A Mass of Christian Burial for Ann Truby Schuller, 80, a former Buffalo resident who was a dress designer for members of the Ziegfeld Follies based in New York City, will be offered at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, Parker and Parkside avenues.

Burial will be in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Town of Tonawanda.

Miss Schuller died Monday (Dec. 17, 1990) in Buffalo General Hospital after a short illness. She had returned here two years ago.

Miss Schuller attended local schools and graduated from Hutchinson Technical High School. Shortly afterward, she moved to New York City, where she became a dress designer for the Ziegfeld Follies.

She also operated her own dress shop on 42nd Street, called Ann Truby Schuller's. At one time she had two locations in the city.

From 1970 to 1980, she served as the treasurer of the Ziegfeld Club, composed of former members of the famous follies.

She also was active in the Business and Professional Women's Club of New York City and was instrumental in initiating Sunday afternoon art shows in Brooklyn Heights.

Miss Schuller is survived by her brother, George of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
