Ana Pierce

Ana Pierce, age 86, of Ocala, FL, passed away in her sleep on June 18, 2024. She was raised in Mirna Pec, Slovenia, the seventh of nine children of Joze and Alojzija Staric.

After moving to Germany and marrying a US service man, the family relocated to West Point, NY. Another move brought them to Ocala, FL, where Ana called home for fifty-six years.

Ana was a very driven and determined woman. She was a dedicated wife and mother. She had a twenty year career with Lockheed Martin where she was often commended for her leadership and strong work ethic. Ana was an animal lover, cherishing her many Shih Tzus over the years, and most recently her two cats.

She was a member of the Polish Club in Belleview and enjoyed dancing to polka music, dressing in costume, and helping with club activities. She always had the lucky cards no matter where the Bingo games were held. She is survived by her son Joe Moon (Suzanne Wilson) Lutz, FL.

She is also survived by two sisters Toni DeFelice, Nekoosa,WI and Marie Aganovic, Ljubljana, Slovenia; one brother Ivan Staric, Berlin, Germany; and many nieces and nephews. Ana’s big smile will surely be missed by family and friends. Memorial contributions may be made to your favorite animal rescue or humane society or your favorite charity.

A committal service will be held Friday, July 12, 2024, at 10:00 a.m., Highland Memorial Park, Celebration of Life Mausoleum, 1515 NE 3rd St, Ocala, FL 34470.
