Anna Marie Vujcec

August 29, 1937 — November 1, 2023

Anna Marie (Cerimele) Vujcec, 86, a longtime resident of Austintown, passed away peacefully on

Wednesday, November 1, 2023, with her loving family by her side.

Proud of her Italian heritage, she was born to Emidio and Alice (Sebastian) Cerimele on August 29, 1937 in

Youngstown, Ohio, and was a 1955 graduate of East High School.

Anna Marie and her husband, John Vujcec Sr., were married February 7, 1959 at Immaculate Conception Church in

Youngstown and became charter members of St. Joseph Church in Austintown in the 1960’s. She believed in God and

drew much strength, particularly in her later years, from personal prayers.

She enjoyed cooking Italian dinners with homemade spaghetti sauce that she and her husband canned each year from

tomatoes grown in his garden.

She also enjoyed cake decorating and special parties with family and friends. These ranged from pizza parties,

“sibling dinners,” and most of all the Cerimele family reunions that were held for 50 years and attended annually by

close to 100.

Devoted to her family, Anna Marie took pride in keeping a clean, organized home and her dish towel and handheld

label maker were never far from reach.

While her children were growing, Anna Marie worked as a bank teller and as a school cafeteria substitute with

Austintown Local Schools. She also assisted with tribute dinners at St. Joseph Church and was a longtime kitchen

coordinator at BodyWorks Fitness Center, where she made many cherished friends.

Surviving her are three daughters, Lynne (Mike) Mullins of Boardman, Carol (Rick) Bueno of North Canton, and

Donna (Dan) Cornelius of Canton, and a son John Vujcec Jr. (Cyndi Chiaro) of Cincinnati along with seven

grandchildren whom she adored Tim, Steven and Eric Bueno, Elise and Elena Cornelius, and Evan and Aidan Vujcec.

She also leaves many nieces, nephews and friends, including her sister-in-law Judy Cerimele of Youngstown.

Besides her husband, who died May 31, 2008, she was preceded in death by her parents as well as her beloved

siblings and their spouses Ersilia (John) Conte, Rita (Frank) Galletta, Eugene (Nancy) Cerimele, Larry (Dolores)

Cerimele and Emil Cerimele.

The family would like to express sincere thanks to the nurses and other staff of Aventura at Humility House and, most

recently, AustinWoods and SouthernCare Hospice Services for their care, compassion and kindness. They are truly

“Angels on Earth.” A special thank you to nurse manager Jason McNees as well as former chaplain and Administrator

Neil Appell.
