She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, Joe McArthur; and son, Scott Jason Chevalier.
Ann is survived by her husband of nearly 60 years, Willie Chevalier; one daughter, Rox Ellen Colvin (Anton); three granddaughters, Keri Mueller (Dan), Courtney Colvin, Chelsea Smith (Brennan); father of her grandchildren, Chris Colvin; a great-granddaughter, Layla Colvin and a great-stepgrandson, Keith Mueller. She is also survived by a sister, Mildred Holmes; and a brother, James McArthur; and many nieces, nephew, and a host of friends.
Ann taught high school English for thirty-five years, thirty of those at Glenmora High School, two blocks from her home. She also taught those same students in Sunday school at Glenmora Baptist Church and would sometimes encourage the latter from the former.
For her husband, she was a 60- year gift from God. For her children, grandchildren and others, she was a great encourager, seldom one to condemn. She was a happy person, whether taking care of her husband, managing her home, cooking for her family, traveling, shopping, fishing or the many other things she did in her lifetime. She especially enjoyed her quiet time very early in the morning and an early nap in the afternoon. And she loved the class and people of the Early Bird Sunday school class of First Bossier.
