In Memoriam | Anne Granum

“The HTM community lost another wonderful human being,” the LinkedIn post read.

Everyone who met Anne Granum knew she was fiercely loyal and independent. She loved her family and friends unconditionally. She dedicated her life to helping alcoholic women and men start a path toward sobriety. She guided them to a relationship with a higher power.

Anne loved spending time with her family. She is survived by her husband, Clay, and her 5 children – Katie, Kelly, James, P.J. and Rocky. Her heart was always with her 4 grandchildren – Landon, Savannah, Ashton and Delilah. Her family will miss her dearly.

Many in the HTM industry are feeling loss at the news of her death. She had more than 30 years of experience in healthcare technology management with a focus on imaging equipment. However, her successful career did not define her. She was an outgoing, strong, brave and caring person. The LinkedIn post by Christopher Nowak was one of many about this amazing woman who battled ovarian cancer for six years.

Comments under Nowak’s post only begin to explain what Anne meant to her peers. A few of them are:

“Such a beautiful soul.”

“What a great, positive and wonderful person.”

“Rest in peace wonderful lady, you will be missed.”

“What an incredible spirit, wonderful person, fought the good fight, she will be missed!”

“One beautiful, strong, amazing lady.”

“Anne was an amazing person to work with and always so positive and helpful. Truly a role model for our community.”

“Anne had a wonderful spirit and such a kind soul.”

Anne diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015. She was 58 when she began her fight against cancer with a goal to also raise awareness regarding the disease.

In lieu of flowers, Anne’s family would prefer that donations be made to ovarian cancer research.

Individuals interested in making a donation in Anne’s memory are asked to consider one of the following charities: ocrahope.org or www.charitynavigator.org/ovariancancer.

Anne was a national spokesperson for Keytruda Immunotherapy for years – giving hope to women all over the country as a success story for this treatment. She and Clay traveled together for years with this message of hope. Both Anne and her husband Clay fought battles with cancer.

She was an inspiration even outside of the HTM community.

In lieu of a formal funeral, the family will hold a celebration of Anne’s life in the spring of 2021. Those interested in receiving a reminder may fill out the contact form at annegranum.com.

Kim Rowland, who worked with Anne at Tri-Imaging Solutions, wrote, “Anne has been the picture of courage, tenacity – and always the brightest light in any room! Her longevity in the industry is a testament to her commitment to quality and the genuine relationships she has built over the years. She made such an impact on this earth and will be missed greatly!”

“I know everyone shares the same gratitude about Anne and this could be unanimous from everyone that has ever had the privilege to know her,” Rowland said.
