Ann Healey Oglesby, a retired private school admissions director, died of cancer Wednesday at Mercy Medical Center. The Harbor East resident was 62.

She had suffered from carcinoid carcinoma, said her husband of 35 years, Dr. Thomas J. Oglesby, a psychiatrist.

Born Ann Healey in Baltimore and raised on Old Court Road in Brooklandville, she attended Garrison Forest School and graduated from the Marymount School in Richmond, Va. She earned an English degree from Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., and a master's degree in social work from Rutgers University.

Family members said she started the guidance counselor position at the Calvert School, where she worked for 10 years before becoming the admissions director at St. Paul's School for Girls. After her 2001 retirement, she sat on its board of trustees.

Mrs. Oglesby volunteered for many years at St. Elizabeth's School in Northeast Baltimore and at Mercy Medical Center.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 11 a.m. today at the Roman Catholic Shrine of the Sacred Heart, Smith and Greely avenues in Mount Washington.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two sons, Jonathan Oglesby of Germantown and Graham Oglesby of Sykesville; two daughters, Sarah Oglesby and Erin Oglesby, both of Baltimore; four brothers, the Rev. Joe Healey, a missionary in Kenya, Tom Healey of New Vernon, N.J., Michael Sheehan of Towson and Peter Sheehan of Bel Air; and three grandchildren.
