  • "What remains when everything transient goes is love." By chance I came across this obituary yesterday. I didn't know Ann Baumgartner personally, but she must have been a fantastic woman, as I can read here. So I want to light a candle for you. Her husband was my second great-uncle. He was my grandfather's cousin. They didn't know each other either. I am deeply sad that I no longer had the opportunity to contact Ann Baumgartner. Surely she could have told me some nice stories!

  • We are so humbled to have spent the majority of our lives living next door to Ann on Hudson Avenue. Her personality and humor was one-of-a-kind, which made the lives of all those around her so much brighter. We will never forget you, Ann! Thanks for being the world's greatest neighbor. Love, Roseann, Gary, Alyssa, & Jordan Rhone.
