Ann is survived by her brother, John (Barbara) Atkins, brother-in-law Ed Greenwald, many cousins, nieces, nephews and loyal friends. 

Ann was a proud 1955 Hughes High School graduate. She earned her Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Education, from Edgecliff College (now part of Xavier University), in 1959. She spent many years as an elementary school and substitute teacher, while raising her family. She was a former member of the Blue Ash Women’s Club, and Cincinnati College Club.
