Loving Memory
ANN (ANNIE BEE) ELIZABETH BLANCHART MAGOON
Born in Honolulu. 1934-2012.
Beginning a new journey my Ann departed this earth: something facing all of us. Her earliest years Aliiolani School, Kaimuki, Kailua School, and as it was once referred to the Poor Mans Punahou, Roosevelt High School.
Best description of Ann, competitiveness, be it work, sports, volunteer or play. Her career, West Coast Life, Running the Music Corner, Kaneohe, Castle Memorial Hospital, President International non academic sorority Beta Sigma Phi; nearest dearest competition, American Contract Bridge Club where she regularly took em to the cleaners.
However: most important in life, family, life long friends from little kid time, and her love and often forgiveness to me, Jerry her husband.
I, my family express our gratitude, appreciation to the Doctors, Our Health Provider, Nurses, LPN’s, Friends that gave us the strength through this difficult time. We will forever carry your love and kindness in our hearts. To all the others, Mahalo Nui Loa.
Ann’s words from beginning to end, A Hui Hou, unitl we meet again. Our love, Jerry & Family and I share from an anonymous individual: you can’t take the pain out of death unless you take the love out of Life.
