She has lived in San Francisco, CA where she had her own business as an event planner, Naples and Vero FL and most recently, Skaneateles, NY.
She was born to Jack Rehm and Ann McCarthy Rehm who predeceased her. She had three siblings Jack Rehm (who passed away on December 27, 2022), Virginia Rehm Tehan (passed away on July 3, 2013) and Linda Rehm Nyselius (Ron) survives.
She is also survived by seven nieces, and two nephews: Karyn Marshall (Bastiansen Tehan), Jeryl Alibrandi (Tehan) (James) (two children), and William (Whit) (two children), Karen McAvoy (Brust) (Brett) (two children), Liz Rehm Wooster (Richard), (three children), Ann Melissa Rehm Pulver (Scott), (three children), Cindy Rehm and J.D Rehm (Kathy) and their five children, and several great and great-great nieces and nephews. Her niece, Elizabeth (on Huntley’s side) also survives her).
Ann was married to Huntley Bennett who predeceased her. He had two daughters, Anne (Tom) who predeceased her and Nancy Phillips (Fern) (Bennett) (Scott/Scooter). They each have two girls. Ann was very close to all of them and the “children” and “grandchildren” became her very own
She leaves behind the 2nd love of her life, Bob Ward. They both enjoyed playing tennis. Even when Ann was sick, she couldn’t wait to play tennis again.
Ann traveled the world. Her first encounter to Italy was with her best friend, Roseann McGordy. While she and Hunt were married, they went on a So. American cruise for 3 months.
Ann’s crowning achievement in event planning was creating a five-star experience for top corporate executives at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
She loved life and was rewarded with many friends. She had a way of making you feel good and through her sense of humor (known as the McCarthy sense of humor), we would always share a good laugh.
There will be no services.
