At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

Hi D❤️

I’m not going to speak, but I loved carpooling to Mills with her—reluctant to arrive many days because our conversations were so lively and funny and life-giving. We walked together through some hard times there, always lightened by her capacity to laugh. We visited many times at her house over wine and cheese and she taught me—not just about politics and Native American lives and political organizing and Jane Austen from a whole new point of view, but she also taught me more than she ever knew about what it means to be a person who brings her light into the world and shines. What a radiant human being. I’m so very grateful to be among those she called her friends. I loved her. — Marilyn\

I attended my first PoW Wow at Mills College yers ago, thanks to an invitation from Ann. Years later Ann invited me to attend a series of plays at the Berkeley Rep. We had a great time discussing the plays afterwards and I enjoyed her company and generosity when attending these plays. As the other grandmother for Lucy and Molly we shared our stories of the girls growing up. Both of us were proud grandmothers.

I’ve known Ann since 1963 and loved seeing Lucy and Molly who I’ve heard so much about over the years. I’ve shared my memories on the website and so appreciate all the wonderful photos and music that are so “Ann”… almost got up and danced to Helen Reddy…..oh so many memories.

I met Ann when I worked in the Provost’s Office at Mills College. My son got to meet her a couple of years ago, when he was 5, when I began helping her sort through her papers and taxes. She loved having Brett visit. He loved spending time drawing at her house and hugging Alloicious. We also enjoyed watering and planting flowers in the front patio area. Ann and Brett had a sweet connection. She was always gracious. I enjoyed having passionate conversations with her while we worked together. She is in our hearts!
