There she met her husband David Gammon Eagleburger. Ann and Dave were married for over 50 years until his passing on December 27, 2018.
Ann taught Kindergarten at Mesa Public Schools for 25 years until she retired to take care of her mother. She was a member of Mahnah Club and PEO as well as many other local organizations. Ann was a loved and cherished daughter, wife, mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother.

Ann adored her friends and family, and was available for anyone that needed to talk. We are all going to miss her smile, encouraging words, and optimism. She wanted everyone to know that she led a full life and cherished her time with all of you. She is on the other side enjoying laughter, her dogs, lunch with friends, being with her Arkansas and Texas family, and dancing with Dave.
