August 22, 1939 - January 15, 2020
January 14, 2020 was a very special day for a very special lady as she passed from this mortal life into the Arms of her Heavenly Father and Brother Jesus Christ. Ann was born August 22, 1939 in Provo Utah to Lynn and Nellie Mecham. She grew up in a home with great love and support from the most wonderful mother and family. Ann was blessed to have three brothers and three sisters. She graduated from Provo High School, Hollywood Beauty College. She attended LDS Business College and Brigham Young University. She served a wonderful mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Southern States Mission. In her youth she was Stake Activity Counselor and Ward MIA President. She served as Stake Camp Leader and was known as Sparkie to all of her camp friends. She loved the hymns and led the music in Sacrament Meeting for years. Ann went through life with a song in her heart and a smile on her face. She worked in the Medical Field serving in Salt Lake, Provo and St. George. She met the love of her life and was married to John Blackburn in July 1972 in the Provo Temple. She loved attending the temple and feeling the beautiful spirit there. Ann had a wonderful and loving family. John brought to their marriage a beautiful daughter Susan. They were thrilled when Beti joined their family. They have been blessed with ten grandchildren whom, they loved. Ann was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers and four sisters. And her loving husband. She is survived by a brother Eldon Mecham and Sister Wanda McEntire. Two daughters, ten grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers it was Ann’s desire for money to be donated to the Missionary Fund for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We express our love and appreciation to all the Dr’s. of which there were many, who helped to extend her life. We express our appreciation to all those who tenderly cared for Ann this past year at the Seasons, Meadows, Bella Terra and to Apple Gate Hospice.
