    candle 3Ann was one of the most kind people we ever met. We will remember living 2 houses away from her when our kids were babies. We will be praying for her family in this time of sorrow. We are so sorry.

    candle 1We grew up in the same neighborhood and hung out as kids a lot. We would play inside and outside together. I can’t believe that she is gone so soon! My heart goes out to all of the extended Goldkamp family. Know that she is at peace with her Dad again!!😇😇

    candle 1I was shocked to hear about Ann. I remember when we were little and we would hang out together. We would play games of Tripoly day after day. We would play outside in the neighborhood too. Now Ann is again at peace with her Dad and watching over the Goldkamp Family. My love and prayers go out to you all!😇😇

    I’m so sorry for your loss. This was hard for me to see, as I still see Ann as a darling little girl even though she was only a year younger than me. Your family is in my thought and prayers

    candle 2I went to Duchesne with Ann. I remember her as always kind and friendly with a warm smile. I hope that there is some comfort in the knowledge that Ann, with her dad and son, is enjoying all of God’s promises in the light of His perfect peace. I will pray for her family and friends that they find comfort and peace as they embark on that long journey to where the pain of parting gives way to the happy memories of Ann. Rest in peace Ann.

    candle 7R.I.P. Ann. You were always such a beautiful, loving , kind, friend, R.I.P. I know your son Robby and your father greeted you with wide open arms. Ann God gave you such a large heart cause he knew how you would share it with so many people.

    I attended school with Ann @ Duchesne. I also worked with Ann through my Volunteering with Heartland Hospice. We would run into each other in St. Paul for children’s games or activities, but especially @ the Dollar Tree near Kimberly and Mexico usually around the Holidays. We would each have our cart blocking the aisle while we would catch up. No matter what Ann was going through in her own life she was always concerned for others. God Bless you Ann. I will miss you.

    To all of Ann’s family: Ann was a beautiful Angel on earth and will continue to shine down from Heaven on each of you she has left here on earth. You all have been through so much already. I will not be able to attend Friday but please know that I will have you all in my constant prayers and may God watch over and guide you through these grieving, very difficult times. Know that Ann is @ peace and Will see you again in Eternity.

    Colleen and family,

    I just read the obit of your daughter, Ann and wanted to send my deepest sympathy to you. My thoughts went immediately to our friendship at ASH {even tho I did not know Ann} and our committee serving salad, petit-fours to 8th grade mothers. Such a long time ago.
    We both had 4 daughters and have each lost one so I know the heartache.
    May God give you and family peace and love. Stay strong.
    Will keep you in prayer.

    candle 5R.I.P ANN. My thoughts and prayers are with Bridget and Megan, and the Goldkamp family. When I moved to Florida, I received a card from Ann that I still have and I will cherish it forever. I was struggling with emotional and physical illness and she took the time to reach out. God Bless you Ann. She commented in the card “I have been there myself and clearly remember everything I learned, maybe I will talk to you about it sometime. ” Sincerely and with Prayers…Ann P.S. I am a good listener if you ever need to talk…… ONE VERY SPECIAL PERSON……

    candle 5So very sad to hear this! I remember Ann from Duchesne – such a kind, sweet and caring person, always with that beautiful smile on her face. My deepest sympathies to her family. I am certain she will be deeply missed.

    candle 1Sending much, much love to my Goldkamp family. I can picture Ann as a high schooler sitting on the kitchen counter top as Janice, Kathy & I would be making cookies or suckers or playing restaurant making gourmet meals like Rye Krisp crackers and melted cheese. It was great to see Ann and get to talk to her this past Christmas. She was a beautiful soul here on earth!

    candle 4Colleen and family — My earliest and happiest memories are of our families spending time together. Ann always seemed to be the sweet, quite one of us all.
    My heart and prayers are with each of you. May God hold you tightly in His loving and comforting hands so that His peace may soothe your aching hearts.

    candle 7Sending love and prayers to the Goldkamp family. I was blessed to know them as Indian Hills neighbors and to babysit for the girls. Ann was the very best helper a babysitter could want. I’ve lost track of the girls but something looked familiar when I saw her picture. I’m so so sorry you’re going through this and hope it helps to know that so many of us are praying for all of you.

    I was on the Holy Cross Associates program with Ann in 1985-1986. I just learned today, September 26, 2018, of Ann’s passing. It is shocking and so sad. To all her family and friends, I extend my deepest condolences. Several people have commented on how kind and sweet Ann was. That is so true. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met. Although I have not been in touch with her for many years, I think of her often. One of my fondest memories of Ann was that she would fall asleep praying the rosary. What a strong and enduring faith she had! Again, I am so sorry to hear about Ann’s passing.

      Dear Mike,
      I do remember you. All the Holy Cross Associates came for a quick visit in the summer and I think most of you returned when Ann married. I am really glad that you wrote as. I have often wondered how every one was and what they did with their lives.
      Ann truly was one of the kindest persons on the face of the earth. Her hospice work certainly would attest to that. This past weekend we had a mass at Notre Dame to celebrate her life. Nine of her close classmates were there along with Father Paul Kollman who said the Mass. He remembered meeting her in Colorado when the group went there for Thanksgiving. I think you probably were there as well.

      It was a wonderful celebration of Ann’s Life and I was so grateful that I could be there…
      I don’t know what you have done with your life, but would love to hear from you and to fill you in on Ann and her family. Maybe you could drop me a line sometime. (
      My husband, you may remember him as Dr. John passed away several years ago …I am
      remarried to another wonderful man.
      Thank you for your nice note and hope to hear from you.
      Colleen Goldkamp Harmon
