I offer my heartfelt sympathy to all family and friends of Mrs. Clegg... I am Rose Marie Proctor... I have been an active member of St. Paul's Church Poughkeepsie since May of 1971.. I am now the archivist. I know that Mrs. Clegg was very active in the Parish Aid of St. Paul's Church... Her name is found in our record books... She was part of the circle that is the foundation of where we are today. That circle included names like .. Ruth Tiger... Ruth Gerth… Janet Ball.. Helen Prichard.. Bobbi Benedict... the Howell family... Theresa Butler... many more that are responsible for our continued success often... I am proud to carry the past of St. Paul's into the present so that it can be carried into the future... Know that we are blessed that Ann Clegg was ours... Imagine the party going on the other shore as she meets and greets all those family and friends who have waited for her to come home.. Know you are all in our thoughts and prayers... Remain Blessed..

I've worked with Ann for a long time she was rough and she was soft but I understand that even though I worked for her she was like a motherish friend too me. We went to alot of nice places but a time I would never forget is when we went to Rhode island with Hilary. We were on the boat, on the bikes all over the city, and on the trolleys looking at mansion. At night we went to The Barking Crab and ate alot of crabs. I know now that she is in heaven and she is happy right now. God bless all of us and let us continue our journey with peace and love
