Ann passed away peacefully at Sunrise Assisted Living, where she had been living for the past six months. She was born in Hartshorne, OK and moved to Chicago when she was nine. Eventually her family moved to Cicero where she lived, worked and raised her family for the next 60 years. Before moving to Glen Ellyn, she lived for 20 years in Elmhurst. Upon retiring from Amphenol Mfg., Ann became an avid pinochle player who enjoyed helping others learn the game. She loved to read, and despite losing her vision to macular degeneration, Ann continued to enjoy reading via audio books.
