Anne has been one of my best friends for many years. We've laughed more than we've cried and she has always given a listening ear and good counsel. Anne's greatest joy was her children and grandchildren. We heard many stories at WHS and WMS. She taught Nathan in 2nd grade and was a guidance counselor for both our children. Our lives are richer for knowing Anne. Praying for your children, grandchildren and family. Love you! Sally

I met Anne through the Senior Singles Club (AKA O-40's). She was so pleasant to be around and such a help! She will be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. My name is Ann Arrants Dunham and I am wondering if we were related. I was named for nurse Annie Arrants Starnes in Cola. Her brother was my Dad, Ben Arrants. They were related to Claytor Arrants in Camden. Anne Arrants Olliff and I were born about the same time. May she rest in peace basking in Jesus' love and joy.
