Ann Shafer, age 79, awoke in Heaven on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. She was born in Irving, Texas to Johnnie Pershing and Nelda Faye (Tidwell) Shafer on Tuesday, July 30, 1940. Ann was a giving soul, who loved the Lord and was always doing his work. She was a long-time member of Plymouth Park Baptist Church where she stayed actively involved helping in many different areas of the church. For many years she worked as a secretary in her Sunday School class, has helped and attended a home study church group, and many other activities involving her Sunday School church friends, sang in the choir and just a few years ago she helped the women’s group teach English to the Spanish speaking congregation. Outside of church, Ann’s favorite times where spent with her friends, family and beloved dog Presley. Anyone who met and knew Ann, remember her always smiling, and fondly remember her for having the greatest and most infectious smile. She was a graduate of the University of Texas in Dallas, where she received her bachelor’s degree of Science in Business Administration. Ann also enjoyed traveling, where she would use her passion for photography to document the places she had been.

Left to cherish her memory are her brother in law Chuck Hart; niece Susan Pigrenet and husband Toy; great nephew Blake Pigrenet and wife Kim; great nephew Brent Pigrenet; great niece Brittany Timmons and husband Blake; great nephew Chase Pigrenet along with numerous other great great nieces, nephews and other extended loving family and friends.

I am just hearing this morning that Ann Shafer, Atmos Retiree, passed away on September 24, 2019. I was stunned to learn this on April 3, 2020.

I had known Ann since 1970. We spent many years together working in Gas Supply at Lone Star Gas. For several years, she reported directly to me. Ann was keenly intelligent and an excellent worker. She went back to college and finished her bachelor degree many years before I did the same. She loved to travel and did so with her two best buddies from work, Betty Patterson and Jean Massengale. She loved her puppy dogs. In the early 70’s, our dog had half-poodle puppies and Ann adopted a little curly haired girl named Cindy. She had Cindy for almost 20 years before she passed away. I see from her obituary that she was survived by a pup named Presley. I sure hope Presley has found a great new home. I am sure that Ann’s beloved niece will have seen to that.

Ann never married but was extremely close to her sister Sue (who also worked at Lone Star Gas) and her baby brother James, both of whom passed away before her.

Ann, I am so sorry that I was not at your memorial. You will forever be in my heart, my friend.

To Ann's other family members, I am so sorry Shirley and I could not attend Ann's funeral. Shirley had knee replacement last Thursday and I can not leave her at this time.
My greatest memory Ann was from our childhood. Ann, Sue, our cousin, Leslie Bill, used to play together at family get to-gethers which were usually held at my grandmother and grandfather's house in Carrollton. Even as a child, Ann had a great smile and was always friendly to everyone. I will always remember her and pray that she has a special place in heaven.
Our warmest regards to the rest of Ann's family,
Charles, Shirley and Kevin Shafer

Ann, My sweet friend and neighbor. She had peace in her soul for the past weeks, now she has eternal life with our Lord, and peace reunited with many loved ones. Ann was the first to welcome me to Irving when I moved into the neighborhood, introducing me to her friends, and church. She made me feel so welcome, part of the church family, plus the community. We became fast friends, had many fun times. She had been very ill for the past few years, but always had one of those beautiful smiles for me. RIP my dearly loved friend. I will miss you and our morning visits over a cup of coffee, solving the problems of the world.
