Obituary for Ann Louise Ferguson

Ann Louise Ferguson, age 68, passed away peacefully on June 20, 2018 after a brief battle with the cancer that had returned. Ann was born February 2, 1950, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, the daughter of Bessie Fern Fielding Warren and Earl Wells Arthur Warren.
The third child and first daughter, Ann held many responsibilities in the home of her youth, often caring for her five younger siblings, all of whom she loved beyond measure. Always the big sister, she encouraged them in the development of their talents and gifts, and instilled in them an appreciation for the joy of drama, poetry, art, and music. Ann was the first to say she couldn’t carry a tune, but she always sang with great gusto. A good student, with a keen intelligence, she was an avid reader, stored an amazing amount of trivia in her mind, and always enjoyed learning. A member of Mensa, puzzles and challenges always appealed to her. She loved playing Scrabble, competing in tournaments all around the country, began the Seattle Scrabble Club, and even served on the board of the National Scrabble Association. Professionally, she worked in typesetting and then in medical transcription, and also in real estate. Ann loved a good road trip, particularly those with her siblings to spend time with family in Idaho. She was devoted to her family and her close friends.
A quality inherited from her mother, Ann was endlessly generous. She gave to all of her time, her heart, and anything she might have that she thought someone she cared for might want. She found great joy in serving others. She always rooted for the underdog. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ann was devoted to living the gospel of Jesus Christ. She enjoyed serving in many capacities in her church, always finding great happiness in working and serving alongside those she cared so much about. The young Primary children whom she taught always knew that they were endlessly loved by Sister Ferguson.
She was married for a brief time at a young age, and her daughter Betsy was the joy of her life. She often said they “grew up together.” She gave her all to the raising of her daughter. An amazingly hard worker, Ann consistently was employed not only full-time, but also in multiple part-time jobs to provide for them. They were blessed with a close bond of love and friendship between them, enjoying their time playing board and card games, traveling on road trips, going to garage sales, watching movies, and simply spending time together.
Ann is survived by her daughter Betsy (Darin Eckton), grandchildren Rae, Emma, Clara, Quinn, and Sydney, her siblings Dee, Ed (Lesley), Jean, Joan (David Gibson), Eldon, Michael (Holly), Sandra, her many beloved nieces and nephews, and extended family in Idaho. She was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Bess Warren.
Funeral services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mountlake Ward (22015 48th Ave W, Mountlake Terrace), June 23, 2018. A viewing will begin at 10:00, and services will begin at 11:00. A graveside service and final interment will take place the following week at the Taylor Cemetery near Idaho Falls, Idaho.
Mom, you have given so much and asked for so little in return. Thank you for always being there for me, for teaching me, listening to me, helping and forgiving me, loving me, and always, always paving the way for me. I will ever strive to live the standards you taught, and become the person you seemed to believe I already was. Until we meet again, my sweet mother. You were simply magnificent.
