Tribute & Message From The Family


Ann Leason passed away peacefully on Apr 16 after 91 plus years of life. She fractured her hip and was operated on at Emerson Hospital and although the surgery was successful she struggled with the recovery given her very frail condition. She never left the wonderful care at Emerson and passed very peacefully on the evening of Apr 16 after being visited by her loving daughter Sherry.

Ann was born in Providence RI to Anna and James Forbes. She was married to Edwin Leason in 1950 and they eventually settled in Norwood Ma and raised two children, Cheryl and her older brother David who died in 1976 from a vehicle accident.

In 1991 Ann moved in with Sherry and her family in Concord Ma and began almost 30 years of very active life in the Concord community. She immediately became Nana to her two live in grandchildren, Stephen and Sarah and of course to the family's beloved golden retriever Tyler, who could be seen driving around town in the back of Nana's car…

She worked at the Middlesex School for approx 20 years and was known to all as the receptionist with the always full candy dish…

She also joined the community at the Trinity Episcopal Church and most importantly became a fixture in their Choir. She loved singing and the joy of being with people and of course she never left her home without being properly attired. Dressing appropriately for any and all occasions was very important.
It is safe to say that Ann loved the Concord community and they loved her. She also loved being able to watch her grandchildren grow up right in front of her and the wonderful experience of welcoming 2 Great Grandsons into the world…Robbie and Conall

Ann leaves behind her loving daughter Sherry and her husband Steve, her two grandchildren, Stephen and Sarah

Condolence & Memory Journal

During her years at Concord Greene, Ann and I formed an enduring friendship. I admired this lovely, spirited little lady's determination to smile - even sometimes through tears. Ann's loving family has my sincerest condolences.

RIP Ann. I wondered what happened to you when I tried to get in touch with you. I missed you weekly telephone calls every week after Chris Foulds Walker died in 2010. You loved life to the full and were always cheerful and spoke fondly of your family, Sherry, Sarah and Stephen and especially the babies. Blessings to the family. Elizabeth Y Foulds (Leo, decd).
