Ann Kenner Blount

Corsicana —

Mrs. Ann Kenner Blount, age 83, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013 at the Belmont at Twin Creeks Nursing Home in Allen. She was born March 7, 1929 in Corsicana to William B. and Janie Kenner.

Ann graduated from Corsicana High School in 1946. She spent over 30 years in Pasadena, Texas where she raised her family and took pride in her work as an employment counselor.  She loved playing bridge and enjoyed bargain shopping, especially for jewelry. She was a very fun-loving individual and as a result had many, many friends.  

Ann always considered Corsicana her “home” where she spent the majority of her remaining years.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Wayne Blount, her siblings Jane Rouse and William Kenner, and her grandson Richard Davidson.

She is survived by her children, Dr. Fred Raby and wife Penny of Hewitt, and Lynda Davidson and husband Mike of Allen. She is also survived by the father of her children, Emmett W. Raby.  Ann was blessed with four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at Oakwood Cemetery in Corsicana with Dr. Rick Lamb officiating.  A remembrance gathering will follow at the Holiday Inn Express in Corsicana at Hwy 287 and I45.

Memorial contributions may be made to the National Kidney Foundation at 30 East 33rd Street, New York, New York, 10016.
