Ann M. McEntee

Ann M. McEntee, 67, of Fitzwilliam, NH, passed away on August 7, 2023, at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative and Hospice Care at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH, after a long period of failing health, the result of a thirty-year long battle with scleroderma.

Ann was born July 24, 1956, in Baldwin, NY, the daughter of William and Lucille McEntee. Her parents moved to Wadsworth, OH, where she grew up when she was two years old.

She married Richard Marshall in Annie Merner Chapel on July 20, 1997 and he survives. She is also survived by her brother W.J. McEntee of Corvallis, Oregon. She was preceded in death by her parents.

Ann was a devoted lifelong learner who earned four college degrees, including a BA in Literature from the University of Texas at Austin, an MA in Literature from the University of California, Berkely, a Ph.D. in Theatre Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles, and an MLA from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.

She held faculty positions at Illinois College and Allegheny College and taught part-time at several other institutions. While in Fitzwilliam she taught a variety of architectural, landscape and cultural history courses for the Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning at Keene State College, a teaching experience she much enjoyed.

Ann engaged in charitable and civic activities, she helped deliver meals-on-wheel, knitted scarves for the homeless, was a member of the Friends of the Fitzwilliam Library and was elected a Trustee of the Fitzwilliam Library.

She led an active lifestyle and had numerous interests including gardening (she earned Master Gardener status in three states), architectural and landscape history, theatre, music, knitting, sewing, and reading.

Services will be held at the convenience of the family.
