Some of her fondest memories included growing up and spending the summers at Long Point, Maryland. At one time, Ann was quite the tennis player. She absolutely loved playing Bridge. Her other joys included crossword puzzles, reading, and tending to her flowers out on her back patio. Probably her biggest joy was sharing picnics at Clifton Beach with her extensive family and friends. 

A private ceremony and interment will be at Lakewood Park Cemetery. Condolences may be shared with Ann's family online at
