Condolence & Memory Journal

I am very sorry to read that Ann has passed away. I came to know her in July 2018 as a guest and returned in spring 2019 to her place from Switzerland. In this short amount of time, I came to know her exactly as you described her. Due to the Corona situation, contact was not possible and it is very sad to find out that there will be no further visit to her home. I truly liked her as a dear friend and will carry the blouse from her daughter Heather, with which she gifted me, with even more respect.
Does she have a grave to visit?
With my best wishes to her family
Andrea from Switzerland

We got to know Ann as the spunky representative of Bedford TV who, always with a smile and a joke, happily filmed and then edited many of the historical programs presented by the Bedford HIstorical Society. This led Ann to join the Society, and she came to the Society's annual holiday parties, held in our Bedford home, to enjoy the social nature of these events, but also, so typical of Ann, to help Carol in the kitchen -- making sure that platters of hors d'oeuvres were distributed among the party rooms and passed out to individual guests. When problems at Hanscom Field got Ann involved in fights over them, Bill joined with Ann and others to commit his time and effort, as a Bedford Selectman, to fight on her behalf. Ann's persistence and will always made her friends WANT to assist her, but it was easy as she was always on the right side of issues. We were so distressed when we learned of her illness, and heart broken when she passed away. But there is relief knowing that her pain is gone, and that she's drinking a G&T in heaven, relieved by the outcome of the election. Rest in peace, Ann. We love you, Carol Amick and Bill Moonen

We laughed so much my friend. Steve and I are heartbroken. That spot by the pool you loved will always be yours. I remember the last bonfire and night swim we shared, when Steve led a toast to "The Summer of Ann." It was. It was The Summer of Ann. Grateful for the time together.

I met Ann when she and Heather attended a Symposium my organization was hosting for ovarian cancer. From that day forward, a friendship was born. I will miss her laugh, her amazing cocktails and her friendship dearly. Tonight I will have a gin and tonic in her memory. Love you Ann!

Ann will be sadly missed; to know her was to love her and her soul, filled with kindness and generosity, hope and love, determination and humor, strength and dedication. My deepest sympathy to her family and her many friends, we're all going to miss the bright light that she brought to our lives. Love you Ann.

I first met Ann and Heather and Sid a few years before the Beatles broke up. I was always amazed that Ann lived in the moment, though. She was perfectly happy reminiscing, but got really animated when discussing her current friends and adventures. And any adventure involving her best friend Heather was shared with gusto. One of my happiest memories is pub-crawling through a part of London new to us. Until Heather realized that pub crawls are heavy on chatting, light on cheeseburgers and Hard Rock Cafe. Which inexorably led us to become friendly with the staff at an Indian food restaurant above a great pub. And Ann never stopped laughing. I am so sorry that your family is suffering through this tragedy.
