Ann was an avid fan of UConn Women’s Basketball and always enjoyed watching golf. She found great joy in bringing her grandchildren along to sporting events and teaching them the games. Family vacations to the beach, time entertaining friends and family, and sharing holidays with all her family made her the happiest. Ann adored her husband Terry and loved her life of 60+ years with him. From square dancing in younger years to going to shows or listening to music at the Band Shell they filled their life with memories.
