Cremation has been completed. A celebration of Ann's life will be held when it is safe for family and friends to gather together.
In lieu of flowers or memorial contributions, Ann's family asks that you think of Ann with love and remembrance whenever you read a good book, watch a Rockies game, smile at a child, or smell the first lilacs of May.
We love you mom. You will rest in our hearts forever.
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy
