Anne M. Antos, 79, passed away on May 13, 2020.
She was born on Feb. 23, 1941, in Endicott, New York, to John Margetanski and Anna (Polak) Margetanski.
She married William J. Antos on July 3, 1963, at Fr. Kobbe, Panama Canal and they enjoyed 53 years of marriage before his passing.
Anne is survived by her sons, Joseph (Cynthia) Antos, of Niles, William (Pam) Antos, of Hilliard, Ohio, and Robert (Ann) Antos, of Angola, Indiana; as well as eight grandchildren, Geoffrey, Heather, Johnny, Christopher, Nick, Audreyana, Milena and Elijah; three brothers, Andrew Margetanski, of Charlotte North Carolina, John (Dee) Margetanski, of Endicott, New York, and William (Marlene) Margetanski, of Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina; and sister-in-law, Lillian Antos. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband; and brother-in-law, John Antos.
Anne graduated from the State University of New York at Albany in June of 1963, with a B.A. in secondary mathematics. She was a member of St. Mark Catholic Church for more than 50 years.
For many years, she and Bill spent winters in Florida and summers enjoying camp-outs with friends.
Anne enjoyed collecting recipes, cooking, baking, reading and, most of all, playing cards and board games. She especially enjoyed and was very proud of all of her grandchildren. Anne’s cookies were a staple of every family gathering, and her nickname was “Cookie,” an apt tribute to her legendary baking skills.
Contributions in memory of Anne can be made to the Niles Community Library, Cass Library (Oak St in Niles) or the Humane Society.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Halbritter Wickens Funeral Home 615 E. Main St., Niles.
