Sending my love to you and your family. I know losing a matriarch of the family is difficult, but may you take peace in knowing that she is still looking after you all. I am fortunate to have met her myself.

Ann was always a breath of fresh air! Her sense of humor and her caring for others made anyone with her laugh and smile. I loved the times when I was her golf partner on our Tuesday golf days and will always remember her unique square putter! She will be missed but comforted by the long life she had and her wonderful outlook. I will always remember the delightful 90th birthday lunch we had with our Tuesday golf group at my house two years ago and cherish that celebration. May you be blessed with many, many wonderful memories of her which will keep her alive in your hearts forever. Will definitely be doing acts of kindness in her memory. Toby

There are some who bring a light to the world that even after they are gone that light remains. Mama Mikuliak was an amazing woman with the biggest kindest most generous heart! Her loss is immeasurable but so is the love that she left behind to all those she knew and loved! My heart is broken for the loss of this amazing person. She is now our Guardian Angel watching over us, protecting us and will always be guiding all of us with her love. I am so thankful for the time we spent with her this past Christmas and our conversations, her stories, some of the silliest and always treasured memories of her life. May all of our cherished memories of our time together always remain in our thoughts and forever in our hearts. Mama, may you Rest in Eternal Peace in the arms of Angels! Love you always! xoxo

An inspiration too all who knew her and played golf with her. She was a marvel on the golf course in both talent and story telling. The only person I ever knew who could use a putter from 100 yards out. She will be missed by all.

- Trish Potts, SAVANNAH, GA

I played with Ann many times in L9GA. She was fun to play with and awesome with that putter! I will miss seeing her at the 9 a.m. Mass at St. James. Rest in peace Ann, and God bless you and your family.
