Born on October 9, 1920 in West Hartford, CT, and raised in Bronxville, Ann moved to Utica with her parents in 1937.

Ann was predeceased by her parents, her husband and her daughter Phoebe. She is survived by her daughters Ann Jr., Cathy and Meg, grandchildren JB Rinaldi (wife Megan), Amy and Marley Silverman and great-granddaughters Siena and Kora.
