Ann Marie was a very special woman and a thoughtful and caring neighbor who many times went out of her way to check up on us and to "feed" us. She always had a smile and a story to tell. She will be dearly missed although we know that she will continue to smile down on us from up above. Her family will always be in our prayers and we wish them the peace of God as the days pass.

I have known Ann-Marie since before her kids were born and in that time I came to know her as a caring, kind, and helpful person. She was one of the good ones. We will miss her.

Ann Marie has been a dear family friend since our boys were in elementary school together. Cherished memories of camping, playing cards, enjoying a meal out with our families, or watching our kids compete in sports will never fade. Our time spent with Ann Marie was full of fun and laughter. We will miss her. Doug, Jeffrey, and Anna-you are in our thoughts and prayers. May your memories give you peace and comfort.
