Dear Randy and Steve and family: I wish I had known of Ann's passing. I would have paid honor to her at the service. I taught Randy at PCHS and worked with Ann in various positions at PC Schools since 1974. She was quite a lady: Always perfectly groomed, presenting a wonderful and caring personality and was so helpful to all who worked around her.
My sincerest condolence, prayers and love are sent to you.
Ann Miruski...
