Ann Bernard

November 13, 1941 - September 17, 2017

Wesley Ann Bernard, 75, passed away Sunday, 09/17/2017 in Virginia Beach.  Ann was born 11/13/1941 in Norfolk, VA to George and Mattie Cutler.  Ann attended Maury High School and moved on to become a bus driver for Virginia Beach City Public Schools where she served faithfully for 49 years.
Ann met and married Sherwood F. Bernard Sr.  Their union brought forth four wonderful children.  Ann loved her family and truly enjoyed crafting, estate sales, and most of all, anything Christmas.  She could be best described as a feisty lady who told it like it was.
Sadly, Ann was predeceased by her husband Sherwood, known as “Bear” as well her son, Bernie and her parents.  Left to cherish her memory are three children;  Debbie McReynolds and husband Robert, Cheryl Ruffin and husband Gene, and Sherwood Bernard Jr. “Buddy Jr.”; her sisters, Jean Creef and husband Avery, Ellen Thomason and her husband Ira; grandchildren Nickie & Tori Ruffin, Sherwood Bernard III and wife Katelyn; and a host of additional family, friends and co-workers.
A memorial service celebrating Ann’s life will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Altmeyer Funeral Home at 2 PM, 5792 Greenwich Road in Virginia Beach.
