Ann Marie was a devoted mother and wife. She cherished time spent with family, close friends, pets and was like a second mother to all her daughter's friends, who affectionately called her 'Seeta.'
In her earlier years she worked at Digital and Honeywell in personnel and then later as 'Annie the Nanny,' a job which she loved and well-suited her kind and playful nature. Ann Marie had a passion for art and classical music. A creative spirit, she enjoyed and excelled at sculpting, painting, sketching with pastels, charcoal and also taught calligraphy. She enjoyed going to museums and live theatre. Ann Marie performed on piano at Carnegie Hall while still in High School and enjoyed ballroom dancing at Mosley's when she was younger.
Ann Marie and Frank loved spending time in their vegetable and flower gardens and ensured something beautiful would always be blooming three seasons of the year. Ann Marie also enjoyed feeding and watching the birds at her home in Stow. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, card and board games of all kinds. She volunteered at the Stow Council on Aging and was a parishioner at St. Isidore Parish where she served as a lector.

Fasulo and wife Jean of Lancaster; and many beloved nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers George B. Fasulo, Edward F. Fasulo and dear friend Joan Powell.
