She installed this system in many clinics for Allina. As IT Senior Analyst, she was called upon to create reports and handle many projects.

Ann’s greatest love was her family, especially her nieces and nephews and their families.  She originated and planned yearly Klemz family vacations.  Ann loved photography and captured thousands of images of family, friends, and nature over the years.  She loved nature’s beauty and supported many eco-friendly causes and enjoyed biking and kayaking.  Ann loved technology and was always excited about a new gadget.  She will be dearly missed by her vast family and friends.
