Ann Therese Witsman, 58, of Springfield, died at 12:37 a.m. on Thursday, July 20, 2017, at Heritage Health surrounded by her family and friends.

Ann was born March 12, 1959, in Taylorville, the daughter of Stuart and Alacoque Traynor.

Ann most enjoyed raising her sons and watching them grow into the men that they are today. She was an avid Notre Dame and Dayton University fan. She was a proud member of Blessed Sacrament Parish. Ann was always there for any one at any time, willing to help whomever she could. Her zest for life and her smile were always contagious.
