Ann and Jim had THE perfect marriage. They were married for over 46 years and their love was the sort of love most people only dream of having. They took care of each other, helped each other, and loved each other through sickness and in health, and stood together through every adversity and every wondrous event that happened in their lives. Ann and Jim and family are members of the Oak City Baptist Church in Seymour, TN, where they were baptized as a family by Pastor Chris Kendall, who has been a source of strength for the family during this difficult time. Generous, loving, and caring are only a few words to describe the person who was Ann Cate. She helped the less fortunate, she loved her family, and she loved and cared for all children. Go rest high on that mountain, precious lady. We know there was a joyous reunion with your loved ones in Heaven. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Seymour Volunteer Fire Department, Sevier County Ambulance Service and LeConte Medical Center.
