"Rest in peace, kind & gentle lady! I spent many a Saturday morning watching cartoons with Ann during our early grade school days. I can still picture Ann's beautiful sky-blue bedroom with glassed shelves for her doll collection. In later years I remember Ann as a very attentive caregiver to her spunky elderly mother. Ann was a sweet, quiet and very knowledgeable individual. I'm sure she is basking in the loving arms of Our Lord and reunited with her cherished family. "
