Sincerest condolences to Joe, Colleen and all of Ann's family on her passing. One of the friendliest people you could meet, always had that beautiful smile and always with that cheerful voice. Her own problems were second to others that she met and helped in any way she could. May your memories help you now in this time of sorrow. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
