Annabelle Karcz

After 98 years, Annabelle Karcz gained her eternal wings and went home where the streets are golden, the angels sing and she was welcomed with open arms. She was born Feb. 6, 1920, to Benjamin and Alma Kurtz in Advance. Prior to becoming a wonderful mother, she graduated from Oshkosh Normal School and taught at Cloverleaf School in a one-room schoolhouse. Annabelle met Eddie Karcz at a dance in Pulaski, and a loving relationship blossomed into a marriage of 41 years. During their marriage, they owned and operated a butcher shop/grocery store, dry cleaners, and ultimately Karcz Motors Company. Behind every successful businessman is his wife, and Annabelle was the epitome of this with her strength, grace and style. Annabelle’s sense of style was evident in her life with her love for clothing and jewelry.
