The service was a joyful celebration of Ann’s very full life. With people gathered from all walks of her life; harpists, singers, artists, her church, the medical community. Two hundred of her colleagues and friends gathered in St. John’s Church and hall to remember Ann and to honour her memory. It was a joyful event which at the same time gave space for the sadness we all felt at her passing.
