Ann Seman, 87, of Plains, has entered into her new eternal life on Friday, October 1st, at the home of her sister and caregiver, Mary Ann Pieszala, Inkerman, where Ann had spent her last months in Mary Ann’s loving care.
She was born in Plains, the daughter of the late Michael and Anna Verespy Seman. Ann was educated in the Plains Twp. School district. She was a member of St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church, Wilkes-Barre.
Ann went to New York at an early age. She worked in ship yards in Oregon, traveled to California and returned to New York. After retirement, Ann came back to her home town in Plains. She was self educated and her thirst of knowledge was fulfilled through many hours spent at the local library.
Her loyalty to her family was without measure. Ann will always be remembered for her kindred spirit and generous heart. She loved adventure and praised God in His Nature. Ann gave joy to all who loved and knew her and her memory will be cherished forever.
The family wishes to acknowledge their gratitude to the Hospice Community Care in Kingston, for their dedication to the care of their sister, Ann.
