  7. Dear Cindy, Joel, and family We remember so many welcoming times in your mothers house. Times of celebration, family reunion and bereavements. She could never do enough of helping and entertaining everyone. She was always positive and upbeat. Ann was the gracious and generous lodestone in whose home the Juszczyk family gathered. We will miss her deeply.

  9. Cindy, I don’t know if you will remember me–we both worked at the Water Department years ago. You went onto college and I stayed for a while and then went to Weirton Steel. While there I enjoyed talking with your mom and remember how dedicated she was to her Payroll position and how nice and kind she was to everyone. My sister feels the same way about her and we both will always remember her. May her memory be eternal.

  10. I worked at the City Building Inspections/Engineering Dept 1977-1982. Ann was always the sweetest lady and always had a smile. Our thoughts and prayer are with the family.

  11. Cindy, Joel, Sarah, Adam and Maggie, We were all so sad to hear about your mother and grandmother. Our deepest condolences on your loss. Sarah shared with me how much her grandmother meant to her while she was growing up. Our thoughts are with you all at this time, we wish we could be there to give you all a big hug.
