Condolences for Elizabeth Anne Ohlson

"“There are no coincidences” Maybe I start there – I learned that phrase from Miss Anne and since her passing I have repeated this phrase many times. Her words give me comfort. I met Anne almost 27 years ago when we were both pregnant in Branford. She moved away when Eugene and Brad were 4 years old and Ali was a baby. We spoke almost weekly for 23 years never skipping a beat supporting each other from a far. It is true good friends do survive long distance and time. So maybe that is what I will say here – even though Anne seems so far away from us when we see her again “time” and distance between will just melt away because love and friendship does endure. As for coincidences Anne brought me and Ali and all of Anne’s support system together especially Barbara and for that I am grateful. They all love Anne and now I love them. It is true there are no coincidences – Anne l love you and I miss you.❤️"

Anne was a special person and will be fondly remembered by the Food Bank family. We loved to see Anne come shop at the Food Bank on behalf of YWCA Parent Support Network. She will be dearly missed!

Anne was a precious soul. I met her through SNA and was drawn to her sweet personality. I'm so sorry. Your family is in my prayers.

Anne was my neighbor. She was a kind spirit and baked the best cookies.

Anne you were strong until the end , taking notes with the best pens. Thanks for making cinnamon buns and Stromboli for the office . You always knew what to say to people to make them feel better or had a book close by to share words of wisdom. Thanks for the memories
