Ann Gugel, age 90, passed away on October 28, 2012 at the Arizona Pioneer's Home in Prescott where Ann had been a resident for the past 5 1/2 years. Ann was born May 21, 1922 in Bayonne, New Jersey, even though her mother was a resident of Lindenhurst, Long Island, New York. Seems her mother went to visit a cousin, and Ann, determined and strong willed as she would turn out to be, decided it was time to be born. Ann and her family moved to the Wickenburg area in 1946 and she continued to reside there until moving to the Pioneer's Home in 2007. Being a longtime resident of Wickenburg and a devout parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, she was an active participant of the Adoration Society, Ladies Alter Society and Martha's Circle, which provided luncheons for Church funeral/memorial receptions. Martha's Circle was created by a very dear friend of Ann's by the name of Martha Lang. Ann was part of this very special Circle from its inception. Mom lived a positive life filled with unconditional love, compassion for others, very dedicated to family and friends and would put everyone first before herself. She loved pansies, sweet peas and roses. He sweet peas would get as high as 6' tall and smelled heavenly. Everyone marveled at the sight and could hardly wait for Spring to come. Mom took pride in how her rose bushes would always bloom and smell so fragrant. Funeral Mass for Ann will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 11:00 AM at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church with Rosary being said just prior at 10:30 AM Ann's final resting place will be in the Columbarium of St. Anthony's Church. She was preceded in death by her mother Louise Johnson, a son George Gugel, III, a sister Theresa Mayer, her son-in-law Tex Bidegain, and two grandsons, Christopher and Marty Bidegain. Ann is survived by daughters, Ann Bidegain of Casa Grande, Judi Hill of Congress, Lois (Dick) Aronson of Tolleson, and Jeri (Sil) Modesti of Phoenix, seven grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter and three nephews. There is no other Mom like you, of that we are quite sure, for no matter what the pain you always had a cure. Blessed is the Mother who lets the Lord be her guiding hand, whose faith brings her family courage, whose wisdom comes from God and whose children still stand and honor her.
