Ann passed away peacefully on July 6, 2022 at the age of 100. She was a resident of Fairport until moving to the Highlands Living Center at Pittsford. Ann was predeceased by her beloved husband David, her parents Max & Sadie (Schwartz) Golf, and her four older siblings. She is survived by her daughters Marlene (Keith) Christopher & Carol (Donald) Zinter, adored grandchildren Kevin (Carolyn) Zinter, Matthew (Alex) Zinter, Megan (Eric) Bonacchi, and great-grandchildren Benjamin, Ryan & Nora Zinter and David & Jacob Bonacchi.
A 15 year retiree of Eastman Kodak, Ann was a recipient of several innovation awards. She was a lifetime member of Temple Beth David, Temple B’rith Kodesh, and Hadassah. During retirement, she especially loved her work as a volunteer for the Generations Grandparents Reading Program through the Fairport School District.
Ann enjoyed long walks, gardening, crossword puzzles, game shows, and lengthy telephone conversations. Her most treasured memories were of her childhood and the life she created with David. During retirement, they travelled extensively, especially cherishing their trips to Israel.
Ann loved the holidays. She was an amazing cook and prepared unforgettable traditional meals followed by fantastic desserts. She was incredibly proud of the academic, professional and civic accomplishments of her family. She believed in her faith, strong family values, patriotism, and respect for others. We remember Ann as a selfless and devoted wife, mother and grandma, a good friend, and an angel on earth. Mom…your smile, loving heart, generosity, and patience will be our strength forever.
Our family wishes to thank the staff at the Highlands Living Center at Pittsford for their care of Ann.
A private graveside service will be held at White Haven Memorial Park.
