Ann Averill, former Snohomish mayor, gave love, progress to city

SNOHOMISH — Ann Averill was known in Snohomish for her political career and efforts for the Snohomish Library and Future of Flight Museum, but to her grandkids, she was “Grannie Annie” who loved to cook, to get things done and enjoy nature.
Her ashes were being scattered in the Snohomish River, where she would go on daily walks via the river walk trail and up First Street. Averill’s granddaughter, Abbie Vancil, recalled walking with her up First Street, and how she would tell the history of each building or business. Walks that are now cherished memories.
Averill died Oct. 23, a few weeks shy of her 76th birthday.
