    Ann came to Anaheim from Texas with her parents, Fred and Minnie Meier and her two brothers, Harry and Herbie in 1914. She lived on their orange farm at Sunkist and Lincoln Aves., attending Lincoln El., Fremont Jr., and Anaheim High schools.

    In 1932 she married Charles Hill with whom she built a home on So. Helena St., and had 2 sons, Charles and Robert.

    Following her husband Charles' death she married Samuel Prentice, Sr. in 1945 with whom she had a son, Sam Jr. She worked in business offices for Hunt Foods, MCP, and Johnston Gendel Clinic, and Leonard & Gibson, MDs until she retired in 1979.

She was delightful, loving, gracious and friendly to all who met her, and when asked how she came to be that way, she said, "I've had some difficult times, but all-in-all, God has really blessed me."
