Born on April 5, 1940 in Clintonville, WV, she was the daughter of the late George Oscar Scruggs and Anna Catherine (Loudermilk) Scruggs. She was one of nine children born to this union. Ann attended local schools in Caldwell and White Sulphur Springs, WV. She later moved to Charleston, WV where she attended high school for a while, eventually moving back home and finishing her schooling at Rupert High School. Ann married the love of her life Ivan G. Bryant on August 3, 1959 in Lewisburg, WV. In the early 60’s they moved to Davidsonville, MD and together raised four children.
