Kovalcik and the late Nicholas “Sonny” Kason.
Ann was a 1945 honors graduate of South High School and, having earned a scholarship, a graduate of the Grace Martin School of Business. She worked as an Executive Secretary for 33 years at United States Steel Corporation. She loved to sing and was a past member of the Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church Choir and the U. S. Steel Triangle Singers. An avid traveler, post retirement she worked as an agent for Century Travel. She and her sister/ lifelong best friend Bootsie, whom she lost just over a year ago, were affectionately known as “The Daisies”.
