May the peace of Christ be with you at this sad time. I know you'll miss her warm smile and her wonderful sense of humor. Ann was very special and I always loved visiting with her. The lifetime of stories she shared proved she lived her life well and enjoyed her family. Thank you Ann for being a special friend. I'm sure our Lord welcomed her as a good and faithful servant. My sincere condolences to the family. Catherine Cooper

So sorry to read of Mrs. Farr's death. She and Mr. Farr were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary when we celebrated our 50th at the Cathedral. I remember her well from Sacred Heart School, where my mother managed the lunch room.
