    I first met Ann through my late wife, also a teacher. Ann had a great wit and always cared about kids, especially my son. Often at our group dinner out, we would split a pizza or baked lasagna along with sharing recent travels. Ann is truly missed and I pray her memory will live on in the many she loved.

    Ann was a dedicated teacher who would do anything for her students. She spent many, many hours making sure all of her units and studies were wonderful experiences. She was a part of a Thoreau family and a friend to many. I am so happy to hear she had a wonderful weekend at the coast before she passed away.

    Sincerely, Charlotte Hill

    Ann will forever be in our hearts and thoughts. She was a best friend for 40 years and we shared a lot in those years. We taught together, we laughed together, we cried together and we had great times together.
    She was a dedicated teacher that always put in that extra to make learning the best possible scenario for her students. She was generous with her family and friends. Always putting others first.
    Saying that we’ll miss her is an understatement!
    Thoughts and prayers to her family.

    Today I heard of Ann’s passing and I am so saddened. I knew Ann from school… elementary through High School. We had so many enjoyable memories from her home on the lake, boating and the Beatles concert in 1964! Condolences to her family, especially Paul, whom I also knew. My thoughts are on those shared wonderful memories.
