If you attended liturgical events at the CLC, you probably saw Ann taking pictures and Gary playing the clarinet. Gary and Ann became associates in 2009 with Sr. Martha Howick as their mentor.
Ann became acquainted with the sisters while she was the Director of Financial Aid at Villa Maria College. She spent most of her career in social work. Gary attended St. Joseph Grade School where he was taught by the sisters. After college, he went to work in the family business, Johnson & Flick.
Although now retired, Gary keeps busy as a member of three bands and is treasurer of the Rotary. Gary and Ann are involved in their respective parishes, Ann at Luther Memorial and Gary at St. Peter Cathedral. They are members of a Marriage Encounter Group and enjoy participating in many activities together, especially fitness and travel. Their most memorable trip was to Israel. They are looking forward to attending the Passion Play in Germany in 2020. As Ann puts it, they feel blessed to be associates.
We are blessed to have Ann and Gary as associates.
