WARSAW—Ann Gaskins Donovan, 68, a long-time resident of Warsaw, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

She was a member of Warsaw United Methodist Church.
Ann dearly loved her husband, children and grandchildren. She grew up on the water and loved boating, fishing and watching sunsets from the shore. She had a wonderful smile that could light up a room and a kind word for anyone in need.
