Anna L. "Ann" Croasman, 88, of Big Run, passed away at Allegheny General Hospital on Monday, Sept. 5, 2016, as a result of an accident at her home several days earlier.
Mrs. Croasman was born on Nov. 3, 1927, in Marchand. Ann was a daughter of the late Ralph and Anna Hazel (Hicks) Wineberg. She married her late husband, B. Ray Croasman in 1956, who served in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II.
Ann was a member of the Marchand United Methodist Church from a very early age.
Mrs. Croasman worked for Punxsy Hardware and later became a stenciler for Standard Pennant, where she worked for many years. Ann was very active, exercised regularly and was in otherwise good health enjoying every moment of every day. She loved her grandchildren, tending to her flowers and the company of her cat, "Callie," which was very special to her. Ann was known for her sharp mind and quick wit. For those who knew her, they all would certainly agree that her mantra was telling everyone whom she encountered, "Have a nice day." What made this special is that she meant every word because she loved life and loved people truly believing in her heart that everyone should enjoy a nice day and the gift of life.
Ann is survived by her daughter, Jan Haag and her husband Larry of Punxsutawney; and her son, Jerry Croasman and his wife Rose, also of Punxsutawney. She is also survived by four grandchildren: Mallory Croasman and her boyfriend James Matson of South Carolina, Asa Croasman and his wife Brandy of Punxsutawney, Austin Croasman of Punxsutawney, and Aaron Haag of West Virginia. In addition she is survived by many nieces and nephews.
Along with her husband, B. Ray Croasman, and her parents, Ralph and Anna Hazel Wineberg, Ann was preceded in death by a sister, Sara Belle Pearce. She was the last remaining member of her immediate family.
Friends will be received from 2–5 and 6–9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8 and from 10–11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 9 at the Shumaker Funeral Home, Inc., Punxsutawney.
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 9, 2016, at the funeral home officiated by Pastor Don Brauer.
Interment will follow at the Mahoning Union Cemetery in Marchand.
