Ann C. Masterson

1935 - 2020

Ann C. Masterson of Mahopac.
It is with immense sadness we announce the passing of Ann Catherine Masterson, age 85, on May 17, 2020. Ann was born on January 31, 1935 in New York City to Francis and Catherine (Reilly) Tierney.  Ann married the love of her life, Robert Masterson on November 16, 1958 in Bronx, NY. They were blessed with four wonderful children. 

Ann was a homemaker, yet worked hard to provide for her four children, Scott, Diane, Susan and Jeanne. Family was the most important thing to her; she took tremendous pride in taking care of her family.  She enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her children and four remarkable grandchildren.  Ann and her husband, Robert, also loved vacationing at Cape Cod as well as Myrtle Beach where they both enjoyed reading and relaxing on the beach, as much they loved boating and fishing on the Long Island Sound. 

Faith was very important to Ann and she was an active member of Our Lady of Angels Church in the Bronx as well as St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac, NY.  Ann will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have known and loved her.

Ann is survived by her three beloved children, Scott Masterson and wife, Shelly, Susan Masterson and Jeanne Masterson Piekutowski and husband, Steven.  She is also survived by her four cherished grandchildren, Kate Aber, Christopher Aber, Brian Piekutowski and Matthew Piekutowski.  Sadly, Ann is predeceased by her dearly loved husband, Robert, who passed in 2008 and her amazing daughter, Diane Aber, who passed in February 2016.

A limited private graveside ceremony with Prayers and a Blessing for immediate family only, will take place on May 22, 2020, at her final resting place at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery-Hawthorne, NY.   A Memorial Mass to celebrate Ann's life will be held at St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac, NY. at a date to be determined sometime in the future.  Ann will truly be greatly missed. The family would like to thank everyone for their understanding during this difficult time. In Lieu of Flowers donations in Ann's memory to:  Alzheimers Association
