Ann Wagoner Unger, 56, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and formerly of Zionsville, Indiana, went to be with the Lord on Monday, Dec. 12, 2016.
Ann was born April 12, 1960, in Columbus, Ohio, daughter of Floyd E. Wagoner and Helen Huff Wagoner, both of whom preceded her in death. She attended Hayworth High School, where she was a cheerleader, golfer, social butterfly, and a member of the homecoming court. She was then a student at Ball State University, where she received her Bachelor of Science in psychology and continued to use this study and her gift to counsel the many people in her life. Ann concluded her vivacious career by being a wonderful educator to the hundreds of children she worked with and who she treated as her own.
She moved in October to Charleston, South Carolina, where she and her husband, Roger S. Unger, spent two months living their new adventure with memories that will last far beyond her short time here on earth. Ann was known for her contagious laugh and beautiful smile. Everyone who knew her knows that her love for children, animals, and life was far greater than most.
Her favorite part of the past couple of years was when she came to Indiana University for Alpha Xi Delta Mom's Weekend with Alyssa, and the memories made on those weekends will be with Alyssa forever. Over Thanksgiving, Ann had the opportunity to visit her oldest daughter, Alexis, in her new home, and the family is grateful for all of the pictures and meals shared when they unknowingly spent the last few moments they had together laughing and enjoying life.
Ann had a wonderful relationship with the Lord and is undoubtedly in heaven with her mother, father, daughter, and many other family members and friends.
She had an extreme joy for life that few ever understood. No challenge was too great and no problem too big for her to solve. She loved everyone she met, and she loved every living thing in the world, especially her two furry "boys," Arnold and Hokie. She loved golfing, dancing, reading, and sitting by the pool talking to her friends. She especially loved her husband of 24 years. She loved life and every single part of it, and will be remembered for that wonderful legacy.
Ann is survived by her husband; two daughters, Alyssa Diane Unger, of Zionsville, and Alexis Ann Unger, of New York, New York; brother, Bradley J. Wagoner; sister-in-law, Tracy Wagoner; nieces, Lindsay Groves and Ashley Trammell; mother-in-law, Lois Unger; sister-in-law, Lisa Sandman; brother-in-law, Michael Sandman; and nephews, Marshall and Ryan.
Her memorial service will be held at 1 p.m., Friday, Dec. 16, in the J. Henry Stuhr, Inc., Mount Pleasant Chapel, 1494 Mathis Ferry Road, Mount Pleasant, SC.
Memorials may be made to Make-A-Wish Foundation, 3520 Meeks Farm Road, Suite-C, Johns Island, SC 29455.
