She was also predeceased by three sisters: Mary Misiazak, Virginia Pawelczyk, and Stacia Pryan, and three brothers: Joseph, Zigmont and Felix.

Ann was born December 7, 1922 in Farnumsville where she lived most of her life. Over the years, she was employed at Kartiganer Hat Factory in Upton, J.J. O’Donnell Woolens, Inc. in Farnumsville, Reed and Prince Mfg. of Worcester, and Wyman-Gordon Co. of North Grafton. She was a parishioner of St. James Church where she was a past regent of The Daughters of Isabella and she baked for the Bereavement Committee and for the Mustard Seed.

Ann was known as Gramma Houde to many. She enjoyed family get-togethers, going out to eat, and in her leisure time, she loved knitting dishcloths and afghans to give away to family and friends. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grand-children.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Beaumont for their kind and compassionate care. All are invited to calling hours on Friday, November 30, from 4-7pm at Roney Funeral Home, 152 Worcester St., No. Grafton.

She will then be laid to rest with her husband at Fairview Cemetery in South Grafton. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to a charity of your choice.
