Ann V. Richey went home to be with Jesus on Friday, August 13, 2021. She was born in Eugene, OR on Monday, May 3, 1943 to John C. and Josephine Matilda Vaughan. She was a longtime resident of Longview, having moved back after 20 years in Spokane. Although she worked many jobs in her life her favorite job was being a wife, mother and grandmother. A beloved member of the community, she volunteered with the Sheriff’s office in Spokane even filling the roll of President.
Ann loved visiting with friends and family, talking on the phone and travelling in her RV with her husband, Ed. She was loved by all who met her, as she never met anyone that wasn’t her friend. Ann was a woman that lived life to the fullest, loved adventure, was outgoing, empathetic, gracious, generous and loving.
Ann was preceded in death by granddaughter, Shannon Ann; daughter, Debbra Ann; son, Christopher Allen. She is survived by the love of her life and husband, Ed Richey of Longview; son, James Lee of Spokane; daughter, Mary Hawkins of Longview; daughter and son-in-law, Tanya and David Pittsley of Longview; grandsons, Nick and Ethan Pittsley both of Longview; granddaughters, Kristin Lee-Smith of Longview, and Melissa Lee of Colorado.
Those who knew Ann know that she was a very spiritual and faithful person. She would often talk about how the Lord worked in her life. She credited the Lord with bringing her and the love
of her life, Ed together. She will be remembered for always having a phone to her ear, a Pepsi with lots of ice next to her, a cigarette in her hand and a kind word for everyone. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
We love you and will miss you very much!
