Anna (Ann) Kiesel Packard, 88, a resident of Lansdale, formerly of Warminster, died Tuesday, January 9 at Doylestown Hospital. She was preceded in death by her husband, LeRoy Packard Sr., with whom she shared 48 years of marriage. Born May 13, 1929 in Hicksville, Long Island, New York, she was the daughter of the late John and Emma Kiesel. She was one of six children; survived by Frances Staehle and John Kiesel, and preceded in death by Marion, Joseph, and Catherine. Ann graduated from St. Ignatius School in Hicksville and Farmingdale High School in Farmingdale, New York. She lived in Harrisburg, PA for ten years and then moved to Warminster, PA, where the family resided for thirty five years. Ann was an avid reader who also enjoyed crossword puzzles and fruit cake. She was particularly fond, and proud, of her service as a library volunteer in the Alta S. Leary Elementary School for seventeen years. She loved both nature and wildlife. In addition to a lifelong commitment to the conservation and preservation of America’s wilderness for future generations, she enjoyed traveling to 22 National Parks in her lifetime. Ann is survived by four children; Lynn Wielgosz of Delaware, LeRoy Packard Jr. of Lansdale, Laura Smith (Robert) of Lansdale, with whom she resided, Lawrence Packard of Silver Spring, MD, and one granddaughter, Robyn Smith, of Takoma Park, MD.
