Annie passed away suddenly January 24, 2022 in Largo, Florida with her husband Jack by her side. She was a lifelong resident of Joliet, Illinois. Upon retirement she and her husband became "snow birds" and purchased their second home in Largo Florida. Annie and Jack spent many years traveling the United States. They visited and enjoyed every state in this country except Alaska. They took a few cruises and were avid golfers. Any activity Jack enjoyed or wanted to try, Ann was always ready, willing and able to learn. He never had to look far for a fishing buddy, tennis partner,or traveling companion. Any adventure or interest, Ann was on board. She loved doing everything with him and together they made a perfect pair. They enjoyed many years with their "Com Ed" friends playing cards, sharing dinners, picnics and pool parties.
Ann was always there for each and every one of her five children. In good times or bad we could always count on our mother. Our hearts are broken but the memories we share and our parents faith in God will sustain us until we are together again someday.
