Ann R. (Biros) Gutoski, age 100, died on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, at Christ the King Manor in DuBois, Pa.
She was welcomed into heaven by her husband, Paul J. Gutoski, whom she married in September 1946, and by her grandson, Paul G. Johnson. As she now rests in God's loving arms, Ann is reunited with her mother, Anna (Stefura) Biros/Duffalo, her fathers Andrew Biros and Michael Duffalo, brothers Joseph "PeeWee" Biros and John, Joseph, and Carl Duffalo and sisters Mary Roseman and Genevieve Nadji, all of whom preceded her in death.
Ann enjoyed reading the local newspaper and welcomed news of events in the community. She was a lifelong baseball fan, and through the years added basketball and football to her viewing list, only recently expanding her interests to include NASCAR. Well known for her cinnamon rolls, Ann excelled at baking. She spent most of her summers helping her husband Paul tend his garden, and "canned" dozens of quarts of garden produce.
Ann was a member of St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church, where she was a member of the Rosary Infant of Prague Society and frequently provided authentic Polish cuisine to the church festival.
She is survived by her daughters, Barbara Johnson of Pasadena, Md., and Paula Noble of Norwood, N.C.; her grandsons, Marty and wife Johnda Noble, Jacob Noble, and granddaughter Ann and husband Mark Biehl; and four great-granddaughters: Jillian and Jacy Noble, and Ava and Hazel Biehl. Also surviving are sister Margaret Carlson of DuBois, and brother James Duffalo of Texas, and a host of nieces, nephews, friends and admirers from the community, Christ the King Manor and Penn Highlands Hospice Care.
Ann passes from this world while leaving a legacy of "living the Gospel message": "Love one another as I have loved you. Care for one another as our Heavenly Father cares for you."
Burial is private and services will be announced at a later date.
