Ann (Knauff) Finkbeiner - N. Chili, NY - Rochester Cremation

Brockport, NY: God called one of his beautiful angels, Ann (Knauff) Finkbeiner, home to heaven on Monday, April 12, 2021. Her faith was as beautiful as the flowers that she loved so much, and her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her. She is remembered as a loving wife to Clarence E. Finkbeiner; mother to Heidi Early, Tricia Sanborn (Keith), and Jill Boadway (Tom); grandmother to Justin, Jaime, Brianna, Aiden, Abigail, and Madelyn; as well as a sister to Joseph Knauff (Karen) and deceased Noel Knauff (Renee); sister-in-law to Jean Bickel (Bob); many loved nieces, nephews and cousins.

Those who knew her were touched by her joy for life and an unwavering faith in God, seeing his hand in all of life’s little moments. She enjoyed being with people and sought comfort in helping others.  Her vibrant personality was expressed through her love for music and dancing. She leaves her perpetual mark by passing these gifts on to her adoring family.

Family, friends and others whose lives Ann touched are invited to gather at St. Christopher Church 3350 Union St. North Chili, NY 14514 on Monday, May 3rd at 10:00 a.m. to celebrate Ann’s Mass of Christian Burial. Out of respect for one another, masks will be worn and social distancing observed.  A memorial celebration will be held after mass from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm at Sunnyside Lodge in Black Creek Park 3835 Union St., North Chili, NY 14514 for anyone who would like to attend.

Flowers can be accepted at church or memorial contributions contributions can be made in her name to the St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center, 417 South Ave, Rochester, NY 14620

    My Harmonious Heidi! I did not have the pleasure of meeting your mother. I did in fact know that she was an Amazing Woman through the ways of her Wonderful daughter- YOU! I am sadden by your loss, but I am praying that you and your family are comforted through this trying time by smothering love and fond memories of your Amazing Beautiful Mother with family, neighbors and friends.
