Warren — Elizabeth Ann (Reed) Priebe, 87, of Warren, passed away Sunday, April 26, 2020, in Belfast. Ann was born in Lawrence, Mass. to Margaret Elizabeth (Bullock) Reed and Laurence Wonson Reed Aug. 16, 1932.

In 1951, She married Richard Gordon Priebe (d. 12/1/2007 age 76).

She is survived by four children Leigh Priebe Kearney Ph.D. of Stonington, Hugh William Priebe of Windsor, David Reed Priebe of Raymond, N.H. and Edward Richard Priebe of Raymond, N.H. Ann leaves behind seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Ann will be remembered best as one who loved animals of all kinds, especially dogs. Birds knew her as a dedicated supporter in the winter and never did a stray cat in her neighborhood go hungry or suffer from the cold.

She was happiest when riding along a remote Maine road, appreciating bucolic views around every corner or sitting by the waterfront of the coastline of Maine. The wind and the sea made her whole body smile. She was most content when enjoying a table full of fresh seafood, homemade dishes and the company of someone telling a good story.

Her family will celebrate her life this summer on a windy day cruising the Penobscot Bay on the Schooner Grace Bailey out of Camden Harbor.
