Ann Davenport Vasconi of Silverton, Ore., passed away on Jan. 3, 2018. Ann was born on July 23, 1939, to Henry and Eloise Davenport of Silverton, Ore. She spent her early years on the family farm, raising and showing livestock and participating in 4-H. She began teaching in the early 1960s. In 1965, she was offered a teaching position at Tom Thumb Montessori School in Anchorage, Alaska, which began her Alaska adventure.
There she met and married her husband, Samuel Vasconi, in 1969. While working and raising a family, she completed her education degree, which she received in 1971. She worked at Tom Thumb Montessori School until her retirement, enriching the lives of many children. Ann and her husband retired and returned to Oregon in 1983.
After retiring, Ann developed a deep interest in family history. She joined the Mormon Family History Center in Corvallis, Ore., in order to help others learn how to research their family history.
She moved to the Mt. Angel Towers in 2014, where she helped in the library and mini shop and served as President on the Resident Council. She loved to read and to travel, seeing many places during her lifetime.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Samuel; and her brother, John Davenport III.
