and a missionary spirit that burned within her ever since she discovered the gospel of Jesus Christ in her teenage years.
Ann was born the second of two girls to Thomas and Edna Edwards on May 22, 1947, in Cardiff, Wales. She spent her childhood in Wales and then moved to England when her father’s job changed. However, she never forgot her Welsh heritage. Its melodic language and verse were part of her identity. She would proudly sing, in her beautiful Welsh voice, “Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau” (the Welsh national anthem). Wales, with its green hills and valleys, was always her home. As Ann would often say, "Cymru am byth!"
She grew up loving animals and always surrounded herself with these special friends. Throughout her life, dogs and cats were ever present in the family home and were as cared for as any human in the house. After high school, Ann originally had desires to enter veterinary school, but God guided her down another path that led to her becoming a registered nurse. Over the years, she worked at various hospitals, caring for patients, and going above and beyond to make them feel loved and supported. She would often work the night shift at the hospital so she could be home during the day to care for her growing family. Even in her 70s, Ann continued to serve and love those around her, compassionately caring for patients who were in hospice care.
Ann met her future husband Jack on a blind date arranged by a friend. Amongst the fun of the waltzers, love struck and remained. Jack and Ann were married on December 6, 1969–a marriage and love that would span seven decades! Jack and Ann have seven children, one girl and six boys. Ann was a grandmother to twenty-four grandchildren, and a great-grandmother to three great-grandchildren. Although her family was spread over two continents, she had a gift for communication and was able to keep and maintain a close and loving relationship with all her family.
She also maintained a dear relationship with both of her parents throughout their lives and was a great support to her father after her mother suffered a debilitating stroke. Following her father’s death, Ann continued to care for her mother for years until her mother passed.
Ever serving those around them, Jack and Ann’s relationship has only deepened with time and circumstance. The time they spent serving together in the historic Salt Lake Temple was particularly sacred to them and allowed them to develop many enduring relationships. The example they have set for their children and grandchildren has been inspiring. Both Jack and Ann have the unwavering faith and assurance that the 53 married years spent on this earth are just the beginning; that their love will continue through eternity.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Edna Edwards, and daughter-in-law, Julie.
She is survived by her husband, Jack; daughter, Tiffany (Derek); sons, Warren (Julie), Tyrone (Cassandra), Bradford (Sarah), Matthew (Helen), Daniel (Elizabeth), and Benjamin (Sara); and sister, Lynda.
The Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 am, Saturday, September 2, 2023 in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints chapel, 11257 Temple Dr. Carmel, IN.
In her life, Ann supported many charities. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
