Ann E. Krupinski, age 97 passed away peacefully at home on September 10,2020. She was born in Plainville Ct on July 1, 1923 and moved to Southington at the age of 3. She was the daughter of Henry Musshorn and Agnes (Garrity) Musshorn. She is pre-deceased by her late husband Stanley J. Krupinski to whom she was married for 55 wonderful years. Ann was also pre-deceased by her sister Pauline (Musshorn) Klimek and her brothers Henry Musshorn and Robert Musshorn.
Ann leaves her 2 sons, Peter Krupinski of Plainville, Paul Krupinski and daughter-in-law Wendy Krupinski of Simsbury along with several sisters-in-law and many beloved nieces and nephews.
Ann went to school in Southington and graduated from Lewis High School Class of 1941. She was on the reunion committee for over 70 years and was one of the few remaining classmates. Ann worked as a switchboard operator at Marlin-Rockwell in Plainville, was the restaurant manager at Cooke’s Tavern in Plainville and Office Manager at Taplin Pump and Compressor in Forestville.
She was a resident of Plainville from 1957 until the time of her passing and was a member of Our Lady of Mercy Church since her birth. Ann was an active member of the Plainville Senior Center and served on the Committee on Aging from 1986-2019. She was also a member of the Plainville Women’s Club from 1985-2019. She served as a blood drive captain with the American Red Cross Blood Drive Program for 25 years. Ann volunteered at many town programs including Project Graduation and the Plainville Little League. As a highly active member of the Plainville Chapter # 4146 AARP, Ann served as past-president and for many years put together the monthly newsletter for the chapter along with her husband Stanley.
Ann’s love of life and family was always evident. Whether it was her love of knitting slippers, scarfs or afghans for family and friends, to her incredible talent as a pie maker, baker, cook or cookie master, Ann would always find time to make a hungry stomach full. She willingly shared her talents with anyone that asked and would always give you her family recipes and tell you her secret ingredients. She loved her family picnics, holiday parties and bus trips and would occasionally like to lose just a few dollars at the casino with her sisters-in-law.
The love and care for her family was always at the forefront. Ann was known to many as “Mom” and would treat them all as her own. She was an amazing mother, wife, mother-in-law, and friend who you could always count on for anything. Ann will be deeply missed but her spirit is now with Stanley and they are together again.
