Ann was born on January 4, 1940 in Thomaston, Georgia to G. W. and Mary Teal. Her family moved to Memphis, TN when she was 13 and she graduated from Messick High School in 1958. She grew up with Elvis Presley playing at garage parties, dancing the night away. She married her high school sweetheart, Don Briggs on October 22, 1960 in Memphis. He joined the Air Force serving as a fire fighter and they moved to West Texas after he was discharged in 1966. She became a realtor in the mid 1970’s and enjoyed her time working with Jack Chapman and McDougal Properties until her retirement in 2018. They enjoyed traveling the world together and spending time with the grandkids. Her favorite thing to do was vacation at the beach with the family, specifically at Galveston and Cozumel, Mexico. She was also a huge Texas Tech fan and loved to attend games and tailgate with friends.
