In Memory

Ann McCathran

It is with a heavy heart and much sadness to learn that Ann McCathran passed away yesterday.  She had been suffering with Scleroderma but always kept an optimistic outlook...just like Ann would.  While she lived in Florida, she has just returned to Maryland hoping for treatment at Johns Hopkins.  Maybe her body was waiting for her to be home.  May she rest in peace.

My heart is also heavy.  Ann was such a bright, enthusiastic person.  She was also very close to Mike Newman.  She was a person who was key to these reunions, one who always exuded good cheer and reminded me of good times.  

Bless her soul; I hope to see her again, one day.

So very sorry to hear of Ann’s passing.  She was such a loving and fun friend in high school - prayers for all those that knew and loved her.  Life is short, friends - hold those you love tightly!

I am truly saddened to learn of Ann's passing.  I have known Ann since 5th Grade at St. Martins' Catholic School ( Fall 1964), as our family had move from Wheaton, MD that June.  Ann was so much sunshine, she was a friend to all, and a friend to me as the new kid in the class.  She had such a great grasp of Math, I so envied her abilities, and her patience to explain what seemed so logical to her.  I last saw her at the 45th Reunion, Holiday Inn, and she spoke with such energy of her life in Florida, you would have not thought so much time had passed since we last saw each other.

I will miss Ann, though we went our separate ways upon graduation, she was a part of that much simpler time.  And, as Mark mentioned, I too hope to see her again.  Graham

I was so sad to hear about Ann’s passing. She was a good friend in high school, so sweet and friendly to everyone. It was great to catch up with her at the 20th reunion and on Facebook. A light has gone out in the world.

That scleroderma is a nasty and painful autoimmune disease.  Whenever I talked or chatted with Ann she dealt with this disease with so much grace and good humor.  She was quite a model for me and I will miss her very much.
