Anna Kuscht

ROCHESTER: Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Suddenly but peacefully, surrounded by love, her story came to an end just after sunset at the age of 88. Predeceased by her parents, Iwan and Daria, brother Fred, and grandson Christopher. She is survived by her loving and devoted family; daughter, Olga and Gary (Karwowski), daughter Lucy and Stan (Martucci) (Prytyskach), son Alex and Kathy (Kuscht). Grandchildren: Lucien, Mark, Mischa, Nick, Kristina, Corey, and Steven. Anna is also survived by her beloved sister Waleria Skrypka, brother Nick and Mary Kompanijec, several extraordinary nieces and nephews, extended family, and many friends that she also adored.

Anna was born June 5, 1930 in Barvenkovo (Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine). During WWII she and her family were forced to leave Ukraine to Germany where she worked for farmers for several years. She then lived with members of her family in "Camp Ohio" (a camp for Displaced Persons in Burgdorf, Germany), where forced laborers, war refugees and families lived. It was there that she met the family of her future husband, Stefan. After liberation of the Camp, the road to America was long and with many challenges. She lived in Brazil and later immigrated to the United States where she finally settled and raised her family in Rochester, NY.

She was an active lifelong member of St. Mary's Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Sisterhood, and Church Choir for over 50 years. She was a past member of the Surma Choir, participated in plays, loved to crochet & embroider, garden and enjoyed trips to the casino.

Her cherished family was her greatest joy and no words can express how much our "Bunia" will be missed.

Our family will receive friends Friday (May 17th) 3-7 pm at Vay-Schleich and Meeson, 1075 Long Pond Road. Panachyda, Ukrainian Prayer Service at 7:00 PM. Her Divine Liturgy will be held Saturday (May 18th) 10:00 am at St. Mary's Ukrainian Orthodox Church (3176 St. Paul Blvd). Interment Mount Hope Cemetery. Contributions may be made to St. Mary's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in her memory. For more information or to sign Anna’s online guestbook, please visit
