Tribute by Brenda Jones
One of my oldest and dearest friends, Ann died on 26th September after a long illness which she bore with unbelievable courage.
She was the beloved wife of Professor Jim Heron and mother of five brilliant children; three doctors, a well known designer and a musician. Born of Irish parents, both doctors, she, like them, made her home here in Newcastle.
She had so many interests but the Civic Society held a special place in here heart. She wanted to preserve all that is good and make sure that buildings are as beautiful as possible. She will be much missed by us all.
