Ann Elizabeth Ollinger, 54, of Davenport, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at Trinity UnityPoint Health, Rock Island. The visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at Weerts Funeral Home, Davenport. Funeral service and burial will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 26, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Bettendorf preceding the burial at Mount Calvary Cemetery, Davenport.
Ann was born Aug. 2, 1964, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the daughter of James and Joanne Trcka. After graduating in 1982 from Regis High School, Cedar Rapids, she attended Mount Mercy College, receiving a B.A. in business administration. She furthered her education at the University of Iowa to receive a B.S. in the College of Pharmacy. Ann married Brian Ollinger on May 18, 1990, and started a family soon after. She devoted her career to 21 years as a pharmacist at Walgreens. Ann enjoyed book club, Starbucks coffee, her cat, going on walks, boating, traveling, bike rides, playing board games, going to Hawkeye football games and, most importantly, spending quality time with her husband and children. She reflected unyielding patience, honesty, positivity and never-ending love. She had a smile that lit up a room and a heart full of love which touched every person that she met.
Those left to honor her memory include her husband, Brian; her children, Myles, Mekenna and Mason; her parents, James and Joanne Trcka of Cedar Rapids; sisters and brothers, Lois Trcka and Tim Trcka, both of Cedar Rapids, Janet (Gary) Goodhall of Clive, Bob Trcka of Chaska, Minn., and Mary Trcka of Dallas, Texas.
Ann will be missed dearly by all of the friends and family's hearts who she touched over the years.
