Ann worked for the federal government, raised a family (a daughter and a son), was a skilled equestrian, and played both tennis and golf. She is best known to her Kenwood and WDCGA friends for her love of golf and her dedicated service to the game.
At Kenwood, Ann served on the Board of Governors for 10 years, chaired the Kenwood Golf Committee, chaired the KWGA (1985-86), and received Kenwood’s Jack Weber Award for distinguished service to theclub. She played on and captained the Kenwood District teams, and won the Kenwood club championship in 1993.
Ann received awards for distinguished service from the Women's District of Columbia Golf Association (WDCGA) and from the Maryland State Golf Association/Women's Division, which she helped found in 1995. She held several roles in both groups, often in ways that tapped her extensive knowledge of golf rules. It was Ann’s stated wish that no service be held. The family has asked that any donations in her memory be made to the Medstar National Rehabilitation Hospital, 102 Irving St., NW, Washington, DC 20010.
