Thoughts

Thank you for letting me know the funeral arrangements for Ann. I was with Mary and the family when they received the news that Ann was seriously ill and did not have very much time left. It is very sad news. I will remember the times I visited her in Oxford and on other occasions. The last time was in 2016 and she insisted on taking us on the open top bus, accompanying us on the top deck and pointing out the sights. Later she gave Sam some putting competition in her back garden! She couldn't spend long with us on our second day as she was unveiling a blue plaque, a fact which speaks volumes about her involvement Supplied by Judith

Ann showed great religious tolerance, although an Anglican she would sometimes attend our Unitarian services at Harris Manchester College with husband Richard who was one of our members. One Sunday, not long after Richard's death Ann spoke to us of their lovely joint book, "A Dog's view of the Gospels". Her sense of humour was delightful and on one occasion she told me why she chose a saucy numberplate for her car - it was so that she could remember it!

I knew here as a great , strong woman and character of Oxford. She knew my mother, who painted her portrait which may be somewhere in her house? She came to my mother's memorial service in 2003.They don't make women like her any more. A force for good and so dedicated to her work and our city. Lorna Logan (Wigney)
