Our community gives thanks for the life and ministry of Ann Marley Smith Canady.

Ann committed her life to work in social justice. Some of the organizations she volunteered and/or worked for include: the Adult Literacy Center in San Francisco, CA; Mother-to-Mother Ministries, The Colorado Christian Home (now Tennyson Center), Warren Village, Washington Park Community Center in Denver, CO; and Vellore Christian Medical College of India, working out of New York, NY. Ann was an active member in Christian churches and communities wherever she went. She attended this church in the 1990’s, serving as a moderator at the church for part of that time.

Ann was a graduate of Denver East High ’52, and CU Boulder ’56. She is survived by three of her children: Scott, Karen, and Sara, their spouses and 9 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son Craig. Ann was a loving mother and grandmother, and a devoted member of many church families. She will be greatly missed. A service will be held Saturday, Nov. 5, at 2 pm, at South Broadway Christian Church, 23 Lincoln St., Denver, CO. Memorial gifts to Tennyson Center for Children in Colorado or to GLAD Alliance.
