She was active in Holy Name Parish serving many years at CCD Coordinator, Director of it's Youth Chorale Group and part-time secretary.
She loved her church and the Catholic Liturgy. She loved music and reading and, fluent in Slovak, she became an interesting conversationalist. More than a hobby, she never tired of caring for birds, field animals and dogs. Dogs especially were dear to her heart.

Anne Marie loved her Catholic Faith and devoted her life to God, Church and family. The family asks that friends honor her request of being remembered in prayers, especially at mass.
