Posted By DeBord-Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory On May 18, 2020 @ 10:47 am In Obituaries | 14 Comments

Our kindhearted ray of sunshine, Annie Cibula, peacefully joined her heavenly family on May 16, 2020, just five days shy of her 98th birthday, at the home of her daughter. She was the last of ten siblings of the Roberts family. Born in Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Talcot and Mary Roberts and was the widow of John Cibula, Sr., who passed away in 1988.

She loved life and people and will be remembered for her contagious smile and laughter for everyone. She loved to smell the roses and was ready to go whenever someone would take her for a ride. She was a member of Otterbein United Methodist Church and a loving mother, nanny, and GG.

Surviving are her son, John Cibula, Jr., of Maryland, daughters Judy wife of Earl Suter of North Carolina, and Nancy wife of Dennis Hauenstein of Lawn, PA. Also surviving are five granddaughters, Christine wife of Tom Bowser of York, Jennifer wife of Michael Sullivan of Lititz, Tonya wife of Brad Wenger of Hershey, Shelley wife of Skip Notte, and Kara Suter, both of North Carolina, as well as her ten loving great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her son, Edward Cibula and by her very special friend and companion, Dominic Pizzola.

There will be a short service at the Conestoga Memorial Park Friday, May 22, 2020 at 11:00 AM. Memorial donations can be sent to Otterbein UM Church, 20 E. Clay St., Lancaster, PA 17602 or Meals on Wheels of Lancaster. Or you can just spread some kindness to others as she would have done.

So sorry to hear of Annie’s passing. Her obit is perfect! She was a smiling lady and always a breath of fresh air. Chas called her “Trouble” and she’d laugh. She was the opposite of trouble, We’ll miss her.

Annie was the sweetest gentle lady who was a big part of my life since I was a kid with a lilt in her voice and laughter. Her hugs were always the best. Always near and dear to me. I still have her sweet cards so thoughtfully written. Condolences to Annie’s family she will make heaven an even special place.

My condolences to all family members for your loss!!!! Annie was so very special & such a wonderful delight. I met her through Dom Pizzola & I watched the beautiful influence she had in his life,
They met @ a senior church social event. Quickly they became friends & began to date. The rest is history…..it was a perfect match made in heaven. which they both loved & enjoyed until the very end.

Hi Nancy!

We haven’t seen each other for many years, but when I saw your mother’s obituary, it brought back many fond memories from our childhood days. Your mother was always so pleasant and kind when we would play at your house back in the day when we went to Wharton Elementary School. You were blessed to have her with you for so many years.

Condolence from Rev. Bob Bailey on May 21st, 2020 12:03 pm

I remember Annie from my years as her pastor at Otterbein. She was always so positive and as you mentioned a ray of sunshine ALWAYS. I am sorry for your loss and hope you may feel God’s support in this time.

Condolence from Patricia Cibula on May 21st, 2020 1:00 pm

Many years of happy memories shared. My condolences to all. Remember the good times as I will.
