It is with great sadness that the family announces her passing at the age of 85. Family was everything to Ann-Marie, and she loved no one more than her devoted husband of 65 years, Rick. Her grandchildren were her greatest treasure, even the four-legged ones, Kiera and Tuck. She adored spending time on the beach in Aruba and on Cape Cod, playing Polish Rummy, eating ice cream (especially chocolate), sharing breakfast every morning with her sister, travelling with her husband, visiting with friends and family near and far, and celebrating the achievements of her many loved ones. She was the best mother, Mimi, aunt, sister, and friend, always quick with words of encouragement and support. She had an incredible ability to provide cheer and happiness, and as the matriarch of a close-knit family, she will be greatly missed She will live on forever in our hearts and minds.
