Ann Marie Finnessy (nee Megal), 54, of Hubertus entered into eternal life Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, at the Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls.
She was born July 22, 1961, in Stevens Point to Ambrose and Esther (nee Iwanski) Megal. She was united in marriage to Steven Finnessy on Oct. 22, 1983, at St. Maryís of Mount Carmel Parish in Amherst.
Ann worked at Sentry Insurance in both Stevens Point and Milwaukee, and then went to work for Strong Funds before deciding to become a full-time mother.

Her volunteering went far and beyond volunteering at church, but also to her daughtersí schools, and local events and good causes. A few of the events which were near and dear to her heart were the benefit for a local teen after he suffered a concussion as well as modeling in the Community Memorial Foundationís Fashion Show to benefit breast cancer care.
Ann loved to travel with her family, which took her all around the world: the Badlands, Alaska, Hawaii, Scotland, Ireland, and South Africa, just to name a few.
