Orwell Township – Anna Stawicki, age 86, passed away at her home on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 of natural causes, less than 35 hours after her husband Frank died. Born in Niagara Falls, NY on September 13, 1934, she was one of nine children of the late Vito and Anna (Notarincola) Montalbo, Niagara Falls, NY.
Anna met Frank when he came with his brother-in-law Frank to visit her brother Frank and the rest is history. Married September 26, 1959 after having met that spring, they were married for 61 years, having lived in Garfield Heights, OH, Streetsboro, OH, and Orwell, OH.
Anna worked as a bookkeeper after graduating from high school at age 16 to help her family, and continued as a bookkeeper once she married and moved to Ohio. While she worked periodically outside the home, she was a homemaker who was also responsible for the management of the farm once she and Frank moved to Orwell. She was an avid quilter, baker, and maker of all things homemade before it was cool! She showed her family what a loving, honest, and joyful marriage should look like. And she enjoyed those casino trips with Frank.
Anna is survived by children Janine (Steve) Becker of Shickshinny, PA and Frank (Kimberly) Stawicki of Edinboro, PA; grandchildren Catie Becker, Harvey’s Lake, PA; Emily Becker, Springfield, VA; Alison Stawicki, Edinboro, PA; and Aaron Stawicki, Edinboro, PA; and four of her siblings.
Anna was preceded in death by her daughter Joanna Stawicki, and four of her siblings.
