SEYMOUR — Ann Ajello’s 96 years here on earth ended peacefully on August 28, 2020; her eternal life of rejoicing with the angels and her loved ones has begun.
Ann was a lifelong resident of Seymour where, on June 12, 1943, she married her husband of 49 years, Ralph Frank Ajello and raised their six daughters. Ann was a wife and mother who blessed all with her endless love and hospitality.
Her home was always filled with family, friends, love, laughter and wisdom (don’t cry over spilt milk, pick yourself up by your boot straps and move on), always a cure for what ails you (shot of brandy, wood ashes), all shared over a cup of tea and good food.
It was a place of comfort and security for all who entered. Her faith compelled her to be kind and helpful where and when others were in need.
So in the end, she heard, “Well done My good and faithful servant!”
Ann was a member of the Seymour Grange for 60+ years, a communicant of Trinity Episcopal Church in Seymour, where she served on several committees, including Vestry.
For those who knew and loved her she would say, “Remember me well. I did the best I knew how. Share the memories but do not grieve my passing, as I am not gone, just waiting for you in eternity where I will be rejoicing with the angels, dancing with Ralph at the ball and reuniting with all my loved ones at the table of the King.
“Neither pain, nor sorrow do I bear; just eternal love that God does share, here beside the crystal sea.”
She is survived by her beloved daughters and their spouses, Linda and Edmund Ajello-Lique, Sharon and Harry Kerr, Barbara Ajello and John Lundin, Gayle and Andre Vescovi, Holly and Edward Shamansky, Melodie and Robert Moss; her sister, Rose Miles; 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband Ralph, she was predeceased by her dear friend of 10 years, Allen Bunting; her siblings, John Karlac, Helen Skrobat, Millie Breda, Walter Karlac and Steve Karlac.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Trinity Episcopal Church, Blessing Pantry, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 91 West Church St., Seymour.
