Ann Marie Urmanavage
, 89, of Minersville, passed away on Wednesday morning at Luther Ridge at Seider’s Hill.

Born on August 5, 1931 in Mackeysburg, Cass Township, she was a daughter of the late Aloysius and Anna O’Boyle Tobin. She was a graduate of Pottsville Catholic High School. She worked in the local garment industry, having last worked for Jackson Blouse, Primrose. She had a penchant for keeping a tidy, well-decorated home which she later shared with friends and family by transforming their homes in the same way.

She was a member of the former St. Francis of Assisi Church, Minersville; and a member of Holy Family Parish of Minersville.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, John “Oogie” Urmanavage, for whom she provided loving care in their last years together; a brother, Aloysius Tobin; four sisters, Catherine Campion, Jean Albertini, Philomena Lipshaw, and Rose Koppenhaver.

She is also survived by a sister, Elizabeth Lavis, Orefield; nieces and nephews.

The family will be forever grateful to the staffs of Luther Ridge and the Overlook Program for the amazing and compassionate way in which they treated and care for Ann Marie – thank you so much.
