Piciucco, Angelo Michael  
Piciucco, Angelo Michael 57, of Scottsdale, Arizona passed away on April 24, 2016. Angelo Michael Piciucco was born on August 3, 1958 in Syracuse NY, the son of Italian immigrants Angela and Richard Piciucco. He left Syracuse as a young man to study and travel throughout Italy, and eventually made his way to Arizona to attend college and work. Shortly after arriving in Arizona, Angelo met the love of his life, Nancy Asheim, whom he married on May 16, 1987. Their life together was filled with love, joy and romance. They were blessed with two children, Michael and Mia. Angelo was an incredible father. In 2003, he founded nTrust Financial Services. His hard work and devotion to his client's wellbeing were the backbone of his practice, enabling him to achieve great success as a businessman and develop deep bonds with those he encountered along the way. Angelo found happiness in all aspects of life. He loved both coaching and playing sports, particularly basketball and golf. His house was constantly filled with music. He began playing Italian folk music with his father at a young age, and it brought him great joy to carry on this tradition with his own children. Angelo loved sharing a meal with loved ones. His family gathered every Sunday to enjoy one another's company and devour whatever Italian dish he had masterfully prepared. Angelo continued to live a blessed life throughout his battle with cancer. In March 2015, he celebrated the birth of his grandaughter Juliet Hope to his son Michael and daughter-in-law Aubrey, and a month later walked his daughter Mia down the isle to marry her husband Alex. He returned to New York last summer with his wife, children and granddaughter to spend time with relatives and enjoy a relaxing week at the family lake house, and his hometown in Syracuse. Angelo's compassion and optimism impacted all those who were privileged to know him. He will be dearly missed. The memorial service will be at 11:00AM Saturday April 30, 2016 at Scottsdale Bible Church, Grace Chapel. 7601 E Shea Blvd Scottsdale, AZ 85260. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Angelo's name to the non-profit organization Heart Encouragement. P.O. Box 25365 Scottsdale, AZ 85255. "Into Thy hands I commend my spirit."

Vicki was an angel on earth. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Frank; children Ted Plambeck of Phoenix, AZ; Laurel (Rich) Moore of Norfolk, NE; Scott (Lila) Plambeck of Sioux City, IA; Kirsten (Malia) Plambeck-David of Scottsdale, AZ; brother Steve (Lynda) Cole of Owatonna, MN; and 6 grandchildren.

Pohlman, Margaret "Ann"  
Pohlman, Margaret 'Ann' Smith 69, of Phoenix passed away peacefully on April 22, 2016, surrounded by family. Ann was born on August 8, 1946 in San Antonio, TX to parents Charles Henry 'Pete' Gorham and Winnie Mae Person. She grew up in Karnes City and Bloomington, Texas. She attended the University of Texas and earned a degree in physical therapy. Ann improved and enriched the lives of hundreds of physically handicapped and special needs children over the course of many years as a pediatric physical therapist and a founder of Scottsdale Fiesta Pediatric Therapy practice, from which she retired in 2007. Ann had many passions which included but were not limited to her loving family, hiking in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, Mexican culture, folk art, and cuisine, traveling abroad with her beloved husband Bob, a healthy appetite for reading which she passed on to her children, and compassion for all kinds of animals, of which she saved and cared for many over the course of her rich and devoted life. Ann will be remembered by many as a source of strength, a strong and empowering woman who steadfastly fought for and defended women's rights, a politically active and outspoken champion of the underserved, and the kindest person to ever walk the earth. Her capacity for love was unmatched. Ann is survived by her loving husband Robert James 'Bob' Pohlman, children Marshall Leroy 'Lee' Smith and his wife Elizabeth Ann Pagano Smith and Carly Marie Smith Caniglia and her husband Stephen Thomas Caniglia, step-children Christopher Robert Pohlman and Sasha Suzanne Paternoster, sister Mary Jane Gorham Perry, nieces Ann Perry O'Connell and Mary Lee Perry Austin, and grandchildren Alana Rose Pohlman, Kyler Christopher Pohlman, Olivia Rose Paternoster, Leo Sebastian Caniglia, Lola Joy Paternoster, and Boden Branch Caniglia.
