It is with great sadness that I share the news that Ann Scott, my neighbor and friend for a quarter century, died at the beginning of October.
She will be remembered for the lilting laugh that punctuated her conversation and her irrepressibly buoyant good spirits. She and her partner of many years, John Quinn, were fixtures on the Hudson scene--dining out, attending events and gatherings (the Opera House ball was one of their favorites), enjoying each other's company, and reveling in life. In recent years, Ann suffered mobility issues that required the use of a walker, but she remained indomitable. Fiercely independent, she preferred driving herself to being driven places by others. She might arrive at an event late--indeed, she redefined fashionably late--but when she did arrive, she always made an entrance--impeccably coiffed, beautifully dressed, and exuding warmth and charm.
A memorial and celebration of Ann's life, hosted by her son, Randy, is planned for Sunday, November 18, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. in the West Room at Hudson Hall, 327 Warren Street.
