Ann Therese Prendergast passed away on July 22, 2020 just three weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. Ann was born in Annapolis on August 5, 1969 and in her early years moved with the family on corporate relocations to Virginia, Alabama and Texas before settling in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Upper St. Clair High School outside of Pittsburgh in 1987 and received a B.A. degree from Rutgers University in 1991. She later completed a Masters Program at the University of Maryland.

Her early career focused on care giving for special needs adults in New Brunswick, N.J. In 1992, Ann relocated to Annapolis to accept a position with the Providence Center assisting clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities to prepare for employment opportunities. In 1995, she transitioned to a career in Human Resources and was the Manager of Benefits Administration for GP Strategies, a multi-national consulting firm, at the time of her death.

Ann loved and was fiercely loyal to family and friends. She was compassionate, embraced our nation’s diversity, and actively supported equality and fairness in our society. She was a world traveler and adventurer. Ann was a certified scuba diver, an avid snow skier, and made several sky dives in her bright pink jump suit. She participated in a dive with great white sharks off the coast of South Africa and made a combination zipline, bungee jump over a 2,000 foot canyon in New Zealand. She even enticed the family to swim with manatees after a Christmas in Florida.

Ann was preceded in death by her grandparents William and Mary Prendergast and Vincent and Josephine Salomone. Ann is survived by her parents, Shirley and Michael Prendergast of Roswell, Georgia, brother John Prendergast (wife Christy and son Adam) of Roswell, Georgia, brother Daniel (wife Anne and daughter Merritt) of Denver, Colorado, brother Nicholas (wife Kelley) of Charlotte, North Carolina, stepson Shawn Hornbaker of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Also surviving her is Jennifer Nishioka, best friend from college who was with Ann and her family every day from her diagnosis until her passing, Jennifer’s son Nicholas, and many close friends and co-workers.

Donations in her memory may be made to the Providence Center, 930 Point Pleasant Road, Glen Burnie, Maryland 21060 or a charity of your choice.

A celebration of Ann’s life will be scheduled after the COVID pandemic recedes and Ann decreed that there be no sadness or tears or wearing black.

I am deeply saddened with the news of Ann’s passing. She was a remarkable woman from the day i met her in 1995 at GP Strategies. This picture is from around 2004 at GP..,., Ann always stood out and this picture is no exceptions. My deepest sympathy to her family, GP family and friends

Mike and Family,

I am heart sick to learn of the passing our your beloved daughter. I cherish those early morning conversations at USS. We often discussed each others families and you were so humble and proud of yours. You looked so forward to spending time with each of them and I remember your excitement to ski with your daughter at Deep Creek. The Fix's extend our deepest sympathies to all of you.

Martin, Linda and April Fix

I worked with Ann for almost 20 years at GP Strategies, and she was a daily part of my life there. She worked hard to provide the best benefits possible to our employees, and was a champion for diversity and equality. Some things that always made me smile about Ann: her love of Halloween decorations, her vocal support of my transgender daughter, and her awesome collection of shoes! Her love of travel and adventure was an inspiration, and I'll never forget our fantasy of retiring together in Costa Rica where we would share a house by the beach. You will be sorely missed, my dear friend.
