She was a communicant of St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Cheshire, and was very active in the church. Her interests included sewing, traveling, and she was a devoted Boston Red Sox fan. Ann's greatest joy came from spending time with her large family.

Foster of Dalton, Christine Bona and husband Glen of Dalton; two sons, Arthur T. Cestaro III and wife Chris of Louisville, KY, and Ted W. Cestaro of Pittsfield; eight grandchildren, Marjorie-Ann, Melinda, Grace, Glen Jr., Joseph, Payton, Greer, and Olivia and five great-grandchildren, Emma, Nicholas, Kayla, Riley, and Sophie.

Ann was predeceased by her sister, Patricia Cullen and brother William Moriarty.
