A popular OB nurse at Tri-County Hospital hung up her stethoscope for the final time on Friday, Dec. 18. With over 40 years of nursing experience, Ann Dau was an integral part of the TCH Obstetrics Department.

She joined the TCH nursing team in 1991 where she remained until retirement.

Colleague and friend, TCH OB Supervisor Kris Wallgren said: "Ann was an excellent OB nurse who always put the patient first. She always remained calm no matter what the situation and was a great breastfeeding support person."

Ann is married to Scott and the couple resides in Wadena.

Wallgren added: "We will miss Ann. Her patients always commented on how great 'Grandma Ann' was; she was a great teacher and mentor to us all."
