She was a member of the Croatian Fraternal Union, Lodge 5 and worked many years at Bestform in Windber. She loved to crochet afghans for family and friends. She could never follow a pattern but created the pattern by just looking at a finished product. She also enjoyed cooking, Sudoku and gardening. Her last years were spent in a memory care facility at Providence Place of Chambersburg where she was closer to her daughters, granddaughter and great grandchildren who enjoyed visiting her. Ann had a wonderful 100 year birthday celebration with family and friends at Providence Place. Her 101 birthday was also celebrated at Providence Place. Even with a diagnosis of Alzheimer, Ann retained her sense of humor up to the end. She provided her family with many memorable stories including some from the last years with the staff at Providence Place. Ann lived a full and wonderful life; she will be missed by all who knew her.
