Ann Catone McGuirk

On October 16, 2023, the world lost a kind and loving person

Roman) and son Allen McGuirk (Katrina), granddaughter

Brittany Glenn Cioppa (Stephen), great grandson Avery

Glenn, sister Carol Catone McCarthy (Armand Sieper),

nephews Brian (Talene) and Lane (Sandra) McCarthy, step-

special cousin Pattie Beeler. Ann was predeceased by her

friend and cousin Ginny Beeler. Please join the family for

Memorial Services at Our Lady of Victory Church at 55 N

Ann has always demonstrated a deep love of children. When

Ann was in high school, she would spend her Saturdays

volunteering at St. Coleman’s Children’s Home. Throughout

her life, she continued to welcome disadvantaged children

into her home as a foster parent to many and finally adopting

three-year old Allen (Corky). When the children were

raised, Ann pursued a degree in Early Childhood education


at Hudson Valley Community College. After graduation Ann

opened St. Timothy’s Preschool and Day Care Center where

she spent decades as Director/Teacher working with

preschoolers. She also loved music and shared her piano

talents by giving piano lessons to young children. Her giving

spirit extended to rescuing animals, especially cats, as well.

Among many other things, Ann especially enjoyed family

gatherings, cooking, and reading. Ann was a model of

kindness throughout her life. In lieu of flowers, the family

would appreciate a donation to the Hudson-Mohawk

Humane Society at 3 Oakland Ave, Menands, NY 12204.
