She was involved with the Camp Fire Girls throughout her life, including as Blue Bird leader and assisting with the preservation and restoration of Camp Namanu. She was an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta, hosting several luncheons for her sorority sisters through the years.
Ann spent her last years under the wonderful loving care at Pacifica Senior Living in McMinnville.
