The ocean called to Ann and she moved to Sausalito, California, there she spent many years restoring wooden sailboats. Ann’s adventures took her to many states but she came to Greensboro in 1998, to help her twin brothers in their new business. Ann worked for Cal-Clean for 10 years then the U.S. Post Office and retired from there in 2014.
Ann so loved to laugh with her friends and family and enjoyed jazz and blues. She was happy spending time gardening and feeling the beauty and peacefulness of her back yard.
