Anne grew up in Aliquippa, PA., the eldest of four children and the only girl. At home, her family only spoke Slovak and when she went to school, she learned English then taught it to her family. Anne attended a well-known secretarial school then landed a job in Washington D.

Corresponding with high school friend John Zapotocky who was living and working in Hawaii, Anne and John married in 1946. She fell in love with Hawaii, its people, traditions and lifestyle. Soon, a son John was born followed by a daughter, Barbara. In 1955 the family moved to Hibiscus Drive at the foot of Diamond Head where they lived for the next fifty-five years. Anne was an enthusiastic doer and lifelong athlete; she danced hula, made seed jewelry, enjoyed gardening, raised orchids, played tennis, square danced and walked and swam daily in her beloved ocean Anne was an accomplished seamstress, baked bread for 30 years, entertained with ease and exemplified the “Aloha Spirit” in all she did. Anne was an active volunteer of St. Augustine’s Church, served as the librarian for St. Augustine’s School, assisted in the library at St. Louis High School and collected donations and other community organizations. Anne lived a thoughtful and purposeful life and was grateful for her many blessings. She lived her faith with a humble presence, kept herself physically and mentally strong and remained open to new ideas and opportunities. Of all her roles, Anne most loved being a Mother and later a Grandmother to five grandsons. She is greatly missed by her family and by all who knew her.
