Our love and prayers to the family of Ann. She is now resting peacefully in God’s loving arms.
The comment about her liking to make pierogis during Lent brought a smile to many of our faces since we worked side by side with her during those times. She will be fondly remembered as we begin “pinching” soon!

Eternal Memory!!!
