Notes

Ann was known also as Tigger, due to her eternally energetic and bouncy nature. She was Woozle's close friend and confidant from 1982 until her death, and much-beloved godmother to Anna Nikola. She was also a good friend of Jenny and thereby one of the original "Goresum Foursum" (along with Cindy S. and Erika J.) in the CFS middle school.

She attended undergraduate school at Brown University from 1985-1989, where she joined King House.

Ann had almost completed graduate school at the University of California at Berkeley at the time of her death; she was granted her degree posthumously. The Ann Veronica Simon Outstanding Gender Studies Dissertation Award was established at LSU in her honor not long after. (See 2006 Ann Simon fundraising letter for details)

Some original Ann phrases:

  • Whatever wiggles your guinea-pig.
  • Please kiss your own spaghetti.
