Anna (Van Duin) Loucks

September 21, 1937 ~ September 30, 2019 (age 82)

The wife of Richard Wayne Loucks of Dillsburg, PA of 36 years. While living in

southern CA she met her husband and later moved with him to PA in the 90’s.

Known as Ann, she was born in the Netherlands September 21, 1937, the

daughter of Hendricus Jozeph van Duin and Cornelia Jannetje Lindhout. She was

one of 7 children, Brothers: Hans, Renus, Martin (all pre-deceased) and Jos who

resides in the Netherlands with wife, Marja. Sisters: Tinie and Bella (pre-

deceased – Bella passing exactly 1 week after Ann), along with many nieces,

nephews and cousins around the world. Ann emigrated to America June 1962

and became an American Citizen in January 1971. She took tremendous pride in

that.

 

Before retiring in 2015, Ann worked in CA for many years for Catalina Sportswear

working directly with the designers sewing their prototypes. After moving to PA

she eventually successfully operated her own business, “Ann’s Sew-Fine

Draperies & Slipcovers”, doing exquisite custom-designed creations for her own

retail customers as well as wholesale for noted local interior designers such as

David’s Furniture. Over her lifetime she was a dedicated AVON Rep, winning

many sales awards/trophies. She was an avid bowler, again, winning many

awards/trophies while participating in tournaments all over the country. She

played the accordion and organ. She was always ‘up’ to try anything new, fun and

challenging. She was a member in good standing in her Church, West Shore

Baptist in Camp Hill, PA where she was very active. She sang in the choir, was a

member of “The Wild Women of WSBC” and other activities there as well,

including mission trips to Malawi, Africa. She loved cats. And Ann loved her Lord

and Savior, Jesus Christ, and was not reluctant sharing her Faith. She will always

be remembered by her beautiful smile and out-going personality. She loved

people and could get very animated about politics. She is Home with her Creator.

Her Christian family and friends will see her again “in the morning”.

 

A “Celebration of Life” will be held Saturday, October 19th at 11 a.m. at West

Shore Baptist Church, 21st & Market, Camp Hill, PA 17011. In lieu of flowers it is

suggested contributions be made in her name to: Alzheimer’s Association of
