Memories Timeline


  1. My Condolences to you Uncle Fran and family. I am glad I had the chance to meet Ann. You know she is with George and the rest of the Romance clan in Heaven. My love to all Cliff

  2. How could I forget the cookie boxes Ann sent Mary during college – being Mary’s friend had its advantages! And I have Ann to thank for my first trip to a French restaurant. Ann was always such a loving and doting mother – even to her “adopted” kids like me. Her warm and cheerful personality was ever present and the foundation for her wonderful and prolific family – she will be so missed. I’m happy I got to know her and enjoy her hospitality on trips to D.C. Especially glad we had a chance to reconnect a few years ago. Thank you, Ann, for Mary (and all your wonderful kids), being such a kind and caring soul, and spreading your optimism and love to everyone you met. My thoughts and prayers are with Fran, Mary, Chris, Julie and Kevin (and grandkids) now. I hope your wonderful memories of “Mom” will ease your grief. She wouldn’t want you suffer – ever practical, she would have counseled you to remember the good times and get through this difficult time quickly and together. Love, Lisa

  3. With theBlessings of a good, full, and giving life comes the sadness and void of loss. May God’s love make your grief bearable. Ann will once again be able to take care of her brother who always looked up to her. God Bless us all!

  4. Dear Frank I was saddened to learn of Ann’s death. I will always remember her sitting in the living room when I came by. You will be in my prayers!

  5. Anne, was a true possitive friend to us. Will miss her her gracious and generous spirit. We remember warmly the 4th of July Celebrations we share together. We love you Anne, and we wish the family solace for there grief. May she rest in Eternal Peace. Love Matt and Maria Van Order

  6. Decades of time and continental width separated our visits, though each created wonderful family memories. Recalling the vacations with Dad and Mom (George & Edna) as a kid, then later with my family (Cindy, Ciara, Cameron), the warmth of Aunt Ann and Uncle Fran was genuine and comfortable. We will truly miss you Aunt Ann.
