AnnMarie Lovasz lost her long fought battle with cancer when she succumbed to complications last week. AnnMaire, or Annie as most of her friends and family knew her, had successfully fought the dreaded disease for the past year. Annie died peacefully in the arms of her loving husband Greg, the love of her life. Annie and Greg were the songs of each other's lives, and they were just weeks away from their twentieth wedding anniversary when tragedy came. AnnMarie lived each day in the moment in the joyful service to her family, community, and her many friends. Annie was the consummate prayer warrior and advocate for all of those who faced similar life battles. Ann, as she fought her battle, could be found wrapped in one of her colorful scarves baking a meal or tray of cookies for those who were in similar turmoil. Ann and Greg were the proud parents of twin boys, Nate and Zach, who are the love and joy of their lives. Annie faithfully supported her boys' endeavors. She was always on the bleachers of their basketball and baseball games, of which they are the current reigning champions in both sports. She attended their championship game the week before her passing.
AnnMarie and Greg graduated from Norman High School in Norman, Oklahoma, Ann as part of the class of 1989 and Greg as part of the class of 1988. During her senior year of high school, AnnMarie served as student class president and was chosen by her peers as homecoming queen. Annie graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a degree in Journalism. It was there that she met Greg, her future husband, an accounting and finance major. They both worked in OU student services recruiting future Sooners to The University and gradually grew into each other's lives. Each served in the OU Greek Community, Annie as a Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Greg as a Kappa Alpha.
AnnMarie worked for the Anatole Hotel in Dallas serving as an event planner. Later Annie worked with the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) where she planned national and international events. When the twins came along, Annie gracefully assumed the role of mother while continuing as a part time consultant to YPO. She later took on motherhood as a full-time profession. AnnMaire and Greg were heavily involved in the community. Together they served as chairs of the Dallas Heart Ball and chaired events for The Trinity River Mission. Ann also served on an advisory board for fund raising for MD Anderson Cancer Center. AnnMarie was a devoted volunteer to her sons' school. She recently chaired the Hyer Carnival and was elected to serve as president of the Hyer PTA but was unable to fulfill the commitment due to her battle with cancer.
AnnMarie is survived by her husband Greg and their nine year old twin sons Nate and Zach of University Park, her parents Catherine and John Fagan of Norman, Oklahoma, her brother John Jr. and his wife Andrea of Denver, Colorado and their daughter Sydney, Ann's godchild.
As we celebrate Annie's life, we will cherish the love and memories she gave us all, how she touched each of our lives in a unique way and made all of us more conscious of who we are. Her strength and courage will never be forgotten. We will all miss her embrace because she was truly our hero. XOXO
A Mass of celebration of her life will be held at 10:00 am on Friday, June 13th at Christ the King Parish, 8017 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made to The Lovasz Head and Neck Cancer Fund at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas or a cancer charity of your choice.
