Ann Sherman M. Campbell McMahon (1922-2013) was the youngest daughter of William Ledyard and Sara Sherman. Her father was an early automotive pioneer, president of Maxwell Motors, and general manager and vice president of manufacturing at the Chrysler Corporation. She lived most of her life near where she was born, the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe Farms where she was active in Tau Beta, the Garden Club of Michigan, the Neighborhood Club, Cottage Hospital and a member of St. Pauls Catholic Church. She attended Ethel Walker School and Sarah Lawrence College and worked with the Red Cross during the war, marrying Henry Campbell in 1946.
