Former Deep River resident Ann Bulick recently passed away, and a celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, August 25 at 3 p.m. in the Grays River Valley Center at Johnson Park. Ann is survived by her husband, Dave and her two daughters, Yvonne and Deanne and many friends. You are invited to bring your favorite potluck dish, as well as any pictures and stories you would like to share.

Ann was quite the character, she minced no words and said what was on her mind whether you liked it or not. She was a loyal friend, a hard worker and never gave up even when her health made it very difficult. She loved her family and friends and will be missed by many. Rest in peace, my friend.
