Obituary for Ann M. Rohanna

Ann M.  Rohanna

She was born and raised in Worcester, daughter of the late Anthony and Rose (Daboul) Russell. She attended Worcester Schools. In Buffalo, NY, Ann met and later married the love of her life, Robert J. Rohanna. Ann was predeceased by her husband Robert, a decorated veteran who served in W.W. II and received a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

Ann’s life was all about family, and she dedicated her life to them. She especially enjoyed spending quality time with her two granddaughters and great- granddaughter; her other interests included watching her favorite baseball team the Boston Red Sox, playing bingo, scratching lottery tickets, making Lebanese food and baking.
