I am so sad to hear of Ann's passing. I will be making a trip to Greenville next month, and she was the first person I wanted to see. Anne helped me so much during RCIA, even though she was fighting cancer, and she even gave me several day lilies before she moved to her last residence. I will miss her. My condolences to the family.

Chers enfants de Peter et Ann, De 1976 à 1983, sur l'initiative et grâce à l'animation de Peter et Ann, nous avons eu la chance de participer à un groupe de prières et de réflexions mensuels à Wellington Green, nous en gardons un très bon souvenir. Peter étudiait les textes dans la traduction française de la "Bible de Jérusalem", ce qui facilitait nos échanges et nos partages. Nous avons aussi ensemble couru les stades avec le St Giles Soccer Club, nos enfants sont toujours en contact. Aujourd'hui, à 7000 km, nous avons partagé vos prières grâce à la retransmission de la cérémonie des obsèques d'Ann. Nous restons en union avec vous tous. Luc et Dominique Lescanne.

Peter studied the texts in the French translation of the "Bible de Jérusalem", which facilitated our exchanges and sharing. We also ran the stadiums together with the St Giles Soccer Club ; our children are always in touch. Today, 7000 km away, we shared your prayers thanks to the broadcast of Ann's funeral ceremony. We remain in union with all of you. Luc and Dominique Lescanne.

Dear McCord Family and Friends - I was saddened to learn of Mrs. McCord's passing. Reading her obituary, I learned so much about her that I never knew as a teenager when I met her at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, Greer. I do remember enjoying to read the church bulletin she wrote and published every week. And Mrs. McCord always seemed so calm and positive. Wishing you comfort in your grief and many good memories in celebrating her life.

Ann told me that kids can't be expected to sit through church until they are 4 and I have used this as a benchmark and shared with other parents! I can think of several occasions when Ann's response to a question or her general attitude in a short conversation left me inspired to be positive. We loved seeing her and the group of cyclists on Fridays coming to the cafe on their ride and were so honored that she came on the most recent ride. She would shop at the cafe- lentil soup, tyger river lettuce, cheese puffs. We all enjoyed seeing her! Most recently we discussed her blood transfusions and how she prayed for the donor of the blood she was receiving. I will miss seeing her at church and the cafe - we are praying for the whole family!

I will miss Aunt Ann. Her sweet gentle spirit was such a blessing. Every year at Christmas I looked forward to her Christmas card with her hand drawn sketch. It always helped me to focus on the reason for the season. Simple and beautiful. I loved her and am grateful for her. Peace and love to the “Greenville McCords.”

I have so many happy memories of time shared with Ann. She loaned me her hats when I went through chemotherapy, offered me her experiences in parish administration, discovered pierogi's at a restaurant in Easley after church one day, beautified the grounds at St Anthony's, and opened her apartment to my family when we were exploring independent living places for my parents. A kind and generous bright light in my life. I look forward to seeing her again.

I had the immense privilege of meeting Ann through Furman University’s “Adopt A Grandparent” program. Spending time with her was always the highlight of my week and I treasured every opportunity to soak up her wisdom, exchange stories, and be a part of her beautiful life. My memories with her include countless walks around the Furman lake and the Swamp Rabbit Trial, going to farmers markets, and chatting on her porch while we watched the world go by. We bonded over our love of birds, flowers, and people. Ann supported me through the highs and lows of college and attended every one of my musical performances since we met. She loved her family fiercely and was truly a friend to all. She gave me a lifetime’s worth of love in the year and a half we were friends and I will carry her light with me always.

Dear Chris and brothers: We were so sorry to learn about your mom's death. She and your Dad were good friends and key founding members of Blessed Trinity Parish. Your Mom was our first parish secretary and Director of Religious Education. The last time we saw your Mom was at Clare Paul Altenhofen's funeral. We know that she loved riding her bike. She will be missed. John and Bea Heberger

To the McCord Family. My deepest condolences on your loss. My late wife, Pat, and I had a relationship with both Ann and Peter dating back to the early days at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. As a couple, they were outstanding, and individually they were dynamic. Ann has carried on her dedication and devotion to her Faith and Family, always with a smile. May her Soul Rest in Peace.
