I was very sorry to hear of Ann's passing. She was a neighbor and a dear friend to my Mom and Dad, Bernice and Elio (Al) Contardi. I have fond memories of her and Bill growing up on Fillmore Ave. and going through the alley to her home. Always enjoyed her company along with the other Ann, Ann Fordiani. May she rest in peace and rejoice with Bill. My condolences to her boys and their family.
