In Appreciation: Ann Ritter Brown

I read of the passing of Ann Ritter Brown with regret.  I worked at the Housatonic Daycare Center (and also later, when it became Housatonic Childcare Center) for twenty years.  Many of those years were with Ann Brown as director.  I remember her as loving her work.  She loved interacting with the children and their parents and the staff.  She was someone you could go to with a problem and she would help you solve it.  She “retired” from the day care once, but willingly came back when another director left and her help was needed.

Many times during the day you could hear her sing out “Laaa Ahhh!” I believe it was her joy in life spilling out into song.

I remember Ann encouraging me as an artist and illustrator.  She took interest in the life of everyone she met.  She would sometimes bring her golden retriever to see the children and her husband, Dale, often stopped in to say hello.  It was a warm and inviting environment.

Thank you Ann Brown. Your love of life was wonderful to see and helped many people.
