Children: Todd & Laura; 1 granddaughter
Present work and/or activities: I currently work in home health.
Bio: After high school, I attended Salem College (a women's college in Winston-Salem, N.C.), Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and graduated in 1965 from the University of Florida. I earned a B.S. degree in Nursing. I was a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority at SMU and the University of Florida (along with Pat Stephenson and Susan Chase from our WPHS class). I was honored to be Sweetheart of Kappa Sigma fraternity at Sewanee: The University of the South. After college graduation, I obtained a job as a nurse at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Grady Hospital was a large, inner-city hospital/trauma center and teaching hospital for Emory University School of Medicine. I loved my job--and loved Atlanta--a stunningly beautiful city! I came back to Winter Park, got a job, and in 1969 met and married my husband, Tracy. We have lived in several cities in the Southeast, including tiny St. Cloud, the community near Kissimmee. We have two children. Our married son Todd (no grandchildren yet) works as an Assets Allocation Analyst in the financial industry. Our daughter, Laura, formerly a student, is married to a PhD candidate at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. Her husband aspires to be a pharmaceutical research scientist. His research work to complete the doctoral dissertation involves Alzheimer's disease. They have one toddler, a little daughter who is 1 1/2 years old, and expect a second child in late spring.
Future plans and goals: I hope to be able to retire some day---and learn quilting. Additionally, I would like to get back to oil painting which I so enjoyed years ago. And----I would like to raise roses!

Ann Tomena (Christenson) Wrenn died at 10:20am on Sunday, 23 October 2016 at Orlando Regional Medical Center, Orlando, Florida. She was 101 years old. For several years she had lived at Westminster Towers Health Center, Orlando, moving there from her home at the Oaks in Deland, Florida.
Ann, born 18 Feb 1915 in Jonesboro, Texas, was the next to the yungest child of Peter L. Christenson and Cora Rohne. She received her nursing degree from Providence Hospital School of Nursing in Waco, Texas and met her future husband, Dr. Simeon Mayo Wrenn while they were both working at the VA Hospital in Fayetteville, Arkansas;he was a surgeon and she was surgical nurse.
Ann loved her homes, especially 610 Palmer avenue, Winter Park, Florida where she lived most of her life. She raised her family here and was very involved in the community. She and Dr. Wrenn bought a lot on Lake Osceola and contracted builders from North Carolina to construct the home with aged bricks from old North Carolina kilns. The home was a warm and inviting place for the family and fiends. To escape the Florida heat they had a summer cabin built for the family in Candler, NC in the mountains near Asheville with a distant view of Mt. Pisgah.
Ann was a calm, happy and tranquil woman who lived her flowers and her gardens. She enjoyed antiquing, refinishing furniture, needlepoint, oil painting, quilting sewing and was proficient in all of these skills. She decorated with pale colors with an eye to Comfort and ease. She wanted her visitors to feel perfectly at home. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will forever remember here as being devoted to each of the, taking sincere interest in all of their activities and talents. She loved their visits and is remembered as cooking wonderful meals - particularly the roast beef dinners and the oatmeal raisin cookies. Ann's granddaughter, Katherine, remembers, "There are so many wonderful memories of Granny. She was a beautiful woman who had this inner light. This was evident in the sparkle in her eyes and smile that she always wore. She was forever the gracious hostess, and always had special meals planned if we were in for a visit. She always wore a smile." There are special family memories of many summer and fall visits with her in her charming home in Hendersonville, NC.
She is profoundly missed by her children: Nancy Anne Starcher and Dr. Simeon M. Wrenn, Jr., both living in North Carolina; her grandchildren: Laura Wrenn Hirko of Florida and Todd Starcher of NC; Katherine Elliott Brown of Connecticut, Simeon M. Wrenn, III of NC; and her four great grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Ann C. Wrenn's name may be sent to The Rock Church, P. O Box 148, Crnfills Gap, TX 76637.
