After a life well lived, Ann Gull, 85, entered into eternal rest peacefully on May 27, 2023, at Peace Care St. Ann’s, with her loving family by her side.
Born and raised in Bayonne on July 7, 1937, Ann was the 7th child of Ludwig and Katarzyna Gull (nee: Poslusny).
Before her retirement, Ann proudly devoted 33 years to the City of Bayonne, working for the Department of Parks and Recreation, where she developed close and lasting friendships with her colleagues.
A devout communicant of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Ann's deep and abiding devotion to God was a true testament that sustained her throughout her life. With love and admiration for one of history's greatest moral leaders, Ann had the honor and privilege of seeing Pope John Paul II during his visits to New York City in 1979 and 1995, and she was thrilled when he was canonized to sainthood on April 27, 2014.
Known for her charitable deeds and numerous acts of kindness, Ann loved shopping and supporting many local businesses and charities. She took extreme joy in the countless places she drove her family to and always made it a priority to accompany her beloved brother Stanley (Butch) to all his medical visits. Ann regularly made phone calls to each of her loved ones to check on them, and for every special occasion, you could count on receiving a beautiful card, usually with a generous gift from "Cioci Ann."
Ann enjoyed the comforts of home watching classic black & white movies and sitcoms. As a diehard sports fan, she watched various teams on TV, but her heart was with the Jets, Yankees, and Duke Basketball. Like her brother Stanley, Ann was a horse racing enthusiast and never missed the opportunity to watch the Kentucky Derby and the challenge of remembering all of her favorite horses, from Kelso to Justified. Ann was very special and will be missed by her loving family.
Ann is predeceased by her siblings, Joseph (Adele), Stanley, Edward (Evelyn), Chester (Elaine), Mary (Emil) Peregrin, and Lottie Chavis-Gull. She is survived by her niece Patricia (Joseph) Mirabella, nephew Michael (Jill) Peregrin, great-niece Kara (Brian) Hennessy and their children Brynn and Nathan, great-nephew and great-niece Jake and Alissa Peregrin, along with many nieces and nephews with whom she cherished.
A funeral mass was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ. As requested by Ann, all services were private.
