Ann was born on January 16, 1941 in White Earth, Minnesota, the daughter of Fernette (Ortley) Neeland. She attended Flandreau School in South Dakota. She met and fell in love with Ernest Stevens. They started a family in St. Paul, Minnesota. Together they later moved to the White Earth Reservation to make their home.
Ann loved to cook. She enjoyed spending time in her garden and loved flowers. She enjoyed sitting on her porch watching the squirrels, chipmunks and birds that she fed. Over the years she traveled, she always looked forward to going to Montana and camping at PowWows. She was big fan of both the Vikings and the Twins and loved to watch their games. She loved to listen to music, but had a special place in her heart for Elvis. One of her favorite delights was a nice, cold Pepsi, especially after a day of thrift store shopping or rummage sales.
Ann was a loving mother and an amazing grandma. She was a strong woman, but was always kind and caring. She will be tremendously missed.
She is survived by her daughters, Shelia Stevens, Josette Thunder, and Liza Stevens; her sons, William Stevens, Daniel Ortley, Ernest Ortley; her sisters, Celesta Neeland, Lenora Neeland, Mary Neeland, and Sherry Neeland; her brother, Charlie Neeland; her special brother, Amos Weise; many grandchildren and great grandchildren; and many other loved family and friends.
