Ann Omohundro

Obituary of Ann B Omohundro

Ann Radford Brown Omohundro passed away peacefully at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on January 17 after suffering a stroke.  Daughter of Gordon Wilson Brown and Jane Radford Brown, Ann was born in New York City on January 1, 1942.  After graduating from Manhasset (NY) High School, Ann earned a teaching degree from Wheelock College in Brookline MA.   She taught kindergarten in Washington DC before marrying Richard Eugene Omohundro Jr.  Ann and Dick welcomed their son, Paul Jenkins Omohundro, into their family in 1970.

A woman of faith and a strong sense of adventure, she and her husband Dick travelled extensively. Of special meaning were Pilgrimages to Israel and Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Ann will be remembered for her generosity, interest in people of all ages, her quick wit and mischievous sense of humor, and above all for her genuine concern for others.  She was a strong advocate for erasing the stigma of mental illness and worked tirelessly toward that goal, serving on several committees at McClean Hospital in Belmont. 

Before moving to Bradenton FL, Ann lived for many years in Belmont MA where she served on the City Council. She enjoyed swimming and playing tennis at the Belmont Club. She had strong connections with Maine, the British Virgin Islands and Oshkosh, WI. Ann loved her home and her family. She was especially proud of her two grandchildren. 

Ann is survived by her daughter in law, Laura Omohundro Hrisko, grandchildren Kayley Omohundro and Jack Omohundro, all of Naperville, IL, sister Martha B George of Milford, OH, brother Daniel K Phalen and his wife Sally Marquis of Santa Fe NM, stepbrother Clifton A Phalen and his wife Julie of Bradenton FL, stepsister Carol Phalen Swiggett and her husband Jim of Tubac AZ., and her devoted caregiver of several years, Erica Bourne.  She is also survived by several nieces and nephews and their families.  She was predeceased by her son Paul Omohundro, her husband Dick Omohundro, her parents and her stepfather, Clifton W Phalen.

The family is grateful for the care Ann received at Grand Living and from her Take Care team. They also thank Dillon Roberts and the Jennings Funeral Home for their compassionate guidance. Due to recent COVID concerns, the service will be private.
