Ann Biddle Moran Hepburn, 73, a retired business owner formerly of Wyndmoor, died of complications from a neurological disease last Wednesday at Stapeley in Germantown.
Mrs. Hepburn grew up in Moorestown and graduated from the George School in Bucks County. After earning a bachelor's degree from Pembroke College of Boston University, she worked in personnel for Smith, Kline & French, now GlaxoSmithKline, including a year in London.
In 1961, she married John D. Moran. While raising their children in Chestnut Hill, she was a fund-raising consultant to nonprofits including Horizon House, Catholic Social Services, and Cliveden, a historic home in Germantown. She was active with the auxiliary of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and chaired Daisy Day, a hospital fund-raiser.
In 1974, Mrs. Hepburn became associate dean and director of placement for Rutgers University School of Law in Camden. Six years later, she founded Ann B. Moran Associates, a legal search and placement firm. Her clients included major law firms and corporate legal departments, her son James Moran said.
After retiring in the mid-1990s, Mrs. Hepburn sold residential real estate until becoming ill last spring.
She and John Moran divorced in 1983, and in 1994, she married Charles M. Hepburn, an American-history professor. The best man at their wedding was Abraham Lincoln, as portrayed by a friend, Chris Johnson.
Mrs. Hepburn had a passion for golf and tennis. She was a member of the Forum of Executive Women and the Union League, and was a supporter of the Savoy Club, a producer of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.
In addition to her son and husband, Mrs. Hepburn is survived by another son, John D. Moran Jr.; three brothers; a stepmother, Phyllis Biddle; and five stepchildren. Her former husband died in 2005.
A Quaker memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, 415 W. Willow Grove Ave., Philadelphia.
