In Memoriam

Ann Willmann

Jan 6, 2023

Ann Willmann passed away peacefully on January 6, 2023 at 4:15 p.m., in Chico, CA. She was 54 years old. Ann was born in Woodland, CA to Don and Doris Sloan. She was the youngest of three children. In 1992 she married her best friend and partner for life, Hans. They started a family in 1995 and went on to have three amazing daughters.

Ann is survived by her husband Hans, three children Alison, Maddie and Grace, her father Don and his lovely wife Avis, and brother David.

Ann was fortunate to have had a career that she loved. Working for local recreation departments, including working in wonderful communities like Davis, Vallejo, Sausalito and of course Chico. She loved serving her community and working with an awesome team of people to make each of these communities a better place to live.

For the last two and a half years Ann’s family have been supported by wonderful family and friends. The excellent care received from Enloe Cancer Center provided more time for Ann to spend with her family and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the “Jan Sneed Youth Scholarship Fund” at the Chico Area Recreation and Park District.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, February, 18, 2023, 1:00 pm. at the Creekside Rose Garden behind the CARD Center.
