i agree and long time friend
Ann was a good friend in High School, We spent many hours on the phone with each other over that time I wish we could have been as close over the past many years. She was a kind lovely person and will be missed. My condolences to her mom, her brother, and the rest of her family.
Anna was a friend overt the years , a fellow teacher, past president of Chicago Heights Lodge#1430 and a long time member of the OSDIA. She was my office manager for the Sons Of Italy and I will miss her. My deepest sympathies to her mom Marian and brother and rest of the family. She was more than just a worker to us. She will be missed.
Anna was a true and genuine friend and we shared many good times together over the years. She had a strong love of her Italian heritage and devoted many hours and time to the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America. She was a member of the Chicago Heights #1430 Lodge and the Grand Lodge of IL/WI. She served professionally as Office Manager of the Grand Lodge.
I extend my heartfelt sympathies to her mom Marian and her family. I will always treasure our last conversation on Wednesday. Rest in peace Anna - we have all shared many happy occasions with her and now these are memories that are snapshots taken by the heart and they never fade.
Marian & Family,
Our deepest condolences on the loss of your daughter & sister. You are in our prayers.

I was so surprised and sorry to read of Anna's passing. I send my deepest sympathy and condolences to her family. May your happy memories bring you comfort.
I was deeply saddened to hear of Anna's passing.
Anna would visit us at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, usually together with her elegant Mom. Anna was warm, friendly, and thoughtful - always remembering to ask about how members of my family were doing.
Good-bye sweet Anna.
Your genuine smile is forever in our hearts.
Miss you already
"Heaven took you way too soon, Anna, my childhood friend and buddy. Everyone I spoke to commented about the beautiful service and the many gorgeous floral arrangements. Countless comments on how beautiful you looked. This would surpass your plans, expectations, and wildest dreams :).God has promised each of us a special place in a heaven of eternal happiness."
Prayer and love are with Mama De Luca, Nick and Melissa and adored children, and family. Anna would have been so happy and proud !. God's blessings always in the days to come.
