Posted By DeBord-Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory On April 2, 2013 @ 5:05 pm In Obituaries | 4 Comments

Ann (Folger) Tuggle, 80, died on Monday, April 1, 2013 at Hospice & Community Care. She was the wife of William Preston Tuggle, III whom she married in 1955 and the daughter of Walter Coke Folger and Margaret (Clinard) Folger of High Point, North Carolina.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her three sons, their wives and their children: William Coke Tuggle and Donath Patterson Tuggle of Portsmouth, Rhode Island; F. Folger Tuggle, Elizabeth Julian Tuggle and Isabelle Jun-Ji Tuggle of Norwich, Vermont; and Mark Preston Tuggle, Nicole Pepin Tuggle, Preston Alexander Tuggle and Spencer William Tuggle of Western Springs, Illinois. Ann is also survived by her three sisters and their husbands: Sue and Joe Converse of Augusta, Georgia; Jane and Benjamin Crutchfield of Buchannan, West Virginia; and Ruth and John Gillis of Fayetteville, North Carolina; and by her brother-in-law Ralph E. Tuggle and his wife Cleadys of Independence, Virginia. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Lancaster and Lancaster Country Club and resided at Willow Valley Retirement Communities.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of North Carolina (UNC) in 1954, she taught third grade in her home town of High Point, North Carolina. When her husband returned to UNC for graduate studies in 1958, she supported the family by teaching nursery school in Chapel Hill.
The abiding interest and great pleasure in her life were her family and her friends. She especially enjoyed celebrating the Christmas season by baking 20-plus kinds of cookies as gifts, accompanied by a different, handmade Christmas tree ornament each year.
In addition to raising their three sons while her husband was climbing the corporate ladder, she was a 50-plus year member of the church choir, an accomplished pianist, and a talented and dedicated quilter, artist (oils), knitter, needle pointer, and seamstress. She volunteered on numerous church committees as well as serving as a member of the Bernardsville N.J. Board of Health and on the board of the Somerset Hills (New Jersey) Visiting Nurse Association.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Memorial Service in the Johnson Auditorium of Willow Valley North, 600 Willow Valley Square, Lancaster, PA on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 11:00 A.M. Friends may greet the family immediately following the service.
Interment will take place Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 3:00 P.M. at the Willow Street United Church of Christ Cemetery, 240 Peach Bottom Rd, Willow Street, PA 17584.
In lieu of flowers contributions in her memory may be made to First United Methodist Church, 29 E. Walnut St., Lancaster, PA 17602, or to the American Parkinson’s Disease Association, 135 Parkinson’s Ave., Staten Island, NY, 10305.

Bill and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about Anne.What a fun gal she was. We were thinking of you both last week as we reminisced about our wonderful time with you at the Masters. Then I read the paper. What a shock! our thoughts and love are with you all. Duke and Ginger

I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Tuggle’s passing. I have many fond memories of helping her with various sewing and cookie projects.

Condolence from Stan and Carleene Hubbard on May 2nd, 2013 4:34 pm

Bill and sons: We just now learned of Ann’s death from Bonnie Wynne. Please accept our condolences and prayers as you all readjust to life without Ann. We had heard that she’d been quite ill for a long time, so I’m sure the loss is a mixed situation of relief and sadness!

I so well remember her instant response when Ell died 38+ years ago: she quickly arrived with a jug of iced tea and everything needed for serving it. We remember her great sense of humor and how much fun she was to be around.

Blessings to each of you!
Carleene Dobbs Hubbard
