She was born November 2, 1925 in Florence Texas to Edward Parsons and Dolly Davis Parsons. The last of their four children, she grew up on a farm in Andice, Texas.

Ann was a member of Tarrytown United Methodist Church. She recalled that as a young girl, she was baptized in the San Gabriel River.
Ann loved singing, dancing, playing golf and being with her family and friends. Ann began playing golf in the 50's. She and Chester enjoyed playing in tournaments and sixsomes. She won numerous tournaments including the Stacy Elliott and the 1969 WGA Woman's Partnership. In 2009 she was honored by WGA for her long- time membership of the Austin Country Club WGA and was made an Honorary Lifetime Member of WGA. Always a sweet and beautiful lady, she was calm and steady. Her golfing friends would say she was cool, and always in the game. Many years were enjoyed with the Singing Notables Harmony group and she could be found enjoying herself on the dance floor on many occasions.
She was a kind and devoted mother to her four children and continued to care for sweet Barb into her eighties; her adoring grandchildren called her "sweet Mamaw".
