Ann was so kind and caring. Her smile welcomed everyone who came to the library. I helped her many summers with the 4th of July “Paint In” for AAUW. She organized everything for the children...paint, clothespins, clothes line, paper towels, water, easels. She thought of everything. Ann’s kindness and caring personality will be missed by so many.
Sending sympathy to her family.
