Ann E. Hollop Ann E. Hollop, of Lake Forest Drive, Plattsburgh, N.Y., passed away on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh. She was 82.
Ann was born in Oswego, N.Y., on June 11, 1936, the daughter of Dr. George and Marion (Hennessey) Marsden. She graduated from Oswego High School, received her Bachelor's degree in education from Oswego State University, and completed a Masters degree in education at Syracuse University.
After college, Ann got married and lived in several cities in the Northeast before settling in Plattsburgh. She stayed at home for several years to raise her three children before returning to her profession as a special education teacher in the city school district, where she worked for 25 years.

As former neighbors of your Mom when we lived on Cogan Ave., I wanted to tell you what a lovely person she was. She had such a beautiful smile and a bubbling personality. When I came north in the summer and attended a teacher retirement luncheon, she always made sure to say hello and we would fondly recall memories of years ago. My deepest sympathy to the family on the passing of your Mom. Rest in Peace Ann!
