Ann Longley Barone, 84, beloved wife and devoted mother, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 29th. She is survived by her three daughters, Jennifer Taylor, Jo Ann Barone, and Susan Bagot, her sons-in-law, Glenn "GT" Taylor and Ken Bagot, and her two grandsons, Jonah Kotzen and Mason Bontrager. She also is survived by many nieces and nephews and friends and neighbors who she considered family. Ann Barone was from Syracuse, New York and moved to her adopted hometown of Metairie, Louisiana in 1958 after marrying the Love of her Life, Joseph Barone. She was graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 1954, and obtained her Master's degree from Ball State. She got her certification to be a high school counselor from UNO and received her accounting education from Loyola to become an IRS agent-a job she held and loved for 20 years until her retirement. Ann had many hobbies, including gardening, tennis and playing bridge. Bridge was her absolute passion, and she was a Gold Life Master. Not only was she was an excellent player, she also taught bridge and was a director. Throughout her lifetime, Ann Barone was known as a fun loving person and was kind to everyone she met. As in life, she has followed her husband of 58 years, who predeceased her by six months, so they could be reunited in Heaven eternally. A service celebrating her wonderful and full life will be held at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Memorial Service at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. in New Orleans, on Wednesday, January 4, 2017, at 3:00 pm.
