Ann, of East Hartland, Hartland County, Conn., and Winsted, Litchfield County, Conn., died Jan. 1, 2020. She was born Sept. 26, 1927, the youngest of Samuel and Cecilia Milligan's 13 children, in Cascade, Coos County, N.H. Ann and her late sister Margie were the best of friends, playing basketball in an age when girls could only play half-court so as not to overly exert themselves. During the summers of World War II they'd slather on baby oil (with a drop of iodine) and go dancing with soldiers on the piers at Old Orchard Beach in Maine. Ann attended a secretarial college in Northampton, Hampshire County, Mass., and served as a nanny for a young minister's family to pay her room and board. She met and married Elliot "Hodie" Lester Parmelee [Gladwin Earle, Hubert "Burt," Frederick H., Sylvester, Nathaniel, Elihu, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John] who was a close friend of Margie's husband, Gordon. For decades, the couples lived a mile apart and shared many adventures--and pranks. Shortly after their marriage in 1948, Ann and Hodie moved out west so he could attend the University of Denver. Ann worked as the executive secretary for the president of General Motors, covering their expenses that the GI Bill did not and supplying the couple with sleek new cars. After they returned to East Hartland, Ann supported Hodie in his community service efforts in town. No slacker herself, Ann was a member of the Ladies Aid Auxiliary and the Lions Club, a Cub Scout den mother and a secretary at Hartland Elementary School and several architectural firms. Ann was a friendly, flirty extrovert and young architects who'd talked to her on the phone often were surprised to come into the office and meet someone who could be their grandmother! Ann never left the house without putting on pink lipstick ("You never know when you are going to meet the queen!") and was known to celebrate with a shot of Bailey's. Her adult onset diabetes was a testament to a lifelong love of sweets, especially carrot cake, which had to be ordered when it appeared on a dessert menu because that was a sign from God. Ann loved to travel, having gone on adventures to Hawaii, Prince Edward Island, Virginia and summers at the Wright cottage in New Hampshire. Survivors include sons Jeffrey and James, five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by son Jonathan. The Hayes-Huling & Carmon Funeral Home of Granby was in charge of arrangements. Memorial donations can be made to the Hartland Lion's Club Scholarship Fund, c/o Diana Evans, 66 Skaret Road, East Hartland, CT 06027.
