Ann volunteered here at the Research Center until medical conditions forced her to discontinue her service. Although Ann was unable to work with us in-house she still felt the desire to contribute in some way so she then began to work on various special projects from her home. Ann’s contributions to this organization are immeasurable and will continue to benefit researchers and staff members alike for years to come.
Although the Center is not specifically mentioned in Ann’s obituary we think she would appreciate donations made in her name to our research library.
