She was a dedicated wife to Bill, a Foreign Service Officer who preceded her in death. Together they raised five children: William (who also preceded her in death), Mary Ellen, Peter, Patrick and Kate. They resided in Japan, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Pakistan. Known for her great faith, Ann had a keen sense of adventure and ability to cope with challenges in life. She was equally known for her hopefulness, wisdom, wit and devotion to family.
