Ann graduated from White Bear in 1978 and thereafter was employed at Smarte Carte, Lube-Tech and finished as an administrator for the White Bear Lake Area School District. Ann was a wonderful wife and mother of two children. She was a devoted sports mom that never missed any of her children's games and was proudly involved with helping as a team manager and bookkeeper. She was also eagerly involved in the National Wild Turkey Federation and was the president of the North-Metro Longbeards chapter for the last few years. She was not afraid to get her hands dirty in anything from hunting, fishing or at home projects.
Ann was a very caring and selfless woman who was willing to help anyone in need. She did nothing short of amaze us all with her bravery and strength through her long fight with cancer. Her legacy will live on through her journey of multiple treatments that have only ensued the confidence in the doctors regarding breast cancer research and treatments. Special thanks to her amazing team at St. Paul Minnesota Oncology, Allina Hospice, and Twin Cities Orthopedics that provided exceptional care and dedication to making her comfortable. With them, we were able to spend another eight years with Ann.
