Ann Connor was born in New York City, New York, (Greenwich Village) on November 17, 1901 to Elizabeth (Lizzie)(McDonald) Smithline, and Charles Francis Smithline. Her birth name given was Anny Smithline, but she went by Ann. She married Richard Patrick Connor, (date not known) and had three children: June Marie, Gloria Anna, and Richard Patrick Connor, Jr.
Anny's husband Richard owned two businesses in Astoria, Long Island New York: Dick's Coffee Pot and Dick's Tavern, and she helped run the businesses with her husband.
On April 30, 1941 her husband died of tuberculosis and Anny succumbed to the same disease just 8 short months later.
Anny's daughter Gloria was my mother, and my mother named me after her. My mother was a wonderful mother and she shared all of the humorous and poignant stories of her childhood with me. I never met my grandmother but I feel as though I had.

A couple of stories that I would like to share, are a couple of which my mother told me about my grandmother. My grandmother loved music, which has passed through each generation, and one of her favorite songs that she listened to quite often was,"WHEN SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES." My mother also mentioned that her mother cried every time it played.
The second is how my mother was named Gloria. My grandmother loved music, broadway shows, and movies, and one of her favorite actresses was Gloria Swanson. There you have it, my mother was named after Gloria Swanson.
I personally feel like my grandmother might have been told that she resembled Gloria Swanson, therefore she liked her.
