Ann Inthapanti, age 54 of Newport Beach, California passed away on Friday, June 21, 2019. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Pacific View Mortuary Chapel on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 10:00 am with a Reception to follow at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. Pinjana “Ann” Inthapanti was born 12 January, 1965, in Bangkok, Thailand, the second of three children born to Samrit Inthapanti and Varaporn Pantharukratchedet. Along with older sister Pulichan and younger brother Tarajar, she was raised in Bangkok and Nonthaburi, where she attended primary and secondary school. After a parting of ways among her parents, and her father’s emigration to the United States, her father brought Ann, her brother and her sister to the U.S. They settled in Long Beach, California, in October, 1983. Notwithstanding having graduated high school in Bangkok, Ann attended Wilson High School in Long Beach, briefly, before beginning classes at Long Beach City College. She moved on to CSU Fullerton and later completed a bachelors degree in business at the University of Redlands. She worked as a waitress, first at Norms, then for Royal Thai Cuisine during her student days in the 1980s. In 1989 she married Douglas Domurat and gave birth to her son, Dion Domurat. After having lived aboard their 36-foot sloop in Newport Harbor, in 1993 the family relocated to Bangkok for husband Doug’s career. In addition to being a young mother, Ann then also became manager and spokeswoman for the international Thai modeling agency, Traffic Jam, in Bangkok. In 1996 Ann and Doug parted ways. Ann returned to Orange County with son, Dion. Ann then embarked upon a career in the Orange County tech sector as a supply chain coordinator and manager, working in that capacity for companies such as Hitachi and Jazz Semi-Conductor for many years. Along with brother “TJ,” she was also part owner of Opaso’s Balboa Thai Cuisine, in Newport Beach, during its early days. The restaurant was then successfully operated by her brother and sister-in-law for a long period. In 1997 Ann married Neil Ginoza. They resided in Costa Mesa, where son Dion graduated from Estancia High School. While raising Dion and busy with a full-time business career, Ann was also regarded as something of a surrogate mother to several other children, both from within and from outside of her own extended family. In 2010 Husband Neil and Ann had a parting of ways and Ann Married Joseph Gleason. The two resided in Newport Beach and travelled extensively. Ann retired from her business career and focused on the care of her elderly mother, in Bangkok, now afflicted with Alzheimers disease, while husband Joe was on work assignments as a U.S. merchant marine deck officer. Ann is survived by husband Joseph Gleason, son Dion Domurat, sister Pulichan “Pam” Mueller, brother Tarajar “TJ” Inthapanti, and from her father’s second marriage, sister Tanya Adolph, brother Pridi Inthapanti and sister Dara Zimmer. In addition to wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, Ann will be remembered as a truly and deeply kind and gentle soul, even more beautiful on the inside than on the outside, that brought comfort and joy to all that knew her. She was beloved and will be deeply and sorely missed by too many to mention.

Oh Ann, I wish I could rewind just one week and go to your house and check on you.

I have so many memories of Ann, I will just share one for now.

Ann discovered that our Sri Lankan coworker was an amazing cook. Somehow, a little at a time, delicious home cooked dishes started being brought into the office. Soon the neutral tones of the cubicle farm transformed into the sharing of ethnic foods and the warmth of conversation even when we never know what changes were coming in our high tech industry where layoffs were always at bay. Once as Ann and I were out on the patio having a conversation, a swallowtail butterfly landed right on my arm and Ann was there to see it. We both marveled at the wonder of it. We moved our luncheons to the patio and they were so special. On another day, I was one of those who got laid off from the company, and we had had one of our patio lunches planned. My manager had to watch as I packed my box and ensure I left the building before noon. Dear sweet Ann went to him and asked if I could just stay and just eat lunch with us on the patio.

Ann loved with a child-like heart and unconditionally. I'm so sorry to Ann's family that I failed her. I can't offer you any comfort but to mourn with you and deeply feel the loss of this beautiful butterfly, my dear dear friend.

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4

Ann and Joe are my friends. Ann was one of the nicest human beings on the planet. I never heard Ann utter a bad word about anyone. Everyone loved Ann. When I would see her at the gym, people would come over to her to say hello, all the time. It was like she was so nice that she had her own fans. Everyone liked her. When Ann and Joe got married, I was super happy for Joe, because I knew that Joe he had hit a home run with Ann. I cannot be more shocked and saddened. Words cannot express how sad I am for Joe and everyone who loved Ann. The World is definitely not as good a place without Ann in it.

The things I remember the most about Ann are her smile, her laugh and the kindness and respect she showed every one she met.

Ann's #1's in her life were her husband and son. She ADORED her son! She was always talking about the plans they had for the weekend, or a trip they were getting ready for.

Though we didn't get together often, I will always hold a special place in my heart for you.

Your kindness towards everyone you met with was amazing. I never heard an ill word come out of your mouth. about them. Something I learned from you and try to be like that every day.

My prayers go out to her husband, son, family and all who knew her.

I miss you Ann.... R.I.P. my friend. I love you!
