Louisville - Ann Bates Ulinski, life-time resident of Louisville, Kentucky, died quietly at her home on December 20, 2020 at the age of 93. Ann was predeceased by her husband, Harry, whom she married on December 20, 1948.

She is survived by her daughter, Victoria Messersmith (Roy) and son, Christopher (Maggie); six grandchildren, Alix M. Meehan (Matt), Austin (Catherine and children), Andrew (Sean Taylor), David, (Abby Mudd), Sarah Elizabeth, Jacob (Kara Brewer) and great-granddaughter, Stassi Meehan.

Ann was a graduate of Louisville Girls High School and of the University of Kentucky. An avid fan of UK football, she enjoyed season tickets for 50 plus years as well as membership in the University of Kentucky Alumni Association. Ann was a life-long member of the First Unitarian Church of Louisville and was awarded and recognized as a "Life Member" of the church. She proudly participated in the choir beginning in her teen years and continuing through her late 80's.

Most notable of her employment was her association as a substitute teacher in the Jefferson County Public Schools. Other fifty year plus associations were exemplified by her active membership in the Jewish Community Center and her participation in the Hikes Point Women's Club of Louisville where she was served as its president for three terms.

A memorial service will be held at a time and date yet to be determined due to the pandemic.

The family requests gifts of remembrance be sent to the First Unitarian Church, 809 S. Fourth Street, Louisville, KY 40203-2115, or one's favorite charity.

Ann and I have known each over for 50 years. I was a Seneca High School teacher and Ann was very fine and frequent substitute for many years, a difficult job that she did very well. What a lovely person she way, Chris and Maggie, my heart goes out to your family and all those who knew Ann. May you find peace.

Thank you Mrs Ulinski for your many times substituting at Atherton High. You were one of the very few that could win the kids over with your warm personality. I remember you would even have the students surround you at the teacher's desk showing us your husbands NFL ring, even trying it on and just laughing with us as we probably tried to take advantage of you as a substitute. You are pretty much the only substitute I can remember and that's a good memory for me and a hearty salute and sign of love and respect to you!
