Ann Alexander Slavik Obituary
Ann is survived by her loving second husband Jack Hall, her daughter Susan Slavik Williams, and Susan's husband and three children. She was an indomitable spirit with a love of life and an endless sense of adventure. Born Ann Louise Alexander in 1931 in Detroit, Michigan Ann spent most of her life in the Pasadena area. She attended the University of Southern California achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After college she worked as a stewardess for Pan Am then as a teacher, both jobs she loved. She and Donald Slavik were married for 41 years. After meeting on the Lurline while traveling to spend the summer in Honolulu after college, their relationship sparked a love of exotic travel that lasted until the very end of her life. She voyaged to every continent, snorkeled and body-surfed worldwide, and chased wildlife from Africa to South America. She had a life-long love of the Hawaiian Islands and once calculated that she had visited more than 108 times. She was lucky to have had two soul mates. After losing Don in 2001, she married the second love of her life, Jack Hall, in 2005. Together they lived and treasured every minute of every day, continuing to travel and touch the lives of all around them. They were members of four clubs, Annandale Golf Club, The Valley Hunt Club, The Newport Harbor Yacht Club, and Birnam Wood Country Club in Montecito. In 2012 Ann was named a lifetime recipient Jewel of Pasadena for her charitable work. Ann remained active in her community most recently by sitting on the Board of Directors of the Huntington Medical Research Institute and The Donald Slavik Family Foundation, and supporting the Pasadena Humane Society, The Huntington Hospital Emergency and Trauma Center and the Pasadena Boys and Girls Club among many others. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made in Ann's name to the Pasadena Humane Society (361 S Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105) or the Pasadena Boys and Girls Club, Slavik Branch (3230 East Del Mar Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107). A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, March 22 at 3:00 at Annandale Golf Club.
