Anna Hankewycz

March 2, 1920 — March 31, 2014

Anna Hankewycz of Newburgh, NY formerly of New York City died Monday, March 31, 2014. She was 94. Anna was born on March 2, 1920 in Arezzo, Italy, the daughter of Pietro and Maria (Malatesti) Peruzzi.

 

On January 14, 1946 Anna had married George Hankewycz. Together with their two children Maria and Marta, they emigrated to the United States in 1951 and lived in NYC. George predeceased her in 1982. She was a proud member of Soyuz Ukrainok (UNWLA) and a founding member of the Ukrainian Laymen Brotherhood of St. Volodymyr, Kerhonkson. 

 

Anna was a true artisan and was highly sought after for her talents. As a professional seamstress, her vision and precision for use of creative techniques earned her recognition among renowned members of the Italian community. In her earlier years she specialized in couture tailoring and later transformed her mastered skills into magnificent works of embroidered art left behind as a contribution to the Ukrainian culture here in the United States.

 

Anna's steadfast inner strength and purpose is clearly seen in her legacy as she is survived by her seven children, Maria Hankewycz of Hurley, Marta Chomanczuk and her husband Walter of Newburgh, Chrystyna Sinclair and her husband Louie of North Carolina, Michael “Peter” and his wife Maria of North Carolina, Stefan Hankewycz and his wife Myra of Queens, Anya DeLuca and her husband Ross of Puerto Rico and George Hankewycz and his wife Bethanne of Pennsylvania. Her fifteen grandchildren; Antin, Peter, Marko, Isabelle, Michael, Luka, Adrian, Roman, Adrianna, Rosanna, Alessandra, George, Andrew, Daniel and Mary. Her four great grandchildren; Niklaus, Peter, Emily and Eden. Although she was predeceased by her brother Gino Peruzzi and her sisters, Vittoria Peruzzi and Elena Carboni , she leaves behind a myriad of relatives and friends in Italy. She will equally be truly missed within the vast Ukrainian community here in the United States.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Divine Liturgy will be Saturday, April 5th 10am at Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church, Kerhonkson. Burial will follow at Pine Bush Cemetery, Kerhonkson.
