An employee of General Motors, Inc., located in Lordstown, Ohio, Annie worked on the assembly line as a machine cleaner for over 38 years. She retired from GM in 2008.
Annie was an active member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church. She held her faith closely in her heart and it was her faith that carried her throughout her life. Of all the things that she could have instilled in her children, it was the gift and example of her faith that she treasured most.
One of Annie’s enjoyments was to spend time at the beach soaking up its warmth, beauty and serenity.

She especially enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren participate in their various sporting activities. It gave her great joy and she was their biggest fan.
