Ann was born Wednesday, July 23, 1919 to her loving parents Joe and Mary Roznovsky in Granger, TX. Growing up as one of 14 children, Ann’s childhood was full of fond memories with her siblings. Ann moved to Orange, TX in 1952 with her late husband, Eugene Koci, where she quickly became involved in her local community. Whether it was her activities as a life member of VFW Auxiliary 2775- Orange, TX, her proud involvement as a member of SPJST, or her service with St. Mary’s Altar Society; Ann could always be found out actively engaging in her community. Ann was a devout member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Orange, TX since 1952 and proudly retired from Weingarten Food Store where she worked many years as a meat wrapper.
