Preceded in death by her parents Anna (Kovach) and John Bukszar, her husband William (Bill), brothers Edward, Raymond, and John (Buck), and son Raymond. Survived by brother Walter, sister-in-law Marge Bukszar, daughter Mary Ann Michalski, son William J. (Marie) Ginter, eight grandchildren, nine great-grand children and two great-great grandchildren, and three generations of numerous nieces and nephews who were very fond of "Auntie Rea".
A proud daughter of the Buckeye Road Hungarian community on Cleveland's East Side, Annamarie credited having four brothers as the source of her strength and resiliency. These strengths were challenged when as a bride of seventeen, she endured her husband's successful battle with polio. They were certainly necessary when her husband, Bill, died in 1969, at age 44. She moved from Bedford Heights in the mid-1970's and was embraced by the New London, Ohio community. Since the late 90's she resided in West Akron and most recently at Rockynol. Dedicated to friends and family, her cards and notes recognized the milestones in the lives of three generations and she could be counted on to attend all celebrations. Her counsel and advice was always available and often sought. We are all fortunate and grateful she chose to contribute to our lives and did for a very long time.
