Ann L. Callahan

June 8, 1928January 17, 2021

Ann Callahan, 92, passed away peacefully at home on January 17, 2021. She was born in Old Greenwich, Connecticut on June 8, 1928, daughter of George A. and Kathryn H. Layland. Ann devoted her life to her family and to volunteering, most recently for nineteen years at Nathaniel Witherell in Greenwich, CT.

She is survived by her loving husband of 73 years, John Callahan, her sons, Jim (Cathy) of Durango, CO, Dave (Nicki) of Fairfield, CT, her daughters, Jeanne Miller of Cos Cob, CT, and Kerry Callahan of Washington, DC. She also leaves her grandchildren, Paula (Rod) Burr of Atlanta, GA, Mike Callahan of Venice, CA, Courtney Callahan of Durango, CO, Ashley (Zino) Carr of Greenwich, CT, Emily Callahan of Ocala, FL, Kevin Callahan of Chicago, IL and Dan Callahan of Fairfield, CT, Savannah Belle Miller of Cos Cob, CT and also her great-grandchildren Nuala and Cullen Carr of Greenwich, CT and Tyler (Kylee) Gabor of Corinth, TX.

Ann touched countless lives with her compassion, grace, dignity and ready smile. If you knew her, you certainly have your own story to tell. Her faith and love radiated into the hearts of everyone she met. Inside her husband’s wedding ring is engraved, “Because God Made Thee Mine”. The family knows that this is true for them as well, that God made her for each of them. She was a beautiful soul who led a beautiful life.

There will be no calling hours and the service is private. In memory of Ann, visit Tod’s Point, the beach she dearly loved, look to the sky and give thanks.

Mr. Callahan, and all the Callahan "kids"--so sorry to hear this news from my sister. She was a one of a kind person in my childhood--many memories sitting at the kitchen counter on Riverside Avenue with her laughing and joking and teasing. And I don't think I ever saw her without makeup and not a hair out of place! Several memorable trips to feed
the horses on the little farm near North Mianus School. She pulled you in with her smile and beautiful eyes and a need to know all the "news".
Will hold you all close in my heart as you mourn her passing.

Callahan Family,
Ann was a great friend to me when I entered the seminary in the late 70's.
I will always remember her gift of laughter and her welcoming smile.
Always, supportive and willing to help her friends and neighbors.
I appreciated her attendance at my ordination in the Chapel at St. Catherine of Siena church in November of 1981.
Whenever I needed a friend to chat , Ann was always there being
supportive, caring and gracious!
May the Angels bring her to Paradise and may our gracious Lord give her eternal peace and rest.
May deepest condolences to the family.
