Lou and Family, 
So sorry for your loss. Ann was a great lady and great DRE. Many families at OLOL owe her a debt of gratitude for all she did and accomplished for the parish. She will be missed.

Lou and Family–We were so sorry to learn of Ann’s passing.  She was a great lady and dedicated to the kids in the parish.  Both of my children (Gerry Jr. and Kristy) remember her with fondness.  Even though they were not always happy to be going to CCD, Ann would always warmly greet them and make them feel special.  She made a real difference in our parish community.  You should be very proud of her life well lived.  Best wishes, Gerry Huesken

Uncle Lou, Christine and Elizabeth-
Steph and I are so sorry to hear of Aunt Ann’s passing. She was a wonderful person who had a great care for others.  Although it’s been years since I’ve seen you and your family, I have fond memories of the times we spent together. I enjoyed joking around with Aunt Ann and seeing her smile and making her laugh – the same as I did with Grandma Yeager 😉.  Although I will not be able to join you for the service tomorrow, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless, Jonathan and Stephanie Polking

Chris: I am sorry to see your mother’s passing. It sounds like she was quite a lady, which might explain why you were such a trooper when we worked together at Armstong, doing an almost thankless job for years without a complaint and always great to be around. I am delighted, I have to say, to see that you have four kids. I hope you are as well as can be. Larry

My sincerest sympathy to Lou, Christine, and Elizabeth on the passing of your beloved wife and mother.  Ann was truly one of a kind!  She was fiercely devoted to her family as well as her parish family at Our Lady of Lourdes.  I feel blessed to have worked with her in the Religious Education program for over 17 years and grateful that we stayed in touch and continued our friendship after her retirement.  Ann made an impact on so many people by her devotion and service to her church.  I valued her friendship and will miss her very much.  Rest in peace, Ann!
