Ann was born June 27, 1915 in Chicago, IL to Frederick and Minnie (Fredricks) Letke. She married Herman Schermer on June 9, 1934 in Bridgeman, MI.  Ann spent many wonderful years being a homemaker for her husband until his passing in 1989. One of Ann’s main interests was puzzles. The more pieces the puzzle had the more she was interested. Ann also loved word searches. When she wasn’t doing brain teasers Ann would be tending to her garden. She loved to plant all kinds of flowers and watch them grow into a beautiful, full garden.

Ann is survived by her children, Delores Leng of Stevensville, and Roger (Kathy) Schermer of Stevensville; brother, Paul Letke; six grandchildren; nine great grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.

Ann is preceded in death by her parents Frederick and Minnie; husband Herman Schermer; children Leonard, Sandy and Vicki; and son-in-law James Leng.
