    We are so very sorry to hear about Ann’s passing. She was a genuinely kind soul and an amazing friend to my mother. She never hesitated to help others when in need, but always did so humbly — without anyone knowing about it. Her memory will surely live on through her children and grandchildren.

  2. Patricia Lanzilotta says:

    Ann will be missed in our community of Four Seasons at Weatherby. She will truly be missed by me and my husband as she was a wonderful neighbor and friend for the last 17 years. Keep us safe from above Ann – until we meet again. Prayers and condolences to Ann’s family and other friends. Ann is another Angel in Heaven. 🙏

    Ann was such a joy to be around. Always smiling, laughing, offering to help whenever and wherever she can. She even helped care for my homebound father for a little while. She will be missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
