    Just prior to entering senior care, Ann was a delightful addition to our group of May Basket Ladies for the North Chelmsford Congregational Church for a couple of years, following in the footsteps of her late sister Barbara, thanks to Jeannie Bacon! We were blessed to get to know her, as she was a truly fun person and made those Wednesday night’s memorable! God bless her and the family she leaves behind.
