Ann Marie Segedy

After a long, difficult and courageous battle with multiple sclerosis, Ann Marie went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Ann Marie was born August 29, 1945 to Anthony L. and Bette H. Destro in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. and had been an Akron resident for most of her life. She was a 1963 graduate of St. Vincent High School and the University of Akron in 1967 with a degree in English. She married Alan G. Segedy February 4, 1967. She was employed as school teacher at St. Vincent from 1969-70 and as a social worker for Summit County Welfare from 1970-72. God called her to a different vocation with the births of her children.

Anne Marie was 'a gift from God and the love of his life' to her husband of 46 years, Alan Segedy; she was a wonderful loving mother to her sons, Jason (Colleen), Adrian (Kelley), Christian (Katie) and Jesse Segedy; she treasured her grandchildren, Emma Segedy, Gabriel Loree and Benjamin Segedy; she is also survived by her mother, Bette H. Destro; and brother, Robert (Brenda) Destro and their children Gina and Mark; sister, Elizabeth Jeanne Destro; sister-in-law, Helen Elefritz and her children James (Patricia) and Richard; she was preceded in death by her father, Anthony Destro and brother-in-law James Elefritz, Sr.

Ann Marie loved reading, spending time with her husband, her many friends and loved ones, but her greatest passion serving her Savior Jesus Christ. She was a member of Calvary Chapel of Akron. She was active with and passionate about "Right to life" and "Jews for Jesus" organizations.
