Dr. Ann Elizabeth Jane Abbott (originally of Clinton, Iowa, maiden name Boeker) passed away unexpectedly at the age of 73. She leaves behind her loving husband, Duane Abbott of Naples Florida and a brother, Joe Boeker of Clinton, Iowa. She was the loving mother of Michael(Katie) Kobs, Milwaukee, WI, Peter (Joan) Kobs of Naperville, IL and Amy (Tim) Summers of Albany, NY. Ann was the grandmother to 12 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
Ann considered herself as a professional student as she achieved many academic accolades including a Doctorate in Organizational Behavior as well as a Masters and Bachelors degree in Nursing. These credentials served her well as a highly esteemed healthcare professional over the past 45 years.
Ann loved her family, the ocean, travel and books. While Ann's passing was unexpected and too early, her family is comforted knowing that Ann has joined her loving parents, Francis and Leora Boeker in heaven.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Giant Steps of Naperville, IL or another charity of your choosing.
A small memorial service to celebrate Ann's life will be held at St. Petronille Catholic Church in Glen Ellyn, IL on Saturday, August 5th, 2017 at 10 am with a reception to follow.
