Ann lived in Azilda from the age of 13 years and was in the first class to graduate from Chelmsford High School (1956), and a graduate from the 3-year program at St. Elizabeth School of Nursing (1959). For 53 plus years, she was a member of the C.W.L. and the Legion Branch 553, Chelmsford. She was very proud of the 50-plus years that she was a member of Girl Guides, serving as Brown Owl for the Brownie unit and over 20 years as Sparkle for the Spark unit until she was forced to give it up quite suddenly when she became very ill. She took that setback very hard. For a few years when her children were young, she fostered sick babies; the doctor wanted these babies to live in an active household so they could be better evaluated. She worked very closely with the Vietnamese refugee family that was sponsored by the church and who are still close friends. In 1984, she received the Community Service Medal for her volunteer work. Ann loved to sew, knit, crochet, cook, read, do the Star puzzles, arts and crafts, and going to the movies and other events with the grandchildren.
