Obituary

Ann M. Briggs, age 95, a longtime resident of Janesville, passed away Friday morning, April 12, 2019 at St. Elizabeth’s Home in Janesville. She was born March 6, 1924 in Escanaba, MI, the daughter of the late John & Rose Matakovic, and was raised in Rhinelander, WI, where she met her loving husband, Raymond W. Briggs. They were married on January 12, 1943 in Ft. Sheridan, IL. Ann and Ray moved to Janesville in 1956.
Ann was a devoted wife and mother. Among her talents, painting was definitely her favorite. She also loved doing crafts for family members, and also for St. Patrick’s Church and School.
She is survived by her 2 sons, Raymond J. (Carol) Briggs, of Janesville, and Timothy P. Briggs, of Whitewater; her grandchildren, Erin Briggs, of Janesville, Amy (Jon) Hunt, of Coloma, WI, Peter (Jackie) Briggs, of Whitewater, Toby Briggs, of Madison, WI, Kristi (Matt) Odierno, of Milton, Jayson (Tasha) Briggs, of Janesville, Heather (Carl) Freda, of Milton, and Andy (Susan) Briggs, of Madison; her great-grandchildren, Barry Hunt, Steven Hunt, Courtney Briggs, Sam Hunt, Kara Briggs, Archie Briggs, and Vayda Briggs; and by many nieces, nephews, and friends. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Ray, in 1996, her sisters, Mary and Katie, her brothers, Peter, Steve and John, and her daughter-in-law, Joanne Briggs.
Ann will be mostly remembered for her feisty spirit and the great love she held for her family!
Funeral services with a Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at ST. PATRICK’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 315 Cherry St., with Fr. Timothy Renz officiating. Burial will take place in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
