ANN Langley will be forever remembered for her dedication to the people of Logan.
The community stalwart lost her battle with cancer on December 11 at the age of 80.
Described as an icon, the mother-of-six was the founder of TransitCare - a community transport and outreach service for older and isolated residents.
She was also the president of Logan and District Local Ambulance Committee, Chair Board of People with MS and a proactive Logan resident for more than 30 years.
Her good friend and colleague Christine Jones said Ann lived for the community.
"Ann was a community activist," she said.
"She was active in supporting four ambulance stations and the hospital hub and she helped raise a substantial amount to help equip vehicles and provide training materials to help enhance skills and knowledge in saving lives.
"She also created a CPR awareness program - which has also helped save many lives."
A woman of many skills and talents, Ann had been a music teacher, a cultural officer, a rock star and was the first female motorcycle mechanic in Queensland.
"She got her motorcycle certificate in the early days when women didn't do those sorts of things," Ms Jones said.
"She was a very strong, confident lady.
"She had a big heart and she cared about people but she was also a straight shooter and didn't beat around the bush because she was all about outcomes and solutions."
Ms Jones said Ann overcame many hurdles - not only in the community but in her personal life.
"She lost her husband when her children were young," she said.
"She was also diagnosed with MS soon after and although she lived a hard life she never allowed her struggles to control her.
"She always found a way to put her struggles in a positive light and from her struggles came TransitCare."
Another good friend and TransitCare CEO Louis de Beer said Ann lived life to the fullest.
"She lost a lung to TB in her early twenties but her response was to not 'give up' and she still smoked until the day she died," he said.
"She was a go-getter and far from a little old lady with a crutch.
"She had the fortitude to stare anyone down to get answers, whether it was a government minister or a premier.
"Her thing was not just to point out the problem but to point out the solution.
"She also sat on about every board in Logan at one time or another.
"Ann's vision was to help as many people with a disability as possible."
