Ann E. Miller passed away of heart and kidney failure on April 2, 2024, in Olympia, Washington.  She had been living at The Firs Independent Living Residence the past seven and a half years. She was born January 6, 1947, to William D. and Elizabeth (Conlin) Baird at Maxwell AFB, Alabama.

Professionally, she worked for Washington DSHS for 10 years and was Admin Staffer with the State of Washington for five years, until injured on the job.  She also was a real estate salesperson with several companies.


Ann loved to sing and performed with the “Sweet Adelines” for six years in the ‘70s and ‘80s as the lead singer. She loved traveling; favorite trips include Alaska and Mexico with her significant other, James Armstrong, former U.S. Marine and IT Tech with the Washington State Attorney General’s office. In addition, Ann loved being “on the water,” whether Hood Canal, Ocean Shores, Seaside or Acapulco, Mexico. She was a “seafood fanatic.” She also loved going to casinos. In her youth, she belonged to the Girl Scouts in Tacoma, Washington.
