LITTLEJOHN--Ann,

of New York, NY passed peacefully on July 1, 2017 after a brief period of declining health. Ann Littlejohn was an award-winning photographer specializing in travel, nature, and the environment. Since 1984, she photographed in more than twenty countries including Argentina, Borneo, China, Cuba, Bolivia, Egypt, Guatemala, Madagascar, Thailand, and India. Ann was an active member of Professional Women Photographers based in Manhattan. Earlier in her professional life Ann worked at ABC and then at NBC in Manhattan. Later, she was an instrumental player in the film and TV division at MOMA. Ann was the widow of Francis "Fritz" N. Littlejohn, a pioneer of television news. They were married for over 40 years until his death in 2005. Ann and Fritz were well-liked residents of the Village of Kismet on Fire Island from the mid-1960s until Fritz's death in 2005. Ann was affectionately known as "the Deer Lady" for her popular photographs of the island's deer. Ann was politically active and an ardent supporter of women's issues. She was an enthusiastic supporter of Bella Abzug in her successful Congressional run in 1972. More recently she campaigned for Hillary Clinton, both in her successful Senate run, and for her failed bid for the 2008 Democratic nomination. Ann was born in Bridgeport, CT on September 1, 1932, the third of four children and the only daughter of Bernard and Helen Keane Gilhuly. Ann graduated from the Roger Ludlowe High School class of 1950 in Fairfield, CT, and was a graduate of Marquette University. In addition to her husband and parents, Ann was pre-deceased by two of her brothers, Bernard Gilhuly of Fairfield, CT and Robert Gilhuly of Cos Cob, CT. She is survived by her brother William Gilhuly of Fairfield, CT and many nieces and nephews who cherish their memories with her.
