Ann was born July 17, 1931, in Lillis, KS, to Matthew and Lillian (O'Brien) Noud.  She attended Frankfort High School and graduated in the class of 1949.  Ann was united in marriage to Lyle Howell on May 5, 1951 at Annunciation Catholic Church.  To this union, they were blessed with two sons, Joe and Pat.

During high school, Ann worked as an operator at South Western Bell, a telephone company in Frankfort.  The company later moved to Marysville, becoming AT&T.  In 1979, the Marysville location closed and Ann was transferred to Topeka where she worked as a manager up until her retirement in 1990.  After Ann retired, she helped Lyle on the farm.  

Ann was a member of Annunciation Catholic Church and was apart of the Altar Society.  She was also a member of Pioneers, A Volunteer Network, the largest group of industry specific employees and retirees dedicated to community service.  

Ann and Lyle loved to spoil their kids and grandkids.  They would always attend their sporting events and loved to watch K-State games together.

She is preceded in death by her husband; parents;  siblings, James Noud, Ignatius Noud, Anastashia Boggess, Mary Katherine Hill, Regina Noud, Eleanor Bussart, Matthew Noud, Wilma Zook, Patricia Toone and Aloysious "Jack" Noud.

Survivors include her sons, Joe (Penny) Howell, Marysville, and Pat (Kathy) Howell, Denver, CO; five grandchildren, Aaron (Annie) Howell, Matt Howell, Alyse (Edward) Hsu, Meredith (Matt) Bergmann and Mark (Gentry) Howell; and seven great grandchildren, Charlie Howell, Lillian Howell, Henry Hsu, Allan Bergmann, Wrigley Howell, Leona Bergmann and Brecken Howell.

A memorial fund has been established and will be designated later.  Contributions may be sent in care of Padden Funeral Chapel.
