This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, ANN LAZAR REED 79 years old, born on July 20, 1925 and passed away on September 28, 2004. We will remember her forever.

Ann's maiden name is Ann Louise Lazar.  She had more than one marriage, her last one was to Charles Reed.  Thus, Ann and Charles Reed.  They are both now deceased and buried at the same place, Union Cemetery at Potomac Ave in Bakesrsield, California. Bless them both. 

She did health care, one woman whom she worked for many years was Mrs. Merryweather.  I remember she'd go there early morning returning in the afternoons.  She took care of various things there for a number of individuals.  Cooking, which she did very well, cleaned etc....

At this point, I'm including a true family history as far as I know of her children.

I believe the oldest of Ann's children who I know of were Pauline Kibler and Jack Kibler.  I know a little only of Jack Kibler.  What I can say is that he lived in Castroville, Texas and he passed on only a short time ago.  I believe he has a daughter by the name of Christine or Christina who may be married by now and I think possibly a son too.  I am not knowledgeable about their spouses.

Next oldest would be Ann's son Michael Burkholder who resides in Provo, Utah. Mike and his spouse, Lynda had children.  Michael and Lynda Burkholder.  Unfortunately she has passed on and is missed so,  I remember her for while she was here she was a teacher of and about family.   Together their children being Michael Burkholder and Gordon Burkholder and presently living in Utah.  Mike and his sons do trucking work, long distance.  The relationships of my brother and all of the family there in Utah is very unique.  They keep family together somehow even though they don't all live in the same towns maybe facebook is the helping thing.  I'm proud of my bother and his family and consider him to be a matriarch.

Next in line was my wonderful and very special sister,  Her birth name was Cindy Elizabeth Brown.  I believe her father's name is Leroy Brown but I know nothing about him. She was born in Youngstown, Ohio.  Living there her entire life.  She married Theodore Nicoloff.  Thus the union Cindy and Teddy Nicoloff. Together they had 2 children as well.  Leo Guzeppi Brown and Sienna Nicoloff.  Her daughter Sienna has since married and had a child (Eric) and no longer goes by last name Nicoloff.  Cindy was called by our father early in life.  Cancer took her when she was only 50 years old  She passed away at her home in Hubbard, Ohio and to this day so many people missing her.  She meant so much to so many more than I ever could have known. At the funeral the caravan was so large, it was really then that it sank in who and what she was.   

Ann's youngest daughter whose birth name is Tammy Lou Burkholder.  She is as special as they come as well and I really think the world of her.  She has a successful and long term career working for Kern County in the mental health field.  She married Neil Cates of Bakersfield, California.  Marriage names Tammy and Neil Cates.  She had 2 beautiful boys, both blonde.  She lost her eldest, Timothy Malone to a drunk driver. Tammy's youngest boy, Andrew Cates is alive and well.  He has married now to Kelsey and they have 2 boys of their own.  They are truly a beautiful family and close knit to their relatives on Kelsey's side. Since then Ann's youngest daughter  re-married to Daniel McGrath. And thusly, we get the couple Tammy Cates McGrath and Dan McGrath.  They make each other happy, may they live long together.

And lastly, there is the me who provided these details.  Sandra Burkholder from Ann's marriage to Leroy.  Together they were Ann and Leroy Burkholder where I was born once upon a time in Youngstown, Ohio.  Today I live with my Spouse Ronald in Las Vegas, Nevada....….and where I'll leave off for now.  

Please share with us your memories of Ann Louise Lazar Reed.
