June 4, 1914 - August 27, 2012
Ann passed peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Savior, at age 98, with her daughter and son-in- law at her side. She was born in Kenosha, WI, the daughter of Stephen and Anna Arvy. Her family lived in Slovakia in her early years, then moved to Winnipeg, Canada, and finally settled in Detroit, MI. She was married to Emil (Ted) Jambriska in Detroit, in 1941, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
Her family and friends loved her larger-than-life personality, sense of humor and eagerness to help out and counsel people. She was always supportive and fun to be with. She working in a variety of jobs, engaging in many activities while still being a homemaker. She was very creative and enjoyed many hobbies. She participated in public speaking and sang in her various church choirs.
Family and friends will greatly miss our amazing mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, aunt, and friend. She leaves daughter, Jo-Ann Rutledge and husband, Mike; sons, James Jambriska and wife, Pamela, Thomas Jambriska, and Paul Jambriska; her grandchildren, Todd and Sarah Rutledge, Kristin, Thomas and Brian Jambriska; and great- grandchildren, Austen Rutledge, Lexxie, Aubry and Ashlyn Knight.
She was preceded in death by husband, Emil; mother, Anna and father, Stephan; and her brothers, John Arvy and wife, Julia, and Samuel Arvy.
