By Deanne Davis

That’s what the sign outside Ann Tyler’s apartment 
says. Ann has now joined the ranks of Angels on 
Duty, passing away Tuesday, May 31st at the age 
of 92. Ann had recently been voted Sierra Madre’s 
Older American of 2016 and she was looking 
forward with great anticipation to riding in the 
July 4th parade. She had even been practicing 
her wave. Her family will be participating in the 
parade in her honor. She was also looking forward 
to the birth of her 16th great-granddaughter, 
Kenzie, whom she got to meet on March 3rd. 

 Ann’s life was one excitement after another, 
doing her second zip-line run in Icy Strait Point, 
Alaska to celebrate her 90th birthday. She was the 
President of the Priscilla Club, the oldest social 
club in Sierra Madre, which started in 1906; last 
remaining Honorary Charter member of the 
Civic Club; past President of the Women’s Club 
and a delightfully sweet and witty woman.

 Ann leaves her four boys, Michael, Patrick, 
Timothy and John, their wives, sixteen 
grandchildren and sixteen great-grands. 
Spending a little time with John, who has been 
with Ann almost constantly these last weeks as 
health issues took more of her strength and energy, 
and Patrick, who had just arrived from Georgia, I 
noticed that we were laughing a lot. This big family 
has wonderful stories to share of their cruises and 
travel adventures all over the world with Ann. 
My favorite was how Ann finally got to take her 
husband, James, to Australia. All you need to 
know is that it involves peanut butter. James, who 
passed away in 2002, was Laura Scudder’s biggest 
peanut butter fan. 

 Ann’s memorial will be Saturday, June 11th at 
11:00 a.m. at Pioneer Cemetery, by the wall where 
the ashes reside. Immediately following will be an 
afternoon of memories, stories and sweet surprises 
at the Fellowship Hall of Ascension Episcopal 
Church, 25 E. Laurel, Sierra Madre, from noon to 
3:00 p.m. If you’d like to hear the rest of the story 
about Ann taking James to Australia, you’ll have to 
stop by. Friends are welcome.

 Ann’s was a life well lived, filled with good times 
of travel, community involvement, service, high 
adventure, family, much laughter and joy. There 
was sorrow, too, as Ann survived the deaths of 
her parents, three of her children, a brother, three 
daughters-in-law and a grandson. But Ann never 
lost her joy, hope and optimism. And, as Patrick 
said, “She had fun!”


Read for the Win!, this year’s Summer Reading Program, 
starts Monday, June 11 at the Sierra Madre Public Library. 
Join adults, teens, and children reading and winning prizes 
through the summer. 

 Children read and record their books (print or 
e-Book), and win prizes when each reading goal is met. 
Children enter one of three divisions: Beginner, for our 
very youngest patrons, who are not yet able to read on 
their own; Reader for school-age readers in grades 1 – 6; 
and Challenger for children in grades 2 – 6, who want a 
higher reading goal.

 Teens read eight books by the end of the program and 
earn prizes for every two books read. Keep logging books 
all summer long, because every book you log enters you 
into a grand prize raffle. 

 Adults enter to win a prize with every book read, (book, 
eBook or audiobook). Lucky readers may win a weekly 
prize and a grand prize at the close of the program. 

 Come to the Library for the Summer Reading kickoff 
event, The Animal Magic Show, on Monday, June 11 at 
10:00 am.

 This year, the Library is combining the Summer 
Reading Program with One Book One City, the popular

Two suspects are wanted after burglarizing 
the CVS Pharmacy in the 1400 blk S. Baldwin 
Avenue, Arcadia, on May 25, 2016, at about 9:30 
PM. As one suspect distracted a pharmacist 
with a “consultation,” the second suspect 
jumped the pharmacy counter and moved 
directly to a supply of bottled Promethazine w/
Codeine cough syrup. He grabbed a number of 
bottles and placed them in a brown bag. Both 
suspects then ran out of the store through an 
emergency exit. No suspect vehicle was seen. 
We are seeking public assistance in identifying 
the two suspects.

 Both suspects are described as males, White 
or Hispanic, 20-30 yrs, 5’07’/130 and 6’0”/160.

 Anyone with information on this incident 
is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police 
Department at (626) 574-5150, case #16002821.

Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477),
