  • Notes 
    • Ann M. Heiss was extraordinary. Exceptionally well educated for a woman of her era, she achieved much in the academic world. A generous and warmly hospitable person, she truly practiced Christian charity in her life. Ann delighted in keeping the increasingly far flung Heiss family connected, always knew just what present a child would like, and was eager to hear about the educational accomplishments of children in the family.

      Born in Newark, New Jersey, to Henry and Mary Lynch Heiss, Ann grew up in a family of eight children. When she was in eighth grade, her mother suffered a disabling stroke. She had to withdraw from regular school and complete her secondary education at night in order to help her father run the household during the day.

      At the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown, New Jersey Ann earned her bachelors degree in science. She became a novitiate of the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth but did not take her final vows. Continuing her studies, she earned a masters degree in nutrition at Cornell University, and eventually received her doctorate in education from the University of California at Berkeley.

      Her distinguished teaching career included appointments at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Hawaii. From 1962 until 1970 Ann was a Lecturer in Higher Education and Associate Research Educator at the Center for Research and Development in Higher Education at Berkeley.

      From September 1966 to March 1967 Ann served as a consultant to the Ford Foundation, coordinating an internship program for four Mexican university administrators. She also served as coordinator of a six-week seminar on university organization and administration for thirteen University of Baghdad administrators, sponsored by the University of California and the U.S. Agency for International Development.

      Ann authored a book, Challenges to Graduate Schools, which was published in 1970. She also contributed chapters to anthologies on education, and wrote reports, papers and articles on her educational research.

      After her retirement from teaching in 1970, she joined the staff of the Carnegie Commission on High Education and became a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California in San Diego. She also served as a member of the Visiting Committee of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Harvard University during 1971-74, and participated on accreditation teams and advisory committees for other educational institutions.

      During her retirement years Ann lived in Southern California.. She participated in church and charitable activities in Sun City and Hemet, California, and in educational programs associated with the San Diego campus of the University of California. Any visitor to her home enjoyed delicious food and fascinating conversation.

      In 2004 Ann returned to New Jersey to live at the home of Carl Dinger, Jr., husband of her late niece, Charlotte Heiss Dinger, and her great nephew, Carl Dinger III. Due to declining health she became a resident at the King James Care Center of Chatham in 2007.

      Ann is predeceased by six brothers, John, Edward, Clifford, Harry, Alvin, and Herbert, and a sister, Helen (nee Bush). She is the beloved aunt of ten nephews and nieces.
