Ann’s Story

Site created on April 5, 2020

Welcome to Ann's CaringBridge website. 

Our beautiful, kind, lovely and generous friend Ann is under hospice care at home. We are using this website to provide updates, and to keep everyone informed of the ways Ann could use some help from friends. Please see the calendar if you are interested in signing up for dog walking, delivering a meal or checking in on her to see what she may need (such as groceries, etc) or just to see see how she is doing! Also, post some fun pics of you and Ann in her gallery page! We all know how much we love to see that beautiful smile of hers!

Ann appreciates you,  your love, and your support now and throughout the years of your friendship.

Thank you for visiting!

Journal entry by Beth Foster

Good morning friends, 

Thinking of all of you as we continue to process, grieve and celebrate our Ann. Per Anns specific request, we will be having a beautiful memorial and rememberance of Ann at the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center to share memories, laugh and celebrate her life. However, due to the pandemic, and that Austin is currently a level 4/high risk, the center is closed indefinitely. Given Anns vivacious personality, it just doesn't feel like a large Zoom call can fully honor her zest. Therefore, the decision was made to continue with her initial wishes of hosting a physical gathering where we can come together to honor her. 

As soon as the center opens and it is safe to gather (as Ann would not want any of us to be getting sick on her behalf!) we will provide details of date and time, it may be fall, winter, spring... we really just dont know at this time given the trajectory of Covid. However, until then, do honor our gal by sharing and grieving amongst your inner circle of friends, smiling when you see that beautiful bird or a pair of gorgeous shoes, and cradeling your memories forever in your heart.  She was blessed to have amazing friends like you. 

As soon as details are available for her memorial we will post them here and on Anns Facebook page. 

With kindness and love, 

Beth and Dawn
