Ann passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and friends. Daughter of the late Lloyd and Betty Richards. Survived by her sister Ruth Lifeso and brother-in-law Barry Lifeso of Ottawa. Ann was born in Ottawa and graduated from Carleton University with a BA in Psychology. Ann’s career spanned many years as a high school guidance counsellor with the Scarborough Board of Education. She faced her death as she lived her life: “on her own terms”. The family acknowledges with thanks and appreciation the care and consideration she received from the people at Amica at Bayview Gardens. At Ann’s request there will be no visitation or funeral service. Those wishing to make a memorial donation are asked to consider the Ontario Lung Association or the Arthritis Society.
