Hudson- Ann Coffey, 68, died in her home on Saturday, April 29th, 2023. She was the widow of Eric Weiner, who died in 2018.
She was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, a daughter of the late James P. and Regina (Lawlor) Coffey and was raised in North Brookfield.

Ann was a dedicated librarian at the Marlborough Public Library for over 20 years. She was a gifted artist and acoustic guitarist who enjoyed reading, coloring and painting, Harry Potter, and trips to Maine. She was known for her love of hanging prism crystals to create splashes of rainbows in every room. Known to many lovingly as "Saint Ann," her grace, contagious smile and warm laugh lit up any room. She was a passionate longtime friend of Bill W, and she spent the better part of 20 years lighting up the halls hearts of those who needed her. Ann was known as a second mother to many, could always be counted on for an open door, a roast chicken dinner, and a warm hug. Her favorite color, she would always say, was sparkle.
