Ann Gertrude Fillipp
Of Buffalo Grove, formerly of Island Lake and Lake Zurich
After nearly 10 hard-fought years, Ann Gertrude Hitchcock Fillipp succumbed to the cruel consequences of Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia on February 5, 2017. Born September 4, 1931 in Chicago, Illinois, she was 85 years old.
Ann is survived by her husband Jack “Jake” Fillipp, her daughter Laura, her son Bill, her step-son Glen (Norma), her step-grandsons Dan and Jacob (Elizabeth), and her sister Alberta O’Brien – who all believe that they have been changed for the better because they knew Ann.
She was preceded in death by her parents William and Mary Hitchcock, husband George, brothers Russell (Evelyn), James (Bernice), Joseph (Anne) and William (Dan).
