Anna “Annie” Nowak, age 99 of Monroeville, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. How spectacular it must have been when the gates of heaven opened to greet Annie! Beloved wife of the late William Nowak and the late Joseph Barr. Born in Czechoslovakia, Annie came to America at the age of 2, where she was raised on a farm in Flatwoods, PA. in Fayette County. She opened her own hair salon in 1943 and operated there for 50 years in the Penn Lincoln Hotel in Wilkinsburg. Annie’s energy did not slow down after retirement as she stayed active in Catholic Daughters of the Americas, PAS (Pittsburgh Area Slovak), Consolata Missions, NSS (National Slovak Society), prayer groups, rosary making and being a Eucharistic Minister at Forbes Hospital. Friends and family alike would attest to Annie’s infectious smile which surely was a reflection of the great joy she felt doing God’s work here on earth. Talks with Annie were uplifting and encouraging. You walked away knowing God is absolutely the God of the Impossible. Being a friend or relative of Annie has offered us a lifetime of memories that all of us are better for being a part of. She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew and Mary Ofsanik and her sister, Marge Samek of Monroeville and a brother, John Ofsanik of Uniontown. Annie is survived by her sister, Mary Collins of California, many nieces and nephews and special friends. Friends will be received Saturday 7-9 p.m. and Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the GENE H. CORL FUNERAL CHAPEL INC. AND CREMATION SERVICES OF MONROEVILLE, 4335 Northern Pike (412-372-2100). Mass of Christian Burial Monday, July 26, 2021 at Christ the Divine Shepherd at North American Martyrs Church at 10 a.m. Interment following in Good Shepherd Cemetery.
