Born December 4, 1942 in Syracuse NY, Ann was a life-long resident of the area. She will be remembered for her spirited personality, willingness to help others, and an unconditional desire to make people happy.
Ann was a career entrepreneur, operating several Orange Julius and Dairy Queen franchises across Central NY.

She is survived by her brother Michael (Anna) Jacopelle of East Syracuse, children Jay (Lisa) of Brewerton, Jeffrey of Charleston SC, Christopher (Andrea) of Whitesboro, and Kathryn of Saratoga Springs, grandchildren Halie, Hollie, Gabriella, Dean and Sofi, in-laws Thomas Wilson, Sharon (Mike) Racht, Judy (Steve) Meredith, Michael (Elizabeth) Cartini, and many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
