RE: [Histonet] Ann Preece's estate

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

I found this on a google search.....

PREECE, ANN Ann Preece, born November 12, 1923, in Boston, Massachusetts,
died in La Jolla, April 26, 2003. A resident of La Jolla and San Diego for
many years, she worked at the pathology lab at Scripps Memorial Hospital and
authored A Manual for Histological Technicians, published in three editions
by Little, Brown & Co. Ann enjoyed many facets of life and excelled as a
scientist, a seamstress, a belly dancer, a culinary specialist, an
intellectual, and above all a devoted mother to her two sons, Richard and
David Preece, both of whom predeceased her. She was tirelessly inquisitive,
devoutly spiritual, and full of fun and wry humor. She is survived by her
long-time companion Angelo Anastasion of San Diego, and her cousin Eleanor
Joaquin of Boston. She will be greatly missed by loving friends and family.
No services are planned locally. Memorial contributions may be made to
charities of the donor's choice.

Hi Hazel Horn!

>>I wonder too.   I know when I took my HT registry 30 years ago this year,
her book and the AFIP staining manual were all we had.
I still have my copy of Ann Preece.   Now it's even more precious.<<

Wonder if an obituary will appear anywhere - perhaps the Journal of 
Histotechnology. I don't recall ever meeting anyone who knew her.
