Ann Katherine Paci of North Fort Myers, Florida passed away on September 29, 2021 in Cape Coral, Florida at the age of 90. She was a loving and devoted mother who outlived most of her friends after a long life serving her community as a church volunteer and a school teacher.
Ann was born on March 31, 1931 in Brooklyn, New York to parents, Peter and Catherine. She was a member of the Delta Kappa Gamma sorority at the University of Buffalo where she earned her Master's Degree in Education. After completing her degree, she then taught with the Niagara Falls School System for 35 years in New York. She was a Cub Scout Leader for Pack 836, and also volunteered to serve the elderly in her community. She was known to be a gifted crafter and lent her skills to many church projects and charities. She made many friends through church and Meals on Wheels, but sadly outlived all of them prior to her death.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents as well as beloved husband, Joseph Anthony Paci in 2000, and brother, Peter Kraus in 2016. She will be dearly missed by her son, David Paci (Tammy), grandchildren; Mike, Nicole, Brandon and Kate, as well as great-grandchildren; Evelynn and Alianna, and many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Ann believed that every day is a new beginning and she lived life to the fullest. PAX ET AMOR
