Ann Lynn Henry, 91, passed away on February 27, 2018 after a short battle with lung cancer to be with the Lord in Heaven.  She was at home and at peace at the time of her passing surrounded by her loving family.

Ann was born in South Amboy, the daughter of the late Edward and Meta Lynn.  She lived in South Amboy her entire life and is predeceased by her husband, Fred, her brother, Edward and her sister, Helen.

She graduated from St. Mary's High School, South Amboy in 1943.  It was in South Amboy where she met her dearest and best friend, Lois Morriss.  It was Lois who introduced her to her future husband and love of her life, Fred Henry.  Ann and Fred were married on September 6, 1947 in St. Mary's Rectory.  They settled in South Amboy where they spent their entire lives together at their home on Second Street.  Ann was employed by the South Amboy Trust Company (now Wells Fargo) for many years before her retirement.

One of her proudest and happiest moments was when she was chosen by the Ancient Order of Hibernians to be the 2017 Irishwoman of the Year.  She and her friend Lois enjoyed riding in the St. Patrick's Day Parade.  Ann exuded a zest for life and had a smile for all.  Because of her deep faith in God she was able to be a role model for her family which she dearly loved.

Ann is survived by her sister, Rosemarie Muchanic and her brother, John and his husband Brent Richards.  She is also survived by her daughter, Sister Carol Ann (Sisters of Mercy) of Neptune, her son, Fred and his wife, Linda of South Amboy, her son, Bill and his wife, Noreen of Sayreville, and her daughter, Lynn Ann and her husband Gary Sikora of Rumson.  Also surviving Ann are her grandchildren: Kristen and her husband Daniel, Erin, Fred III, Billy, Paul and his wife Jill, Jean Marie, John, Mark and his wife, Dina, Michael and his wife Alyssa, and grand stepchildren Tom and Mike MacKay.  Ann was also the proud great grandmother of Liam and Maya.

At Ann's request her body was donated to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick.  Ann may be gone, but her loving spirit lives on.

As a life-long communicant of St. Mary's Church in South Amboy a memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the church on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 10:30.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Mercy Center, 1106 Main Street, Asbury Park, N.J.  07712.
