Anna E. (Tuiskula) Pynnonen, 84, beloved wife of the late Vilho Pynnonen, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her family, on Thursday, October 7, 2021.

Born in Worcester and raised in Hubbardston, she was a daughter of the late Osmo and Elvira (Rajala) Tuiskula. Anna was a Gardner High School graduate and went on to enjoy her career as a librarian with the Worcester Public Library. Anna was proud of her heritage and was a member of the Finnish American Heritage Society of Rutland. Throughout the years, Anna traveled to Finland many times to visit family and friends. In her spare time she could often be found reading and gardening. During her retirement years, Anna enjoyed working in the bookstore at Old Sturbridge Village. Anna had a great love of animals and nature.

She will be lovingly missed and remembered by her two daughters, Karen Dolan and her husband, Michael of Wilbraham, with whom she lived and Lisa Pynnonen of NY; Anna was predeceased by a daughter, Sandra Pynnonen of Florida; her two brothers, Warren Tuiskula and his wife, Janet of Fitchburg and Wayne Tuiskula and his wife, Amy of Cherry Valley; a sister, Carol Jenkins of CA; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband of 44 years, Vilho and her parents, Anna was also predeceased by two brothers, Ronald and Osmo Tuiskula.

A graveside service will be held at Worcester County Memorial Park, 217 Richards Avenue, Paxton where she will be laid to rest beside her husband. In keeping with her love of animals, memorial donations may be made to an animal shelter of one’s choice. Arrangements are under the care of Miles Funeral Home, 1158 Main Street, Holden.
