Just heard of my wonderful Aunt Anne passing away. I remember going to her and Pete's house to visit Grammie and Grandpa and all the Hudyma's, Wykry's, Godnish's and Goldak's. What fun we all had. I loved listening to the old polka records, eating perogies(pedaha as I called it) and kielbasa. Although at the time I didn't want them, I truly miss those big wet kisses from my Grammie. What fun and wonderful memories those are.

To Anna's Family, As a longtime friend of the Hudyma family--since the mid- 1940s--I first met Anna when she and Pete married. Visiting them and Grandma and Grandpa Wykry at their home in Fairview was always fun. Drop- ins were welcome at anytime--no advance phone call needed. If I arrived during one of their soap operas, I joined the 4 of them and held off conversation until the show was over. They welcomed me when Grandpa Wykry was in his last days. After both of Anna's parents were gone and Pete and Anna moved to the Apartment Community, I visited them. Finally, until a few years ago, I visited Anna when I could catch her in her apartment. She often was in another part of the building keeping busy. She always made visitors feel welcome. I celebrate her life. I met a few of her relatives through the years and want you to know she is missed. I am thinking of her particularly during this Easter week, when she would greet visitors at the door with a bite of egg and a Ukrainian prayer. RIP, Anna. From Nancy Ryan Macklin

I first met Ann back in 2004 when she volunteered at the Shrine. She was a fun lady to be around. Since then I'd visit her on Saturday mornings while visiting the Oblates in Dammert.. she was usually crocheting a baby blanket or a lap quilt for someone. I will truly miss her . In another time I would definitely be at her funeral. Keeping the family in my Prayers.
