Mrs. Ann Thrash Ogletree passed away on August 3, 2018 at her home in Carthage.

She was born November 1, 1930 in Neshoba County, where she grew up. She married Sidney Ogletree, of the Dixon community, on February 10, 1955 at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Jackson, MS, where they were both members. They lived in Jackson, where they had one son, Brad, in 1968.

Ann worked for Armstrong World Industries for 33 years, serving as the very first female comptroller in company history. Retiring in 1989, Ann found more time for hobbies like gardening and shopping. She was an avid shopper, always eager to find a sale. Many clerks at Metrocenter Mall, Claudia’s Fabrics, and Tuesday Mornings considered her a friend.

Her passion for flowers was evident in her beautiful yard. She loved cut flowers, particularly roses. In later years, she loved bird watching out her window.

Her favorite past-time was spending time with her grandchildren; so much so that Ann and Sidney moved to Carthage to be nearer to their family in 2004. Her granddaughters loved coming to “Nana’s” because they knew they could always count on popcorn, fresh-baked cookies, and root beer. Ann served in the Cookie Ministry at the Carthage United Methodist Church, where she was an active participant for many years.

She was the last surviving child of Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Thrash of Philadelphia. She was preceded in death by her parents; her four brothers Arlton, Carlton, George, and Leonard; and her sister Helen Thrash Fulton.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years Sidney Ogletree; her son Brad Ogletree (Mikki), and her granddaughters Sydney and Sadie Ogletree; all of Carthage.

 Services were 2:30 pm Sunday Aug.5, 2018 at Wilcox Funeral Home in Carthage.

Burial was at Ocobla Cemetery in Neshoba County.
