Ann was a cherished friend for more than 20 years. And as everyone before me has commented, she was a very thoughtful and generous person. Whether it was a small gift or a card in the mail, she always made sure that you knew she was thinking about you and that she cared. I will think of Ann often and will always be grateful for our friendship.

Dear Allan ; such a shock to hear of the sudden passing of your dear wife, Ann. Her support, her bright smile and wonderful culinary gifts will be sorely missed, especially by the Friends of Groveland Council on Aging, which she (and you) ardently supported. To almost every event she attended in Groveland, she brought a tasty treat, for everyone (except herself) to enjoy. I never understood how she could whip up those delicious baked goods, but not partake, as she had severe dietary restrictions. And then there were her warm and cozy knitted hats and scarves - she was always thinking of things she could do and make for others.
How she will be missed, dear Allan. And how we wish we could c
...onsole you in this time of deep loss. Please know how much she - and you - are loved by your friends in Groveland.Read more

I met Ann when I fostered their Kanzi, and we became friends. She often told me "You've got a friend for life now!" I had no idea that would be for such a short time. We were like-minded on a lot of topics, and I will miss our phone conversations which would go off on all sorts of tangents. Ann was very generous and any time I would visit them she had something special for me. I will miss her presence in my life very much.

Ann and I have been friends for 25 years. Even I moved out of town four years ago, we talked 3to 4times a week. She was my best friend and like a sister to me. I don't think she realized how much she affected everyone she knew. She was always buying little gifts , baking, or as our conversations went; solving the world problems. I miss her more than I can say. She lived a full life and did it well. Rest In Peace my friend. I will carry you in my heart forever. Till we meet again.

Ann was a close friend for over 40 years. She was always thinking and doing for others. I am blessed to have had her in my life. Ann was a few years older so she often referred to herself as my big sister although we were not related. She was the godmother to our son and along with Al, held an important part of our children's lives as well as for my husband and me. As I've been the recipient of Ann's generous nature for many years, I will strive to follow her selfless example giving others a kind word or deed to brighten their day.
