Ann Marie might have lost the battle but not the war. Her family, friends and fellow vets will pick up the fallen standard and carry on with her memory.

From one fellow vet to her family, my deepest condolences. I'm from Wauwatosa (a Milwaukee suburb) WI. What caught my eye while reading the obits, was of course the American flag. Then Limestone, ME. I was in the USAF at Loring AFB (formerly Limestone AFB) from 1970-1974.

I salute Ann Marie for her service and life.

James Fischer, USAF, SSGT & USAFR, 1st LT.

Troy, Nick and family, Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel at the loss of Ann. Ann came into our lives at DFAS. She was Norma's supervisor and friend after retirement. Ann was always there when needed. We watched Nick as he grew up...scouts and fish "fin" caretaker when Norma was out of the office. Our hearts go out to you and your family.
