A Cold Spring Harbor woman who was an artist and proponent of so-called "Five-minute vacations" has died.

Ann Moore Swanton died Thursday, May 23. She was 83.

Swanton was a lifelong, passionate artist with impeccable style and taste. A big believer in “Five-minute vacations” she encouraged everyone to stop and see the everyday beauty that surrounds us. 

She loved her children, her pets, sailing, her Cold Spring Harbor home and working in her garden. 

Swanton leaves behind two brothers, four children, five grandchildren, two nieces, a nephew, and many relatives and close friends.

The family will hold a private celebration of her life.
