Oregon, IL

Anna Mae Cullen, 88, longtime resident of Oregon passed from this world on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 in Pinecrest Community, Mt. Morris. Born August 30, 1926 in Atoka, Oklahoma, the daughter of Lon and Elma (Brumley) Smith. Her life as a member of a large family on a farm in Wapanucka, Oklahoma contributed to her love of horses and outdoor activities. She met Merle Ray Cullen of Oregon, IL during World War II while he was stationed with the Army in Texas guarding German prisoners of war. They married on August 6, 1945 in Sherman, Texas and Ann came home to Oregon. Merle and Ann had two children: Stephen R. Cullen and Constance (Gary) Stauffer of Oregon, seven grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Merle, son Stephen and granddaughter Valerie. Ann retired from the telephone company after 25 years of service. She loved her family, her church family, friends and the great outdoors. A private memorial service for family and friends is planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, gifts to the Oregon Church of God or Chana School Museum would be appreciated. Farrell-Holland-Gale Funeral Home, Oregon assisted the family with arrangements.
