      Mrs. Anne Elizabeth Tokarz, age 92, of Ferrysburg passed away Tuesday, December 16, 2014, at Heartwood Lodge in Spring Lake.

      She was born July 3, 1922, in Chicago to John and Mary (Bernas) Szczech.

      She married Felix J.

      Tokarz on October 5, 1952, in Chicago.

      Anne graduated in 1941 from Lindblom High School in Chicago, then went on to attend the Business School of Chicago, and later graduated from Daniels Beauty Academy of Muskegon in 1967. She was a hairstylist for over 50 years and was the owner of her own salon, Petite Beauty Salon, for 20 of those years. Before entering the beauty industry, she held a position as a secretary for the Officers Signal Corps of Chicago during the war.

      Anne was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Spring Lake, where she was active in several parish and school functions, including the Women's Club and Senior Choir. Anne had sung in church choirs since she was in the fourth grade, and even traveled to Rome and sang for the Pope.

      With her creative flair for life, she especially enjoyed the arts and culture, and was a member of the Lakeland Painters and the Tri-Cities Garden Club.

      She loved being a mother and grandmother, and was known for her smile and her "famous" butter pound cake.

      She is survived by her daughter, Mary Anne DeMarse; sons: Ken (Marcia) Tokarz, Dan (Elia) Tokarz and Ron Tokarz; 16 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and sister-in-law, Irene Szczech.

      She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Felix; sister, Rose; and brothers: Matt, John, Henry and Joseph Szczech.
