Costa, Ann Y.




Ann Yvonne Costa (Vonnie) passed away on October 22, 2022 at The Willows at Presbyterian Senior Care in Oakmont. She was 91 years old. Vonnie was the daughter of the late Michael Ricci and the late Carmela Falcone Ricci. She grew up in East Liberty, the vibrant Italian section of Pittsburgh, with her brother, the late Michael Ricci and sister, the late Rosemary McMahon. Vonnie married the love of her life, Tom Costa in 1956 and together they built a strong, loving family. Tom passed away in 1982 and Vonnie went on to live a full, healthy life among her family and friends. She is survived by her children Tom (Susan) Costa, Ricardo (Kim) Costa, Lisa (Jeff) Breakey and Joanne (Ken) Hoover. She was blessed with ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren with another on the way. Vonnie was pleasant and fun to be around. She was known for her quick wit and ready smile and she was happiest when surrounded by her large and raucous family. She loved playing poker with her friends in Shannon Heights and never missed a Steeler game. At the request of the family, services for Vonnie will be private. The family asks that, in her honor, please consider a contribution to the The Willows at Presbyterian Senior Care in Oakmont, 1215 Hulton Road, Oakmont, PA 15139. The family will be forever grateful to the staff at the The Willows and The Bridges Hospice for their loving care of "Sweet Ann".
