Ann G. Harter, age 90 passed away on February 2, 2020. Ann was born in Decatur, Alabama on July 3, 1929. She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, James "Jim" Harter; parents, Marjorie Pointer Garner and Elbert Blair "Buddy" Garner.

She leaves a daughter, Barbara (Ward) Whelchel; son, Bob Harter; grandsons, Andrew (Christine) Whelchel, Brad Whelchel; granddaughter, Emily (Clint) Morrell; 4 great grandchildren and other extended family and friends.

She was a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church since 1953, when she and her husband moved to Fountain City from Oak Ridge, TN. Ann graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.S. in Education. After her children started school, she taught kindergarten at the Church of the Good Shepherd for 13 years. One of her great joys was later seeing her former students with their children and still being remembered as "Miss Ann". After retiring, she and her husband spent many happy years going to their cabin on Norris Lake and traveling. She and Jim loved their community and were involved with many scenic beauty protection issues both locally and statewide. In 1988 she was named Fountain City Woman of the Year, and later she and her husband received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Scenic Knoxville. As a board member of Scenic Tennessee, she was co-editor of the Scenic Tennessee Newsletter for many years. She loved her family and friends and will be missed.

A service will be held 2:00pm on Saturday, February 8th at St. Paul United Methodist Church (4014 Garden Drive, Knoxville, TN 37918). In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Paul U.M.C., Mobile Meals, or Volunteer Ministries. Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel is honored to serve the Harter family and invites you to view and sign the online registry below.

Scenic conservation in Tennessee has lost a dedicated advocate and caring supporter in Ann Harter, who, with her husband Jim, constituted an effective team over many years on behalf of a more civil society and cleaner environment, enriched by their efforts. Ann and Jim were also good and faithful friends to their kindred spirits in Scenic Tennessee and Scenic Knoxville. They jointly received the only Lifetime Achievement Award yet bestowed by Scenic Knoxville.

To the Harter Family.
Ann and Jim will always be remembered for their sharing love for
friends and working with the St Paul Boys Scout Troops programs.

Aunt Ann was the classic example of a "favorite aunt". As children we used to sit in rapt attention as she told us one of her many stories. She was so kind and had a smile for everyone. Such a sweet person. We'll miss her greatly!

Ann will be missed. Loved her smile she always wore no matter what was going on. She was someone you could talk to and laugh with about the silliest things. I will miss our weekly talks at Park Place while getting our hair done. She was truly an inspiration. God Bless the Family and My Prayers are With You.

Dear the Harter family, Ann Harter was such a wonderful lady. And all the years at St. Paul Church she was always so happy and friendly and never failed to ask how my son was doing, and she was a wonderful cook and such a great lady. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you.

Kelly Dixon on Feb 5, 2020

Dear family, she was a dear, sweet person and family friend. She was the true meaning of kindness and radiant light. I have many fond memories of her but one stands out when she would play the Dulcimer for our childrens dept at St.Paul. I regret that I can't pay my respects this Saturday. Prayers to your family.
