The following obituary was composed by Ann’s family:

Ann Marie Depman of Willow Grove, Pa died early Sunday morning, May 2, 2021 at Arden Court of Warminster, where she resided. She was 78 years old. Ann was born July 3, 1942 in Abington, daughter of the late William J Calhoun and the late Nellie M Calhoun (nee – King). Ann is predeceased by both of her husbands, Robert D Hertz, Sr (father of her sons) and George T Depman, Jr. She is also predeceased by her three older siblings, William R Calhoun Sr, Marguerite M Simmens and Eileen F Bowman. She is survived by her sons, Robert D Hertz Jr (Lisa) and Keith A Hertz (Michele); her step-daughter, Linda Strange (Jamie) and her children, Emily and Colin; her step-son, Steve Depman (Carol) and his children, Christopher and Katie. She is also survived by her partner, Frank Irvin.

Ann was born and raised in Abington and was a graduate of Cardinal Dougherty High School in 1960. She was the youngest of 4 children. Ann and Bob resided in Willow Grove, raising their two sons. For many years, she worked part time for her brother Bill, a Bucks County Home Builder. Ann and Bob divorced, but they always remained friends and celebrated family birthdays and holidays with the extended family. Ann had a successful career in sales, first with Casidy Printing and then with Horsham Valley Graphics. Ann and George married in 1983. They bought a home on Overlook Avenue in Willow Grove, where Ann lived until moving into Arden Court Memory Care Facility. They enjoyed travel, especially taking trips to Destin, Florida with family and friends. In her later years, Ann would be a snow bird with her partner, Frank, leaving just after New Year’s, but was always back by Mother’s Day.

Ann was a very positive spirit who affected so many people. She was always up for fun, and especially loved dancing whenever the opportunity presented itself. She loved music throughout her life and it was something she always connected with even after Alzheimer’s robbed her of most of her faculties. Music would always get her smiling or bouncing her feet. Through her late stages of Alzheimer’s, she was often smiling and helping others. Although she could not tell you her name or the day it was, she would go up to others at her facility, take their hand and tell them everything was alright. At her very worst, she was a genuine good soul. She would help the staff folding whatever she could get her hands on and just wander to the other neighborhoods in Arden Court attempting to be social. Ann never got depressed or combative like some people with the disease and effortlessly accepted memory care.

Burial was private. A Life Celebration will be at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter, 399 Market Street, Suite 250, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
