Since Ann became “Nana”, she loved going to beach with her grandkids. Sitting on the sand, laying in the sun, and swimming in the ocean were would always bring a smile to her face. She never missed an opportunity to be with her grandkids; going out lunch, playing in the backyard, watching them on the football field and so much more.
Ann had a strong love of family. She loved going to family gatherings and celebrating all special occasions, big or small. Ann always put others before herself and cared deeply for her family and friends. Whenever there was a family get together, after going home she would make a trip back to her
mom’s house and spend some quiet time with her when everyone else had left for the night. It was their own time together.
She loved serving in her church, The Natick Church of Christ, where she attended for over 40 years. She loved serving the Lord in anyway; whether helping in the nursery, cooking meals for potlucks or teaching Sunday school, it was important to her to help in any way she could.
