Pellegrini, Ann  
Pellegrini, Ann Ann Louise Pellegrini, passed away peacefully at her son's home in Neenah on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Ann was born on December 5, 1928 to William and Nikki Peterson in Niagra, Wisconsin. She married Joseph Pellegrini on June 2, 1951. Ann spent her younger days growing her family and participating on many local bowling leagues. As her family grew, so did her need to give back to the community. She would make sure that every child had food, clothes, and new toys for Christmas. She would spend months making Barbie clothes, so everyone had more than one outfit for their doll. Eventually she chose to give her time at St. Vincent DePaul in Appleton. When Joe retired, it was time to hit the road and see the great US of A. The enjoyed their time driving coast to coast, with the occasional side trips to the many casinos. Many thrills and adventures had come their way, but when it was time to stay closer to home, they put away their wondering souls, and relaxed with friends and family. Ann lost the love of her life in October of 2014 and decided a change of scenery was in order. She moved to Neenah to live with her son and was able to spend her days watching all the wildlife that populates the backyard and becoming quite the little foodie. She will be sadly missed by her children: Mary Pellegrini; Debra (Brian) LeMere; Susie (Robin) Hopfensperger; Jeffrey (Jackie) Pellegrini, grandchildren: Jason (Amy) LeMere; Jenny (Craig) Schoepel; Amy (Corey) Lahvic; Chris (Mary) Hopfensperger; Michael Hopfensperger; Steven (Leah) Pellegrini; Scott (Danielle) Pellegrini, great-grandchildren: Keeva, Ren, Abigail, Riley, Cameron, Carter, Azaria, Scarlett and Quentin, dear family friend Barb DeYoung as well as many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Joe; great-granddaughter Bridget Anne; and sister Joan At Ann's request, a private memorial service was held. The family wishes to thank Theda Care Hospice for all the help they gave us over the last several months and Right at Home for helping us get the staff in place to keep Ann at home.
