Aunt Ann married my great-uncle, George. I will remember her as being so fleet of foot and always smartly dressed. She loved to shop at Talbots. We all fondly remember her visits with us in Pittsburgh over the holidays and how quickly and precisely she could roll meatballs. She set an example on how not to get old. Ann took loving care of her parents and husband, and spent countless hours volunteering at her church. She will be forever in our hearts. Love, Lynn
