  • Born in Shawnee in 1928, the only child of Oscar and Willa Snodgrass, Ann was working at the Pott. County Courthouse when her husband to be, Kent Green came home from the Korean Conflict. Ann and Kent moved first to Lawton and then to Ardmore where they made their home.
    Ann loved the work she did. She was very dedicated to her work. She laughed a lot. She had red hair, light skin and big brown eyes and a lovely smile. Ann worked all her life, until she was in her 70's. She never forgot anyones birthday. She was an organizer. This talent served her well in the 17 years she was Executive Director for United Way Southwestern District. She was also in International Assoc. of Administrative Assistants and on various boards around Ardmore. In a world sometimes described as being of "givers and takers", Ann was definitely a giver. She loved theater and often traveled to Dallas to plays.
    She had one child, Disa "Dee" Chambers; two nieces, Martha Lillard and Cindy McVey; and great-nieces and nephews still living.
    She was preceded in death by her parents, Willa Mae (Ivey) and Oscar Snodgrass; her husband, Kent Benjamin Green; her son-in-law, Keith Chambers; and nephew, Tom Lillard Jr.
    Now she is gone from earth and is free to explore the universes of eternity with her parents and Kent and many people she loved. I can see her joy at all the reunions and the vast expanse in which to love and learn with no work or pain.
    A graveside funeral will be at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Resthaven Cemetery in Shawnee. Walker Funeral Home is handling the services.
