Riverhead resident Anna C. Mickaliger died Oct. 6, 2020, after a short illness. She was 93.
Born Feb. 19, 1927, she was the daughter of Konstanty and Anna (Troski) Klodaski. She attended Riverhead High School. She married Charles Mickaliger Sept. 10, 1950.
Ms. Mickaliger was an operator with New York Telephone/AT&T for 50 years. She was known as “the voice with the smile.”
She was a member of St. Isidore R.C. Church in Riverhead, the Altar Rosary Society and the New York Telephone Pioneer Club.
She loved gardening, working with flowers, baking and making jams and jellies. She entered her jams in Riverhead Country Fair competitions for years and received many ribbons. Most of all, she loved spending time with family, especially her granddaughters and great-grandchildren. And she was a Mets fan until the end.
She was predeceased by her husband, Charles, on Feb. 14, 2011; her brothers, Frank, Connie, William and Joseph; and her sister, Peggy Perkins.
She is survived by her son, Charles (Teresa) Mickaliger; her granddaughters, Laura McBride and Kathryn (Paul) Reeve; and two great-grandchildren, Paul and Ellie Reeve.
The family received visitors Oct. 8 at McLaughlin Heppner Funeral Home in Riverhead. A funeral Mass took place the same day at St. Isidore R.C. Church, followed by interment at St. Isidore Cemetery.
