Ann Tyler 

Honored as Sierra 
Madre’s Older 
American of The 


 The Sierra Madre Senior 
Community Commission 
and the community 
at large paid tribute to 
longtime volunteer Ann 
Tyler. Ann, at 92 years 
of age, richly deserves this 
honor, due to her active 
involvement in many of 
the volunteer groups in 
our city. She has been a 
resident for over 70 years 
and can look back on her 
many years of service as 
an integral member of 
our community. 


Recognizing the contributions of Older Americans in 
this society, President John F. Kennedy established the 
nationwide recognition in 1963. Honorees in each city 
are recognized at the city level, and Ann Tyler will join 
other Older Americans from all over LA County and 
receive further recognition from the Board of Supervisors. 
Additional activities will take place in Sacramento 
and recipients also have the opportunity to be 
honored at the White House.
