Ann W. Baird, 78, of Waco, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, at a local nursing facility. Funeral services will be 1 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, at Grace Gardens Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Ken Riley officiating. Interment will follow at Grapevine Cemetery in Grapevine, Texas.
Ann was born in Dallas, Texas, to the late Ira Noble and Annie Mae Wheat. She was a "professional" homemaker, mom and wife, and was happy to support her husband's career, having moved her family 12 times to 10 cities before moving to Waco after his death in 1996. She loved exploring new places and making new friends as she and Ewell moved their family to places like Grand Prairie, Irving, Wichita Falls, Abilene, Ponca City, Okla., Denver, Colo., Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Atlantic City, N.J., Houston, and Grapevine. Her deep faith in her Lord Jesus Christ and the joy she received from singing and praising God in each church she was privileged to attend, gave her an overflowing and contagious love and peace that was her constant companion, especially as she made her last move to Heaven.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ewell Dean Baird.
Ann is survived by her sons, Robin Baird and his wife, Georgia, of Waco, and their children, Ryan, Travis, and Foster, Kenneth Baird and his wife, Pam, of McKinney, and their children, Niki, Erin, and Kenny, and Mical Baird and his wife, Sherry, of Bethany, Okla., who are in the process of adopting Ethan, Patrick, and Alex; daughter, Stephanie Lippencott and her husband, Jeffrey, of Santa Clarita, Calif., and children, Carol Ann and Emma; brother, Ralph Wheat of Bedford, Texas; and many other relatives and friends.
