Ann (Davlin) Hartung

Ann (Davlin) Hartung

August 1, 1963 – March 7, 2022

Ann (Davlin) Hartung died peacefully on Monday, March 7, 2022, in Nashville, Tennessee.

She was preceded in death by father, Charles Davlin; father-in-law, Russell Hartung.  She is survived by husband, Daniel Hartung; son, Samuel Hartung all of Nashville, Tennessee; mother, Clare (O’Gorman) Davlin; brothers Michael (Leslie Douglas) Davlin, Timothy (Ann O’Connor) Davlin, David (Kim Cramer) Davlin, Christopher (Suzanne Hartung) Davlin all of Omaha, Nebraska; niece and nephews: Emma, John, Conor, Patrick and Christopher Davlin of Chicago, Illinois; mother-in-law, Delores Hartung; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Mark (JoAnn Magafus) Hartung, Matt (Elizabeth Gordon) Hartung, Natalie (Martel) Bundy, Gerard (Julie Bueno), Hartung, Caroline (Joseph) Vernon, Kristine Hartung; nieces and nephews: Megan (Ricky) Hernandez, Nick (Michaela) Bundy, Caitlin Bundy, Alexandra Hartung, Gregory Hartung, Tom Hartung, Lisa (Bob) Kittredge, Michael Hartung, John Paul Hartung, Ben Hartung, Luke Hartung, Billy Thompson, Molly Thompson, Maren Vernon; great-nieces and great-nephews; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Ann was born in Omaha, NE on August 1, 1963, and attended Holy Name Grade School, Marian High School; class of 1981 and the University Nebraska at Omaha.  She began her career in the offices of Senator J.J. Exon, both in Washington, D.C. and Omaha, paralegal responsibilities with area law firms and finally, in the HIPAA Compliance Department with Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.

Ann was all heart!  Ann was all soul!  Her love for her friends, her love for anyone who had an idea or a belief in something (must come with a beer though), her need for peace (mostly with her difficult brothers), her drive for justice; equality and freedoms for all and her steadfast commitment to her beliefs and faith made Ann a force to be dealt with.  So beautiful. So tough.

But it all began and ended for her with her husband, Danny; the love of her life and her incredible son, Sam, who was the most amazing, brightest light in her life.  She was so blessed to have so many friends wherever she lived (Hi Marian girls!), so many family members (who were her very close friends, too!) and of course her parents, Chas and Clare, who paved the way for all of the Davlins with their love, strength and commitment.

Please know that Ann would want all of us to shine every day and to be happy everyday with those who we love and cherish.  She would want us all to learn from her examples of peace and love and make the best of the time we each have left with each other.  Ann would be so happy if her passing could somehow change the way we love each other and treat each other.

Thank you, Ann, for ALL OF IT!

    Annie was a jewel. When she entered a room she brought energy, love, and kindness. She has touched the lives of so many, and she will so missed. All my love and prayers go out to her whole family. We are all lucky to have had Ann in our lives.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hartung & Davlin family. Although we didn’t have the privilege of being around Ann very often, we do have fond memories of visiting with her when she worked in DC. May she rest in peace and shine her beautiful light down upon us all.

    Hartung and Davlin families. So sorry to hear of your loss. While I haven’t seen Ann for many years, I do remember the smiling and kind hearted person so eloquently captured above. Thoughts and prayers are with your families.

    I am not sure what to say in the face of such a difficult loss. Although I did not have the pleasure of knowing Ann, the glowing way everyone talks about her tells me that is my loss. The days and months ahead will be a big adjustment for you all, so please give yourself a lot of grace. My prayers are with you.
    With heartfelt sympathy

    My deepest condolences to Ann’s family. Working with Ann in Senator Exon’s office was a total joy. She was fun to be around and brought smiles to each day. She served Nebraska and the nation well in the Senator’s office,. She touched so many lives with her kindness and dedication. In my sadness I am so grateful to have had a chance to get to know such a wonderful , lovely person.

    I’m so sorry to learn events passing. Miss you rest in eternal peace. I’m forever grateful to her for helping us when she was in senator Jackson’s office and our taxes got fouled all up when we transferred from Offutt AFB Nebraska to the Pentagon assignment back in 1983. I remember visiting her, and seeing Clare, and lived in DC. She was a lovely young woman. My deepest sympathies and condolences to her husband’s son and all of her family. May God grant you all peace and comfort.

  • Terri Hartman Posted March 15, 2022 5:26 pm

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Ann was a great friend and co-worker. She would do anything for anyone. And to her Sam…your mother loved you so very much and she was so proud of you.

  • Michael Lechner Posted March 16, 2022 11:01 am

    Sincere condolences to the Hartung/Davlin families. I met Ann via family and friends of Holy Name. Ann had a way of making you feel like the best friend she hadn’t seen in a while. Always with the warm smile and loving heart. She was light.

  • Michael Davlin Posted March 19, 2022 6:38 pm

    She was my favorite person on the planet earth. I will never be the same.

    I am literally stunned as I just this minute found out of Ann’s passing and am so incredibly saddened by your heartbreaking loss. Ann was truly a blessing to all whom lives she touched! I can’t begin to tell you how her love and energy as a young girl made a difference to our family.
    She truly was an angel on earth and we are all richer to have had the grace of her presence be it all too brief. My heart will remember her beautiful smile and please know I am so sorry you have to bear this. Love you all,

    I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
    I know I will hear what I’ve heard before
    My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
    And I’ll sing once more

    When you know the notes to sing
    You can sing most anything!

    I look at the world
    And I notice it’s turning
    While my guitar gently weeps
    With every mistake
    We must surely be learning
    Still my guitar gently weeps
