Ann Knake Ridge, longtime resident of Anacortes, WA, passed away on Friday October 1, 2021. She was born on Guemes Island on August 14, 1930, to Erma and Harry Knake.
She was adored by all who met her and well known due to her life's work managing restaurant kitchens and cocktail bars - always with that beautiful smile and great sense of humor.

Ann was the epitome of strength and fiercely independent. She will be missed dearly, her smile never forgotten.
