Ann H. Sturgis, a retired educator, died of pneumonia Thursday at The Pines Genesis nursing home in Easton. The former Cambridge resident was 75.

Born Ann Harrington and raised in Cambridge, she was a granddaughter of Emerson C. Harrington, a Democrat who was governor of Maryland from 1916 to 1920.

She was a graduate of Cambridge High School and earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1954.

An elementary school educator, she taught in Prince George's County public schools from 1961 to 1966, and for 20 years in Dorchester County public schools until retiring in 1986.

Mrs. Sturgis enjoyed entertaining and collecting antiques.

Her husband of five years, Jack Sturgis, died in 1998. An earlier marriage to Charles W. Stallings ended in divorce.

She was an active communicant of Christ Episcopal Church in Cambridge, where services were held yesterday.

Surviving are a daughter, Kimberly S. Cohee of Preston; and three grandchildren.
