Ann lived in Malden for most of her life, residing in her adored home which dated back to the 1600’s. More recently, she resided in Tewksbury where she enjoyed new friendships.
Ann loved maintaining and decorating her home. She had an unmatched attention to detail and a good eye for making things look just perfect. She enjoyed art, shopping, cars and her pets. Whether it be a yard sale or an antique store, she had a natural talent to spot a diamond in the rough and always came away with some sort of treasure. She also enjoyed traveling, particularly her numerous visits to Europe.
Ann brought a life and vitality with her wherever she was and never failed to light up a room. Her light will surely be missed by all who knew and loved her.
