WESTVILLE — Anna P. Milewski, of Westville, passed away the morning of Jan. 13, 2014, at Presence United Samaritan Medical Center in Danville. She was 92 years of age.
Anna was born Dec. 14, 1921, to Frank and Mary (Cepaitis) Parnarauskis of Westville.
She married Felix H. Milewski on Oct. 25, 1941, at St. Mary Catholic Church of Westville, where they spent their lives. They raised two children, Charles (wife, Cheryl) and Mary Ann Milewski.
She is survived by her son and daughter; grandchildren, Felicia Buehler (husband, Benjamin) and Christine Milewski; great-grandchildren Abigail and Clayton Buehler; and sister-in-law, Yvonne Paran. Her many nieces, nephews and extended family were very special to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband on June 3, 1971; twin brother, Joseph Parnarauskis (spouse, Irene); brother, Frank Paran; and sister, Helen Miller.
Anna was a long time parishioner of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Westville, a member of the St. Mary’s Altar and Rosary Society and the Vermilion County Home Extension. She was employed in the Central Supply Department of Danville Lakeview Memorial Hospital for 16 years. Anna spent her last seven and a half years at Pleasant Meadows Christian Village Nursing Home in Chrisman. The loving staff and resident friends made her last years ones of comfort and grace.
Anna enjoyed her garden and yard raising vegetables and flowers, reading, sewing, crocheting, needlework and spending time with her family and neighbors. Her family and the arrival of the first green sprouts of her garden were her greatest joys. Spreading her loving wisdom as she walked with us through her garden will always be in our hearts.
Visitation will be 5-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, at Sunset-Urbas Funeral Chapel in Westville, with rosary at 6 p.m. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Westville.
