My sincere sympathy for Bob and the family. Ann and I grew up as farm community neighbors who attended the same parochial school at Assumption St. Mary's . I remember her as quiet,
friendly, and hard working. May she Rest In Peace with our Lord..

It is with deep sadness I learned of the passing of Ann. I remember Ann as a wonderful and loving companion to Bob and loving mother to a great bunch of kids. How she did her magic to hold it all together, I don't know but I know she will be missed by all who knew her.
