Ann Marie will be watching over us from heaven with the many loved ones she has been reunited with.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Ann Marie Jarnlof, 89, born on May 27, 1927 and passed away on September 20, 2016. We will remember her forever.

A "Celebration of Life" will be held in her memory on October 15th, details to follow.   

She was an adventurer, traveling the world working on the Scandinvian American Cruise lines where she met my Father, Sven, her husband.   They studied to become Swedish massage therapists then emigrated to the United States eventually moving to Phoenix.  She was always very proud of her famous clients including Ava Gardner, Anna Moffo, and Eva Gabor at the Elizabeth Arden Maine Chance ladies resort. 

She had a huge love for her family and friends.    She loved animals especially cats helping to raise and care for many Bengal kittens. Her favorite charity was:

Most of all, she loved to play FIA (the Swedish version of Sorry) endlessly.

While very healthy, she suffered from dementia in the last several years of her life.  She was very well cared for at Brookdale Trailridge Memory Care were family visits, bingo, and Wheel of Fortune where highlights of her day. 

She will be very much missed and cherished until we see her again.

"With a twinkle in Your eyes, you always got us laugh.
all our games of Fia were a real blast.
That you no longer are with us is difficult to take,
I really miss the oatmeal cookies you often baked.
Thank you for what you have given
Thank you for who you were
Thank you for all the bright memories
you left for us to share.

With Love

Ulika, Jürgen, Jenny, Linda"
