What a wonderful woman she was. Mrs Bredemann, as I always called her, was a great next door neighbor of mine, and of my Mom & Dads since 1957! As kids growing up, She would put up with us playing ball with Lenny, tearing up the lawn, running in and out of our houses, and doing all the crazy stuff kids would do. In later life, when my Mom was not doing so well, She would often come and visit, sit and talk to my Mom. She was like the Energizer Bunny! always on the go and busy at St Pascals, or any number of other activities. I will always have fond memories of Mrs. Bredemann. God rest her soul, she’s earned it.
I always admired Ann’s lovely outfits and matching hats she wore to Sunday Mass. She was a great supporter for all parish functions and fund raisers great and small. I will remember Ann’s smile, kind domineer and spunk! Rest in peace my friend… you lived your life well!
Mrs. Bredemann was a dear friend of my mother Lorraine. Their friendship went back to the Luncheon Club in the 60s. In later years the two of them attended many community concerts and dress rehearsals at the Lyric opera. She always was a part of our lives. And when I went back to St. Pascals for the annual memorial mass the year my mother died, she was there and had placed a photo on the altar. We sat together and shared refreshments and memories afterwards. That was the last time I visited with her but she remained in my thoughts. What a wonderful long life for a wonderful person. God bless her.
Mrs. Bredemann was a friend of my mom, Betty. We saw her walking to church every Sunday in her hats and gloves. She always had nice things to say and I remember her laugh. Her cheerfulness and energy will be missed in the neighborhood. She had a great long life, God bless her.
My “Aunt Annie”, what a pip!! And a absolutely wonderful woman. We will all miss her!
