Though I last saw Ann 40 years ago, the memory of her vibrant personality is still fresh for me. I treasure the times we had together and I will miss her
I was saddened to hear my friend of 65 years had died. I particularly remember our times at U of Michigan, gatherings at the horse races, and her letters from Italy.
One of the best things that happened to me in high school was the Wright family moving in down the street. I acquired a best friend, Joan, and an example of a brilliant light source, Joan's mom. Her light and life filled any room. Just knowing her opened my eyes to new ways of thinking, of being. Sending love to the family...yesterday, today and always
I first met Ann at Grace Episcopal Church in Middletown, NY when she was a nun at OSH. We shared the rollercoaster of our spiritual lives. I often thought of her . I am sorry for your loss but oh
weren't we all blessed to love her and be loved by her?! She certainly
enriched my life.
Ann will always be remembered for her wonderul
frank personality. I will miss her presence in
this world. She was such a force in everyone's
life whom knew her. I will MISS her deeply.
Ann was a long-time member of our book club which we called, LMI (Like-Minded-Intellectuals); we missed her when she had to drop out a year ago due to her declining health. I visited her last spring in her lovely home on the creek and she was cracking jokes and being her witty and intelligent self. We talked about our shared love of reading and books. She had a great outlook on her journey ahead. I will always remember her strength of character and value her friendship.

Ann was a remarkable lady who lived a remarkable life. How many of us can claim the same?
Had the privilege of working with Ann at

Italy. Such a wonderful life and legacy.

Dear Marnie and Family,
What an amazing life your mother had! I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.
I first met Ann in 1987 when we were both doing work related to the AIDS epidemic. Ann was working at the UCSD Owen Clinic. I was so impressed with her passion and dedication. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I would join her family years later through my marriage. I always respected her opinions and was proud to be a fellow Social Worker.
