Obituary for Ann Dee Eschtruth

Ann Dee (Muellerweiss) Eschtruth, 3 weeks shy of her 80th birthday, left for a better place on July 15. Ann had a lifelong love affair with words: clever words and their origins, plays on words, contemplative words, words layered in their meaning. She wrote this poem while at the confluence of lakes Huron and Michigan.

Synchrony

Sitting silently on shore
Seeing wave crests glide

Listening to the surf’s soft sigh
I meditate the tide.

I watch the waters wash & ebb,
Its ceaseless harmony

I would that rhythm would reflect
Its synchrony in me.

---

Ann is loved by her husband Walt of 58 years; sons Phil (Gayle) and Andy (Elana); grandchildren Ari, Rose, Mira, and Renee; sister Mary and brother-in-law George; as well as nephews.
