The Fredericton university later recognized Ann as one of Atlantic Canada’s leading social activists in Profiles of Wisdom.

“Social activism has been a constant thread throughout my life. Even as a child, I seemed to take the leadership role almost intuitively. Later as a teenager in high school and again in the 1960s as a young mother, I was always involved in organizing one group or another.”
