Ann C. Otterbeck, 91, of Wheeling, passed away Sunday, October 16, 2016 at home surrounded by family.

She was born in Etna, PA, June 9, 1925, a daughter of the late Martin and Victoria (Hanzes) Zabich. Ann grew up in Blawnox, PA, where she graduated from Aspinwall High School in 1944. She was a Christian by faith, a member of a Bible study group for many years, and an award winning Avon Sales Representative. In March of 1947, Ann married the love of her life, Alfred Otterbeck, who was also from Blawnox, whom she met through letter exchanges while he was stationed in the Marshall Islands. She was a sweet, kind, loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by an infant son, Randy Otterbeck; two sisters, Mary Ivanich and Margaret Zabich; and two brothers, Edward (killed in action in 1944, in WWII in the invasion of Normandy) and John Zabich.

Ann is survived by her loving husband, of 69 years, Alfred, who lovingly took care of her for 6 years; two children, Rick (Debbie) Otterbeck and Kim (Ron) Gibbons, both of Wheeling; one granddaughter, Kaitlin Gibbons, and one niece, Charlotte (Stan) Plizga of Florida.

Family and friends will be received Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at Altmeyer Funeral Homes, 1400 Eoff St., from 4-7 pm with funeral services at 4:30 pm with Mnsr. Bakhos Chidiac officiating. Interment will take place at Lakewood Cemetery, Cheswick, PA.
