Peacefully on August 15 2018, age 72 of North Versailles. Anna was the daughter of the late Steve and Katherine (Radojcic) Vukmir. Sister of the late Melvin (surviving Joanne) Vukmir
Special aunt of Eric (Jessica), Paul, Brian (Shannon), and Keith (Beth) Vukmir.
Anna was an amazing person who left all of those in her company a little bit better off from their time with her. She brightened rooms, warmed hearts, and was easy to bring to tears with laughter. Her love for “her people” was unconditional and permanent. Anna was an incredible daughter to her parents and saw to her Mother’s care with an undying passion. She cherished her brother Mel and always felt so lucky to have such a great big brother. She adored her boys (nephews) and always offered them sage advice through the bumpy roads of life. She welcomed with open and loving arms the wives of her nephews as though she had known them for many years. Her bountiful heart expanded even more with the blessings of 7 great nieces and nephews whose company she could never tire of. She relished her time with her sister in law, Joanne, as they had their babysitting lunches with the kids where there were never any rules. Anna was extremely fortunate to have such devoted friends by her side like Steve who always made it to all Vukmir family events as he is one of the family. She truly was a teacher at heart, as shown in her classrooms at Penn Hills but also to all of those in her life who she thoughtfully enriched with everlasting knowledge, some think enough to have beat anyone at Jeopardy. She was a lover of the arts and the words of Shakespeare, Thoreau, Emerson, and her main man, James Taylor. Anna was a pillar of love and peace that will never be replaced on this earth. Everyone should have been lucky enough to know her. If you look up, you’ll see that heaven just got a little brighter.
