Ann (Olmscheid) Thomes, age 61, passed away June 18th, 2022. She lived up north in Longville, MN during retirement. Ann graduated from Edina West High School, University of Minnesota Duluth and Hamline University for her reading and writing license. Preceded in death by parents John W. and Rosie Olmscheid. Ann is survived by her husband Chris Thomes, children Jaclyn and Jessica, brother John C. (Becky) Olmscheid, Megan, Grant, Ryan, granddaughter Evelyn, cousin Ellen Olmscheid, other cousins, relatives and many close friends, all of whom will miss her energy and love.
Ann loved to laugh, have fun, travel, enjoy live music and spend time in the sun - whether on a tropical beach, on a boat on the lake or on a hammock on the porch. She valued those in her life deeply and loved connecting with people. She had a passion for teaching, art, writing and animals. She was very connected to the earth and spirituality. Nothing made her happier than her 2-year-old granddaughter, Evelyn. She will be dearly missed.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made out to “American Funds” for Evelyn’s 529 College Plan. Mail to Jaclyn at 1907 W 84th St, Bloomington, MN 55431.
