Ann Marie Pauta, age 67 of Warren, died Monday, June 4, 2018 at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Ann was born January 12, 1951 in Detroit, daughter of the late Donald and the late Patricia (nee VanOvermeer) Ruffino.

Along with her work in the construction realm, Ann was also noted for her involvement on the Zoning Board for the city of Warren of which she was a member for 16 years. An important and influential voice in the board's operations, Ann was an integral part of helping to uphold the city's regulations and keeping things in order.

Away from work, there were a number of things that brought pleasure to Ann's life, one of which was her love of animals. She was especially fond of dogs, but her compassion for animals covered a wide variety of our four-legged friends. And though squirrels, even in their cuteness, can wreak their own brand of havoc, Ann grew to love the squirrels that visited her yard and cared for them deeply to the point of hand-feeding them.

Ann was also known for her sharpshooting skills and the prowess she exhibited with long-guns. Specifically in the area of skeet shooting, Ann was incredibly proficient at the sport and loved plucking those little clay pigeons out of the sky. Her skills were so profound that they took her to many skeet shooting venues throughout the world.

Whether in the work or social realm, Ann was considered by all as the consummate people person. No matter the race or economic class, Ann was like the Ambassador of Humanity that fit comfortably in to any gathering, event or party,…and left behind a kindness and warmth that endeared her to everyone. Of the many with whom she endeared, Ann's devotion and passion for her friends on motorcycles, the Warthogs, was deep and abiding. These "wheeled warriors" had no greater friend and supporter than Ann.

And not merely with her two-wheeled friends, Ann touched a multitude of hearts and souls in her journey through life and leaves a legacy of love and professionalism that is rarely matched these days. She will be remembered and missed immensely by all who were blessed to know her.

Visitation for Ann will be held Thursday, June 14th from 3 - 9 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 1/2 Mile Rd) in Warren.

Ann's Funeral Service will take place at 10:30 am on Friday, June 15th at the funeral home. The service will be officiated by Fr. Jack Baker.
