Never Forget the Fight

This is Ann's sister writing. With a heavy heart I must tell you the blogs have come to an end. On October 3, 2011, Ann Clarke Dollard was called by God at the age of 47, following a truly courageous and lengthy battle with breast cancer. I hope that through these posts you have gotten to know and love Ann the way I do. A true inspiration, through the end she showed remarkable strength and maintained a sense of humor. Well known for her big ideas and unconventional wit, Ann was a true gift to all who were lucky enough to know her. She was preceded in death by her father, Jerry Clarke. She is survived by her husband of 18 years, Michael Dollard, her beloved daughter Stephanie, age 9, and her mother Mary Clarke of Manassas. She is also survived by her siblings, David Clarke, twin sister Joan Clarke-Beahm, Daniel Clarke, Paul Clarke, Joseph Clarke, Elizabeth Kelso, and Jennifer Layden, 13 nieces and nephews and countless friends. Family will receive friends at Pierce Funeral Home in Manassas on Wednesday October 5th from 6-8. Funeral services will be held at All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas, VA on October 6 at 10am. Interment will be at Stonewall Memorial Gardens with a reception to follow at their house in Clifton, VA. Memorial donations can be made to Life With Cancer in Fairfax, VA www.lifewithcancer.org

So very, very sorry to hear about Ann. I have been reading her blogs since the beginning. I found her wit and truthfulness and her courage to be something beyond my understanding. Your sister has, I'm sure, been an inspiration to many, many bc survivor's....me, being one of them.

So sorry to hear about Ann. She was a blessing to me when I had BC. She always made me laugh and knew just what to say. I wish I could have done the same for her. She will be remembered with great fondness. Ann was one of the "good ones." My condolences to your family.

Hello, my name is Haley. I have come across this blog in my search for the family of a close friend who is in failing health.

I believe my friend Patricia Saunders (maiden name Boudreau) may be the mother of Ann's siblings, Daniel, Joseph and Paul. If anyone who reads this can help me confirm or refute this hunch, I would greatly appreciate it. I hope to locate Pat's next of kin as soon as possible.

My condolences to Ann's loved ones. Thank you so much for your help.
