Ann has been part of the fabric of my life since the year 2000, it is unimaginable that she is no longer here. I thought this picture, taken during our work Christmas party in 2015, was a perfect representation of who Ann was to me. Ann was funny, witty, sharp, naughty and kind, she had a knack of making people feel part of whatever she was doing, and she thrived on organising us all (maybe not all the time!), and seeing how much people enjoyed the fruits of her labour. In my mind, she will forever be telling me something to make me laugh or laughing herself (often because we had bought the same clothes yet again) – I will so miss the naughtiness and the inevitable laughter.
Sending love to all of those who she loved, and who loved her.
