Sending thoughts and prayers to Billy and Regina and the entire family. Ann always brightened our day at the pharmacy with her beautiful smile and uplifting spirit.

I, like many, are saddened to learn of Ann's passing. Ann was always a believer and supporter of Career and Technical Education and the work being done at BOCES. Ann was always present for school events and would always come in early to check on with me during the many afterschool functions that my students and I would prepare food for. Her positive attitude and friendly demeanor will be sorrily missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as you say goodbye to a great...

I have thought of Ann a lot lately. I remember her as I was a child and would visit and those memories carried on into adulthood. It was always a joy to talk to her and I always knew that if she said it she meant it. When I visited NY Thanksgiving 2017 a few months after my wife died I stopped at her house and we had a talk late into the night. I will miss her.

Our thoughts are with your family and we thank you for your commitment to children and your openness to innovative education, especially here at Innovation Tech High School.

I am so sorry to hear of Ann's passing. She was a kind and sweet person who will be missed. She was a champion for education with all of her years of dedicated service on school board and BOCES board. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My deepest condolences go out to the Wright family. I've worked with Ann for over 27 years at BOCES and she was a wonderful person who truly cared about helping others, especially children. I am grateful to have known her. She will be missed by so many.

I'm saddened to hear the passing of Ann. She was an amazing person with a gleaming smile. There are many in the community who will mourn deeply her passing as she was a life of service, love, compassion and excellence. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

My prayers are with the family, yet knowing Ann she will always be there for all of you. What a great person. She was our board member at JD and only cared on helping students. She would come to see me about things so many times to get a sense what was needed for our sides. A kind and giving person who I respected and enjoy so much. I am heart broken. Tom Muench
