Ann Michelle ChungAnn Michelle Chung, nee Brown, age 43, of Homewood, IL, passed away peacefully Friday, August 12, 2022. Beloved wife of Thomas L. Chung. Cherished daughter of Michael and Barb Brown. Loving sister of Matthew A. Brown.

Annie’s friends describe her as “pure walking sunshine” and “a bright light like an angel.” She always found the good in people and the positive in any situation. Her genuine compassion and selflessness touched the hearts of so many people. Annie was funny, quick witted, and had a smile that would light up the room.

She loved music. She loved to travel. She loved good food and good beer. She loved cheesy hallmark movies and murder mystery TV shows. Most importantly, she loved her husband, her family, her friends, her church, and her dogs.

Annie believes in the saying, “Joy is much bigger than happiness. While happiness is often seen as dependent on external circumstances, Joy is not.” Her life was most certainly full of JOY!
