Ann Lampe passed away April 7 at Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Ann was born November 19, 1953. She grew up in Jackson and was graduated from Calloway High School in 1971. After a short sojourn to Hattiesburg and the University of Southern Mississippi, Ann returned to Jackson and began her 36-year career at Be-Bop Record Shop. In addition to her love of music, she had a special talent for meeting people and making friends. She was a big influence and mentor to many of the younger people working at Be-Bop through the years.

Ann loved the beach and the time she spent there with her closest friends. She also enjoyed spending time at Eagle Lake. She loved the beauty and peacefulness of living in the country for the past 10 years.

Ann was predeceased by her parents, Henry and Jane Ann Lampe, and her brothers Hank and John.
