Ann Jincks
Lauer Funeral Home in Seneca

Ann Katherine Cooper Jincks, 100, of Sabetha entered eternal rest on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

Ann was born August 31, 1920, at home in Kansas City, Kansas.  She was the oldest of four children born to Joseph and Louise Cigich Pavicic. While growing up in Kansas City, Ann attended St. John the Baptist School, on Strawberry Hill. After completing ninth grade, she went to work in The Garment Factory in Kansas City, Missouri. Ann met her first husband Harry Cooper through his mother at The Garment Factory in her late teens. They married on February 3, 1940, at St. John the Baptist Kansas City.

Ann worked in Kansas City’s Bomber Plant, building planes for the war; and the couple continued to live in Kansas City until after the war. In 1945, Harry, Ann and their two children moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut. While in Bridgeport, Ann ran a boarding house, until she decided to move her children back to Kansas City in 1952. Once she returned to Kansas City, she worked for General Motors, building cars. She was also employed part-time by General Electric and I.J. Eagle Printing Company.  It was at General Motors where she met her second husband, Dean Jincks. Dean and Ann were married in Oklahoma on Sept. 25, 1970.

After working at General Motors for 23 years, Ann and Dean moved to a farm in Ridgeway, Missouri. Ann and Dean enjoyed traveling around the United States. The couple also enjoyed bowling, horse racing, dog racing and going to casinos. Ann and Dean eventually moved back to Kansas City; and the couple celebrated 48 years of marriage before Dean’s death in 2018.

Ann was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church; she was devoted to her faith and watched Mass and prayed the Rosary daily.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Dean: her brothers, Fred Pavicic and Joseph Pavicic; and great-grandchildren, Maria Enneking and Joseph Enneking.
