    I worked with Ann at Country View school in Verona.  I was so sorry to see her obituary in our paper today.  Thank you for posting it here so we would all know.  She was such a special lady and teacher with a wonderful way with the students.  Teaching them to love reading was so important to her.  I have many memories of our lunch hours together when she would be trying to come up with ideas to help her students.  She always had that wonderful smile.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

    I am so sorry for your loss.  May the God of all comfort help you to cope with your mom's death.(2 Corinthians 1:2-4)  Our heavenly father and creator promises a wonderful future for people on earth and those loved ones who have died.  In Psalm 37:29 He says that the righteous will live on earth forever.  In John 11:23-25 Jesus promises to resurrect the dead.  In Revelation 21:1-4 Jesus says there will be a whole new world where death, sorrow, pain and tears will be done away with.  Can you picture your mom, Ann, coming back to life on a much improved earth where there is true peace and living forever on it with all of you, her loved ones?  There is more at jw.org.  I hope this helps a little.   Steve

    i knew Ann from our book clubs at Julia Hull Library in Stillman Valley.  I so enjoyed listening to her.  She had such a bright and creative mind.  She was a shining light, and although I did not know her beyond the walls of the library, I looked forward to being in her company.

    I worked with Ann at Country View for many years. She was one of my dearest friends at work. She had so much compassion for others and was always ready to support kids and colleagues in whatever way they needed. I have many fond memories of teaching with her, laughing with her, and sharing lunch almost every day for years. She spoke often of her family and her love for all of you was evident. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.

    I feel so blessed to have known Ann for the many years we taught together and I am deeply saddened by her passing.  She was a kind and gentle woman and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

    Ann taught me a lot about bringing literacy to life during our teaching partnership.  She adored talking about books almost as much as her beloved family.  It was always so fun to hear about her grandchildren and the wonderful holidays they shared.  I missed her dearly when she retired.  It was good to hear about her life with Sunny & that she was happy.  

    I send my deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
