Ann adored her “doll babies” Lizzie and John John” who provided her joy and contentment. Ann loved balloons, candy canes (any time of the year, not just for Christmas!) visits to the Dollar Tree Store and Dunkin Donuts (where her favorite expression was “and a little something to go with it”, the holidays and receiving greeting cards for every occasion. She was a beloved member of the Hasting’s Street Home, where she was often referred to as “Sassy Ann” for her infectious, friendly and joyous nature and for her “million watt” smile that warmed the hearts of all with whom she came in contact.
