Here is the link for the virtual funeral service. https://my.gather.app/remember/ann-horn Ann Combs Horn, 93, died February 21 at home in Plainview, Texas. She was born in Greenville, Texas, in 1928. In 1945, Ann graduated from Whitesboro (Texas) High School, where she was valedictorian in a class of 35. In the fall of 1945, she enrolled at the University of Texas. At UT, Ann was a member of several extracurricular organizations, including Orange Jackets, an honorary service organization. She also served as an associate justice on the Student Supreme Court and was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Ann graduated in May 1949 with a bachelor’s degree in Home Economics, specializing in Nutrition. Two months earlier, she met Joe Horn at the Wesley Foundation, a student organization at University United Methodist Church in Austin. In 1950, they married in Whitesboro. While Joe spent the next four years at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Ann handled several jobs, including assistant dietician at The Hockaday School. Her boss was Plainview native Gerald Ramsey. In 1951, she was named head dietician at First Methodist Church in downtown Dallas, where she worked for two years. Joe and Ann moved to Plainview in 1954. Although a lifelong First Methodist Church member, Ann had never accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. R.L. Kirk, pastor of First Methodist Church in Plainview, brought Lay Witness for Christ to Plainview in 1975. The weekend of December 8, 1975, Ann gave her life over to Christ. For several years after that, Joe and Ann traveled to Lay Witness events throughout Texas. Ann also enrolled in the Bethel Bible Series and placed second out of 600 participants in a national memory verse contest held in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1979. Additionally, she taught the Hand-in-Hand adult Sunday school class for 30 years at First Methodist Church in Plainview and was a member of the Gamma Delta Study Club. A voracious reader, Ann’s favorite books included Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield and A Tale of Two Cities, Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, James Michener’s Hawaii and, of course, The Bible. She was also active in the Humane Society, where she baked cheesecakes for fundraisers. In 1992, she won the Paws Award for “Doggone Good Help.” Her husband Joe died March 5, 2014. Ann is survived by her two sons and two daughters. Sons: Mark and (Kathleen) Horn of Richardson, Texas, and Steve Horn of Plainview, Texas.
