She loved living in Grantsville and enjoyed the close-knit community. She also spent three years living in Germany and relished the opportunity to travel Europe and experience another part of the world. Ann met Carl Edward Frampton while they were working at the Tooele Army Depot and they were married on August 26, 1967 and later solemnized that marriage for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. Ann was the world’s best Nana to her ten grandchildren supporting them in anything they did. She has had much joy in her posterity. Ann accepted and loved people unconditionally, touching many lives through her service and kindness. She “adopted” many children and grandchildren throughout the years and loved them as her own. Ann cultivated many talents throughout her life; she enjoyed swimming, painting, sewing/quilting, traveling with her family and best friend Tammie Fackrell, and has an immense love for music even learning to play the piano later in life. Ann worked 28 years for the US government; when she retired in 2010, she was working for the Department of Agriculture (USDA-APHIS). Oh how she loved her job and her coworkers! She was eager to retell stories from conferences or from the trappers in the field. She considered all of her coworkers dear friends and was sad to say goodbye to them when she retired...but she was definitely excited to be retired! She wanted to spend more time with her family and have more time to do all the things she loved. She recently enjoyed celebrating her 50 year high school reunion. She considered it an incredible night with her dear friends catching up and reminiscing of days gone by. She had many callings throughout her life as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed the many years she served as a librarian and a youth teacher in the Grantsville 5th Ward. She also relished having her visiting and home teachers in her home. They were always her friends. She loved to travel. She especially enjoyed cruising and the chance to snorkel in the crystal clear Caribbean waters. She was always looking forward to her next trip. She’s now experiencing more beauty, peace, and tranquility than we can even imagine. We know we will be with our wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend once again and look forward to the stories she will have to share!
