Ann Ward

Ann Ward was born in Coventry in 1939 and in her words she lived “a wonderful life”. She was a daughter,  a sister, a wife,  a mother and a grandmother.  She was a dancer,  a teacher and lover of the arts

Please do share with us your thoughts, memories,  stories and pictures of Ann as we say goodbye. 

If I should go before the rest of you

Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone

Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice

But be the usual selves that I have known

Weep if you must

Parting is Hell

But life goes on

So sing as well.

Helen, Andrew and Belinda.

      I first met Ann at The LInC Summer School of 1979 in Dartford; she greeted me, showed me the ropes, partnered me in the first session as if she’d been dancing with me all my life, encouraged me and was part of making it the life changing experience she’d warned me …
