It is with great sadness that we report that Courier Advertising Director Ann Whitehill passed away suddenly last weekend. Ann resided in the Niwot-Gunbarrel area for many years and worked for the Courier for over three years, helping the Courier and its advertisers navigate through the pandemic. Selene Luna, who worked closely with Ann on the Courier, expressed our thoughts well: “I will truly miss that special lady. We had some challenging times at the paper, but we worked through them together. When we met a special challenge with success we would celebrate with a sip or two of her favorite tequila. She loved life, her friends, her gardening, her bike riding and swimming. She was a joy to know and a very special friend.” No word concerning arrangements has been received.
