Ann never knew a stranger and always showed her love and appreciation for everyone! Mike and I graduated together and his mother always had so much love and patience for her mischievous and over-energized son! Ann, you will be missed by many and I'm so glad we touched each other with a kind friendship.

My Aunt Ann was a stellar role model throughout my life. She always made time to listen, laugh, and love. I believe she took the express route to heaven. Until we meet again...

I worked with Ann at Northridge Elementary/Middle School. She was always a very caring teacher with great ideas. She loved her family and especially her grandchildren. We shared that love many times over the years. Peace be with the family.

Ann, you always had a smile and a welcome. Your amazing strength in the face of so many troubles gave inspiration to those of us who are tempted to complain about the little things. We'll miss you so much at 500 Club. God Bless and comfort your family, and may you finally rest in the peace and comfort you so deserve.

God has called you home to be with Jay and your many other family and friends. I will always remember the good times we had together over the years and will miss you so very much. I am so glad we had the chance to talk those several times during your final journey. Rest now in peace and good health dear friend and know that I will never, ever eat another cranberry orange muffin from our favorite bakery without thinking of you. Love always, Sharon

The rope, the trampoline, the parachute, and countless other memories of times with Ms, Bogard fill my mind, but mostly her beautiful smile and encouragement. I always knew that she loved me and believed in me. I think of her often in my life as a teacher. Thank you to her family for sharing her with the many students at Northridge as she is an unforgettable and invaluable influence on my life. My heart goes out to all of her friends and family.

My condolences to Mrs.B's entire DC circle of family and friends. She was my physical education teacher all through elementary and some of middle school starting in '79-'80. " Get off the rope Mr. Wilke". She made a lasting impression on a lot of us I'm sure. Blessed be.

Having been away from Mechanicsburg for 50 years, I came back for a 6 brief months. Ann Byerly Bogard was that beautiful person who I remembered cheerleading for good old MHS years ago. Ann cheered for God those brief 6 months that I came back to the Burg. My thoughts & prayers are to the family.
