Legacy Left Behind…
Ann, 45, who joined Northwestern in 2012, was proud of and deeply committed to her work, her team, and the mission at Feinberg. She was a cherished colleague and mentor to many around the medical school, having designed and supported the web presence of nearly every department, institute, and center for nearly a decade.
She was a tireless advocate for Feinberg and a brilliant collaborative partner on many digital and marketing teams with Evanston and our clinical affiliates. A graduate of the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, Ann had recently completed her master’s degree from Northwestern University in Information Design and Strategy.
She was quick with a joke for any occasion, steeped in Chicago improv culture, and her presence will be sorely missed. Ann leaves behind her husband Jim Crago and daughters Franny (9) and Lucy (5).
We ask that you uplift her parents and close family and friends in prayer during this time. She has left an impact on the lives of many and a legacy that will live on for many years.
