Graveside services for Ann Kerr Thickstun, 82, Abernathy, Texas, will be conducted at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 in the Abernathy Cemetery with the Rev. Janet Edwards officiating. Services are under the direction of Abell Funeral Home & Flower Shop of Abernathy, Texas.

Mrs. Thickstun died Monday, Oct, 8, 2012, in Tulsa, Okla. 

She was born Aug. 1, 1930, in Holly Grove, Ark. She was raised in the Brown County area. She met Millard Dale Thickstun after World War II while at North Texas State in Denton, Texas, and they were married Jan. 29, 1949, in Lubbock, Texas. She was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church and was the pianist at the Abernathy First United Methodist Church for 45 years. She was employed at the Texas Tech Dance Department for 15 years and later taught piano lessons out of her home.  

She was preceded in death by four siblings; and her husband, M. Dale Thickstun, in 2001.

She is survived by a son, Jon Charles Thickstun of Yukon, Okla., and a daughter, Juliana Peyravy of Tulsa, Okla.; four grandchildren, Sara Alison Peyravy, Johnathon Omeed Peyravy and his wife Nadine, Rebekah Ann Peyravy and Chloe Nicole Thickstun; and a great-grandson, Nathan Ryan Peyravy.

The family suggests memorials be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.
