Ann Sobota Coens

Ann Sobota Coens, 87, passed away on August 6, 2022, surrounded by her loved ones. She died in Dayton, Ohio, but was a long-time resident of Schaumburg, Illinois.

Ann was a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend, and a positive thinker. She was a true businesswoman who loved all the many jobs she had throughout her life that provided her the opportunity to travel all over the United States. She was a woman who loved adventure that included golfing, fishing, bowling, trips to the beach, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Chiefs.

Ann was devoted to her family and faith community.  She loved volunteering at her parish as a greeter and minister of care, bringing Holy Communion to the sick and disabled. She volunteered in local elections by calling to get conservative voters to the polls. She was blessed in her marriage and motherhood raising 5 children who were close in age, all born in just six years, referring to them as her Five Busy B’s.
