Ann attended Buchtel High School and graduated from Baldwin Wallace College. She married Tom Kukay of Marblehead, Ohio in 1965. After raising her family, she became a RN at the Akron General School of Nursing, where she was class valedictorian. Ann was a nurse at Akron Children’s Hospital for 31 years. In retirement, she continued working at the hospital and volunteering at the Medina County SPCA. She loved being outdoors, gardening, working and relaxing by her lake, playing cards, and enjoying time with her grandchildren. As a child, she spent her summers at Lakeside on Lake Erie and it remained one of her most beloved places.
She is survived by her husband, Tom, of Erhart; two sons, John (Laura), of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Chris (Jennifer), of Carlisle, Pennsylvania; her sisters, Dottie, of Brecksville, and Marty, of Cincinnati; she is also survived by her four adored grandchildren, the joys of her life, Katie, Abby, Audrey, and Nate.
Ann was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Ellen.
A memorial service will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Medina County SPCA.
