Surviving this loss are her loving sons, Carl, Calvin (Dee), Kurt (Colette), and Christian (Tabitha) Schadt, her grandchildren, Billy, Larisa, Colson, Nick, Heidi, Alex, Katie, Emmet, Chloë, Noah, and Ian Schadt. She also leaves behind Garret Northrip, Tori Fricke, Walton Northrip, and Grace Northrip, who became her grandchildren. She leaves behind her ex-husband, dear companion, and friend of many years, Carl Schadt. In addition, she leaves behind her dear friend, Gabe. She is also survived by her brother, cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends.
Ann was born to Orson and Marjorie in March 3,1939. With Carl Schadt, she had five sons; they raised their sons in Dresden NY. She later remarried and was a widow of her second husband, Richard Terwilliger. After attending SUNY Canton College and Keuka College, Ann worked as a social worker for many years, where she assisted incarcerated people as an addiction counselor. She was an advocate for Native Americans and animals.
She often shared funny stories about her travels. She enjoyed buying gifts and finding special treasures for her grandchildren. She loved to sew, crochet, cook, bake, and travel, especially if it was to visit relatives. She loved animals, including the many dogs and cats who entered her life and homes over the years.
There are many dear and funny memories of Ann, including her often planning family dinners and picnics, and, at a family wedding, on a train, serenading the wedding guests with her daughter-in-law’s mother, with classic songs and show tunes. Her grandchildren remember her cooking and baking for family meals, camping trips, making Barbie doll clothes, proudly attending dance recitals, and taking them to the Windmill Farm and Craft Market. She loved spending time with her dear niece, Roxanne, and her husband, Mark.
Family and friends are encouraged to give to the Humane Society of Yates County in her memory in lieu of flowers.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
