Dear Judy, Shaila and Charlie,
It is with great sadness that I learned of your dear Mother’s passing. I have so many fond memories of her as we raised our children together and particularly of you Charlie during your baseball “career’here in the Hamlet. I know the pain you are suffering at the loss of this exceptional mother.
I will keep you in my prayers. Sally Ryan

For Ann’s family, we are so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I lost touch with Ann after a few years when she moved to St.Johns. I had the pleasure of working with her for many years while she was at GS church here in Ottawa. She was a pleasure to work with and I missed her very much after she left.

Dear Sheila, Judy and families, I was sad to hear of your dear mom’s passing this week!
I remember her while teaching you at Our Lady of Mercy School. always a caring and devoted mother.

God bless you and her most wonderful memories, Korona Brophy

To the Hearn Family
I am saddened to learn of your mom’s passing. I was a student of hers at St. Joseph’s and in later years I lived nearby. Every time I’d run into her we would have a wonderful chat. She was such a sweet, dear lady! She had such a nice way about her….always smiling and happy. She showed a genuine interest in others and displayed her kindness in many ways. I’m sure you have many wonderful memories to cherish. My sincere condolences to all of you.

My family moved next door to Ann in 2003. It was April and I remembered Ann telling my Mom and I that come July, the Goat’s Beard Plant near both our fence, would be extraordinary. My family consisted of myself, my husband Gary, daughters Caroline and Kerrilyn, plus my Mom and Dad who were ill of health. Very quickly our love of flowers had us communicating every day. I was so happy to share in the beautiful colours of all her flowers. She would watch my dad for me occasionally if I had an appointment with my Mom. She knew my husband’s sweet tooth and would bring over homebaked goodies.
I was so impressed how independent she was with snow blowing her driveway, mowing her lawn, gardening, travelling to Europe, and her joy of her women’s club.
Ann loved life, her family, animals, neighbours and had a gracious spirit.
My sincere condolences to Judy, Harris, and Bob, Sheila, Charlie and family, to extended family, and all who loved her.

Mrs. Hearn was a neighborhood Mom when I grew up in St. John’s as I was a playmate and friend of her daughter. I remember her as a kind and gentle person who was the source of a lot of love in her home. Judy, I am sorry for your loss. I know you are bearing a lot right now. Remember, the Lord is good. Your friend from away.


Ann Hearn was a woman of substance. She was liked by everyone. I can’t imagine Ann having any enemies. She was kind, caring, loving, personable, and that’s how she will be remembered. My sincerest condolences to her family.
May Ann be welcome with joy into the loving arms of he God.

My condolences to Ann’s family. She and I were in the same grade twelve class at H.H.M. She was such a kind, caring, gentle person. May she rest in peace.

Deepest condolences on the passing of your beloved mother. I have always considered Ann one of my dearest friends. She was always an extremely generous lady. She is our lose but heavens gain.

Judy, Shiela, Charlie, and Families
We are so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing and our condolences are extended. Our relationship with your Mom grew when we lived together at the U of T mature student complex. She was a great friend and mentor as we commenced our married life. As noted in the Telegram’s obituary you have many cherished memories. Our thoughts are all with you.

I taught with Ann at St. Joseph`s. She was a wonderful teacher and colleague. I also spent time with Ann and Judy while they were in Calgary some years ago.You are all in my thoughts and prayers Sincerely Rosemary(Hogan) Rocher

Dear Judy, Sheila and Charlie. We are truly saddened to hear of the loss of your cherished Mom and our dear, sweet Aunt Ann. She and Mom (Peg) have been like sisters from the time they first met in grade one. We have always thought of her as family and she will be sincerely missed.

My early memories of Ann center around our family home as she visited often with her mom and sister Maureen. As a favorite older cousin, she became a constant presence and a powerful influence in my life. Ann taught me so much about love and respect, about patience and humility, about compassion and forgiveness, and so much more.. Yet she always carried herself with such quiet dignity and determined spirit.
You will always be a part of me Ann.
Rest well, gentle lady!

I’m so very sorry to learn of the passing of your mother, Judy. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time. May she rest in peace.

As an Old Friend Of Charlie’s, I wanted to pass along my condolences to the Hearn family. Sending love your way in this difficult time.

My condolences on the loss of this gentle lady. I taught with Ann for a brief time at Ecole St. Gerard and had the privilege of spending time with her at Tiffany Village. At last she is at peace.

So sad to have lost my first Godmother..and an extremely large part of my childhood and indeed adult memories..Ann’s mother Mame was the only sister of our mom ..Nan English Murrin….and their closeness and frequent family times together made for a very close bond of love and family between us…their children…..and it has lasted a lifetime. While the years often bring separation and infrequent family gatherings …we all know that love is the tie that binds …therefore I have no doubt that all of our family members that have gone before us are already embracing Ann and are then waiting with arms outstretched for the rest of us when we too go “home”. I am so thankful to my sisters Lorraine and Clare for providing me with the opportunity to spend time with you over the last 6 months . You take our love with you Ann…and have left much for us to cherish.

I had the honour of being in Miss O’Hanlon’s class in Grade 4 and 5 at St Joseph’s. She was my very favourite teacher . Years later , Miss O’Hanlon was then Mrs. Hearn and I was a colleague of hers at Holy Cross primary. In recent years, we were both members of Mary Queen of Peace Parish. My condolences to you on her passing. I will always remember her.
