A reception at the church will follow. Thomas J. Waybright (deceased) and Martha P. Waybright, her parents, raised her in Blacksburg.

She married Neil H. Whitehead III in 1975. In their life together, they climbed as high as any pair of eagles dared to fly. Ann and Neil worked together as consulting geologists to the oil and gas industry for the last 14 years. She is also survived by her sister, Amy White (Larry), of Harrisonburg, Va.; brother, John T. Waybright (Bonnie); aunt, Laura Jane Pascoe; uncle, James I. Pascoe; and cousin, Joanne Pascoe, all of Blacksburg. Ann was a faithful and loyal member of Evergreen Lutheran Church, Evergreen, Colo. Her ashes were scattered in Wyoming on the west flank of the Bighorn Mountains overlooking the Bighorn Basin.
