Ann Agnes McQueeney (Telepan) passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home in Fairfield, CT on June 14, 2017 at the age of 98.
She was born to John and Mary Telepan on May 19, 1919 in Windber, PA. She was a coal miner’s daughter that headed for Brooklyn and never looked back. She never ceased to amaze those who knew her; she was an independent and no-nonsense individual who had a strong work ethic and a true and kind heart.
In 1939, she married Timothy J. McQueeney, a Navy Veteran and career electrician. They raised their daughter, Carol, and their son, Timothy, and also became the surrogate parents to her brother and sister-in-law’s three boys, Donald, Johnny and Bobby. Ann was a loving, spirited and confident mother who raised all five children with selfless effort. Even after her husband’s passing in 1985, she remained strong and poised, a true family matriarch.
Ann is survived by her daughter Carol Mitchell (McQueeney), her son Timothy McQueeney, her nephew and surrogate son, Robert Telepan; her brother George Telepan; 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandchild and many other extended family members. She was predeceased by her husband, Timothy McQueeney; her nephews and surrogate sons, Donald and Johnny Telepan; her brothers John, Joey and Richard Telepan; her sisters, Mary Russian (Telepan) and Helen Killian (Telepan); her grandson, Timothy McQueeney, and her granddaughter, Joanne Shea Krisa.
