I was sadden by the passing of Aunt Ann. I will always treasure visions of her smiling face and the sound of her infectious giggle. I have fond memories of visiting Momma and all the Voteks on Apple Street growing up. I wish with all my heart that I could be present for a good bye visit as Aunt Ann is laid to rest. I pray for peace and comfort for Nina, Mary, and Jeannie and their loved ones. Aunt Ann was very fortunate to have such a devoted and loving family.
I currently live in Georgia near Atlanta where my daughters live. Emily & Berni have Alden(6) and Ila(3 in Oct). Molly & Chris have Lucy(Lucile) (8mos).

I have fond memories growing up visiting my Godmother, Aunt Ann Voytek especially when visiting family in Dunmore from NJ. She always made me feel special, and she was kind and welcoming when I brought my future wife to meet her as a young man. If you met her, you loved her. She will be missed by her daughters and family, but we know we will see her again in Heaven, a fact that can bring comfort to all of us.
Rest in Peace, Aunt Ann.
