Ann “Honchee” Voyce, 96, of Simpson died Wednesday night at Allied Service Hospice, Scranton. She was the widow of Stephen “Cy” Voyce, who died in 2011.

Born in Simpson, she was the daughter of the late Andrew and Florence Kowalchik Kulick. She was a graduate of Fell High School, Simpson class of 1944.  Ann worked for many years as a waitress in the Catskill Mountains of New York for the Concord, Windsor, and Grossinger’s Hotels.
