Annie E. Ciancio, 98, of Hultquist Place, formerly of 50 Norton Ave., Jamestown, N.Y., went to be with our Lord on Jan. 10, 2013.
She was born Jan. 25, 1914, in Westfield, N.Y., the daughter of Carmella and Salvatore Armeli.
For more than 20 years, along with her husband, Anthony, they owned and operated Ciancio Brothers Grocery Store. The store became part of The Lost Neighborhood. They also owned Oriental Park Ca-bins in Bemus Point for many years. Annie then worked at GMA Grocery Store until her retirement.
Her greatest pleasures in her life were the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She took pride in her cooking and baking, and baked hundreds of dozens of cookies for each of their weddings, birthdays and other important events in their lives. More than anything, she loved spending time with her family. She was a gracious, loving woman and will be missed by all who loved her.
She is survived by a daughter Connie (Richard) Fahey; a son, Dr. Sebastian (Marilyn) Ciancio; five grandchildren: Kim (Steve) Dineen, Tammy (Kurt) Johnson, Tracy Fardink, Michele (Peter) Bessinger, and Dr. Sebastian (Jen) Ciancio Jr.; nine great-grandchildren: Kylie, Madison, Nicholas, Colin, Kaden, Justine, Tyler, Emma and Isabella; and a sister, Carmella Zyga.
She was preceded in death by her parents, four sisters: Bessie, Sarah, Mary and Josephine; and one brother, Sebastian.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, at St. James R.C. Church. The Rev. Darrell Duffy will be celebrant. No visitation will be observed. Burial will be in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
