Matturro, Ann - Park Ridge  
A memorial and interment of ashes has been set for May 29th, to honor and celebrate the life of Ann Matturro, (nee Emerson) formerly of Park Ridge. For 40 years, Ms. Ann performed psychic consultations for clients throughout the US and Europe. She was born and raised in Arkansas, and as a young girl the bright lights of Chicago beckoned. She received monogrammed luggage for graduation, and the next day, Ann left for Chicago. She and her husband Angelo moved to Park Ridge in 1965, settling in to raise their three children. All the while, Ann's reputation grew. Police departments, distraught relatives and even clergy members sought her advice. She did readings at corporate and private events all over Chicagoland, and was hired as entertainment on cruise ships and gatherings of all types. She called herself a "poor man's psychiatrist" and loved sharing her psychic gift. When her hearing was failing, she resisted using hearing aids, saying, "I've heard everything." In 2005, she was stricken with Alzheimer's disease, and had to leave her beloved Park Ridge home. She was a friend to many, and always knew how to light up a room. She was quick-witted and smiled easily. Her laugh made the world a bit brighter, and will be missed. Ann, 84, died April 11, 2015, and was preceded in death by her husband (Angelo), a brother (Robert), and her parents (JD Emerson and Velva Lively). She is survived by her children Yetta (Steven Parker), James (Marian), and Greg (Tammy). Grandchildren James, Katherine, Matthew, Angela, Jonathan, Kyaran, Payton, and great-granddaughter Madilyn, along with her brother Frank, sisters-in-law Louisa Boshardy and Patsy Matturro, and many nieces, nephews, and great nephews and nieces. Memorial services will begin at 11 am, May 29th, at First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge, interment to follow at Maryhill Cemetery in Niles. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation. www.alzfdn.org
