“I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith. Now there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day.”
(2Timothy 4:7-8)
At 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26th, after a courageous 2 year battle with cancer and while listening to the words, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom,” Pani Matka Ann Hankavich entered into eternity at the age of 86.
All Funeral Services Saturday, May 30 at the Cathedral at 9:30 a.m.  Interment Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Cemetery, Youngstown, OH.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to St. Vladimir Cathedral.

May Our Loving Lord embrace her into His Heavenly Kingdom.   Memory Eternal!   Vichnaya Pamyat!
     "Я змагався добрим змагом, свій біг закінчив, віру зберіг. Наостанку мені призначається вінок праведности, якого мені того дня дасть Господь, Суддя праведний; і не тільки мені, але й усім, хто прихід Його полюбив." (2 Тим. 4:7-8)
