A longtime resident of Monaca, she married Lyle Virtle Rea on April 7th, 1956, who preceded her in death. Ann and Lyle ultimately moved to and raised their family in Beaver Falls.
Ann is survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Norma and Tony Blobner, four children and their loving spouses, Michael and Drenda Rea, Daniel and Nancy Rea, Susan and William Birkhimer, and Joyce and John Karatinos.
