Ann Tandon, 86, of El Dorado, passed away Jan. 27 in El Dorado.

Ann’s life began on February 26, 1933, in Abbeyleix Co. Laois, Ireland; the daughter of Thomas and Maureen (Acton) Davidson. Ann came to the United States as a young adult and remained in the country ever since. She met Om Tandon as they lived in the same apartment complex in Patterson, New Jersey. Ann and Om were united in marriage on Sept. 10, 1966, in Patterson. They were married for 48 years. She and Om traveled the world together.

Ann believed a cup of tea fixed everything, a cup for the morning, a cup for worries and a cup for any situation. She was known for baking tea cakes. Ann was known as the “hostess with the mostess.” She was a very classy lady and was always well put-together. She was always formal but welcoming and genuine. Ann had a wonderful sense of humor.

Her greatest joy was her family which includes her daughter Sheila (Rex) Hoyt of Leon; grandchildren Chase Hoyt, Kaytlin Hoyt, Lane Hoyt, and Kendell Hoyt; siblings Elizabeth (Dr. Louis) Byrne, Michael (Ginger) Davidson, and Helen (Ken) Anderson.

She is preceded in death by her husband Om and siblings Brendan Davidson and Olive (Michael) Turner. Friends may gather with the family from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday (Jan. 31, 2020) at the Carlson Colonial Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 1, 2020) at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.
