It deeply saddens us to share that former Bridgewell Board member Ann Cohen passed away this past Tuesday, December 17th. Ann was an extraordinary person. She was a volunteer at Bridgewell’s Friendship Club for many years before joining the Bridgewell Board of Directors. She was also a member of the Program Committee, a subcommittee of the Board of Directors, and the Gala Committee during her terms on the Board. After her terms were over, she volunteered to work in one of the classrooms at Rosewood. She was a former teacher and loved her work with the young adults with autism.
A friend described her as “an energizer bunny with a heart bigger than the far horizons and compassion and caring deeper than the oceans.” That describes Ann perfectly! She cared so much for people and she had a special place in her heart for people with disabilities. She will be missed by so many people since she touched the lives of so many.
