In the early 70’s she moved to Pineville and developed skills as an equestrian instructor. She then worked at the Penn Foundation for over twenty years. Ann further developed her passion for art which she pursued throughout her life. She painted at the Pearl S. Buck Foundation many parks and on Monhegan Island Maine. She had showings at the Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton and Stella’s restaurant in Sellersville. In 2017 she exhibited her paintings at the Sugarwood Gallery in Farmington, Maine where her family has a camp and history in the community.
Her kindness and unconditional love profoundly touched the lives of many.
