  • Ann was a very important part of the Pulaski Legion for many, many years. She was a friend to all and was considered our house mother! She was a pillar of the club and was well known for her “city chicken” and golabki! A fierce shuffleboard for and loved by us all!

  • Dear Family, you have our deepest sympathy and prayers. Anne was a beautiful and friendly woman. We played on a summer shuffleboard league at the Jackson Street Legion location. Each team was in charge of bringing food to share, and Anne would join the fun bringing along her chicken on a stick and golabki cabbage rolls. Yummy! We visited Anne at her home on February 11, 2019 and enjoyed reminiscing “the good old days” with her.

  • Mrs Deputy was quite a person. Hard working and honest with a great personality. Her service to the Pulaski Legion was legendary. She was a terrific lady with amazing cooking skills. Everyone loved her quick wit and amazing dependability. She would never let you down. God bless her loved ones and may her soul be granted the expressway to Heaven.

    In my forty seven years as a member at Pulaski Legion I can attest to just how great a Polish Chef she was! She was the Club caterer .Whether it was a wedding ,a banquet ,funeral luncheon, christening or Pulaski Day Parade party she was always on hand to provide the food.
    Shuffleboard teams were treated bi-weekly to wonderful sandwiches and her ever present sautéed hot peppers in oil and garlic.
    Ann we cherished the good times we had with you and will never forget you. Rest In Peace and God Bless You. Stan Kozicki
