Ann M. Izzard, a resident of Grosse Pointe Woods, passed away on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the age of 80. She was born in Detroit on Friday, September 1, 1939 to Albert and Ann Harvey.

Ann graduated from Dominican Catholic High School in 1958 and went on to study nursing at Macomb Community College. Her dream of becoming a nurse was put aside as she met and married her beloved Vaughn in November of 1966. Ann and Vaughn had their marriage renewed under God at St. Joan of Arc in 2000 with Msgr. Bass. Ann was a very caring woman who while raising her own family also took care of her mother and her uncle James. Though Ann did not become a nurse by degree she was a selfless person who made caring for others needs her first priority. Ann was a lunch mother at St. Joan of Arc Catholic School and a parishioner of the church since 1994. She and her beloved husband Vaughn also worked as crossing guards on Mack Avenue and Anita in Grosse Pointe Woods ensuring all the children crossed safely. When Ann wasn't busy raising her children and providing a loving home for her and Vaughn she enjoyed playing the piano and the violin. She was so masterful when she played that neighbors often thought it was one of her boys playing a stereo. She enjoyed performing with Sister Loretta and her aunt Lillian in the Celebrate Life Ministry. Ann was a strong supporter of the Capuchins, and had even met the Blessed Solanus when he was still a priest. A caring selfless heart she shared with that saintly man.
She will be missed.

Beloved wife of the late Vaughn.
Loving mother of Joseph (Karen), and Robert (Itzamara).
Proud grandmother of Shannon, Marie, and Giovanna.
