I worked with Ann for over 20 years when she was across the hall from marine operations. We became good friends . She was a great person and will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace.

During my 10 years at Lamont, Ann brought a bright light and a keen sense of humor to any situation - both at Lamont (in Seismology - "there is no budget for pencils?!!!") and at IRI. She was a beautiful, wonderful person who loved her family dearly. We were all so very fortunate to have her as a colleague and a friend.

Ann & I worked together at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Columbia University during the late 90’s. Ann personified elegance & quiet confidence in everything she did. I send my deepest condolences to her family who meant so much to her. I was glad to have known her if only for a brief time. Respectfully Debbie Shepard

I worked with Ann for a very brief time at the IRI, Columbia University, Lamont campus. She was such a lovely, kind woman, we really missed her when she retired. She was a true professional and I feel lucky to have worked with her when she showed me the ropes at CU.

Ann always spoke about her family and she really enjoyed all of them. She always had such nice things to say about her children and grandchildren.

My sincerest condolences to her family at this sad time<3
