Ann J. Struszynski Davis / Dedicated activist for the Polish Hill community

A message from Terry Doloughty, PHCA President

The contributions Ann Davis made to Polish Hill will never be forgotten. Ann was one of the Founders of our Neighborhood Group, the Polish Hill Civic Association, She served as President of our group for many years. In reading the first book of minutes from the beginnings of the PHCA Ann suggested that Polish Hill should have a newsletter. In all the capacities that Ann was of service to our Neighborhood, she will be remembered as an advocate and a voice for Polish Hill. She always had the best intentions for Polish Hill. Ann will be missed, but she will not be forgotten. Our most heart felt condolences go out to all the family and close friends Ann left behind.

In lieu of flowers Ann’s family has asked that donations be made to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church for the repairs needed on the domes.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette published a lovely article in Tuesday’s paper. The article covers many of Ann Davis’ many acts of generosity —

As past president of the Polish Hill Civic Association and an activist beyond that, she helped develop senior housing, improve recreational opportunities, enhance safety, support the neighborhood’s cornerstone church and lend a hand to countless other projects. In her 90s, she was still joining other neighborhood representatives in zoning hearings Downtown to make sure their voices counted on key proposals. Read the entire article.

Friends and relatives will be received from noon to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the WALTER J. ZALEWSKI FUNERAL HOME, 216 44th St., Lawrenceville. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Family requests donations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church Dome Fund.
