You couldn’t contain Ann DeMatteo. You couldn’t rein her in, slow her down, hold her back.

No one could stop Ann from being ANN: dedicated journalist, beauty pageant queen bee, sorority sister of sisters, karaoke diva.

And even with everyone she knew sharing a piece of her huge heart, the biggest share was reserved for the people who were always close — her mother, her brother, her beloved niece and nephew.

Nobody could stop Ann DeMatteo. Only cancer could.
