Anne was a loving wife and mother. She was a longtime dedicated member of St. John the Baptist church in Ottsville, PA where she pilgrimed to sites of Rome Italy, Lord’s France and the Holy Land. Anne was a member of the Altar Rosary Society, an active pro-life supporter, a Minister to the homebound, a member of the Legion of Mary, Catholic Charismatic Prayer Group as well as the American Legion Auxiliary. Fatima House held a place deep in Anne’s heart as she professed her vows as a Lay Apostolate.
Anne was immensely proud of her family, dedicating her life to her husband, children and later in life grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, loving her role as “Nana”. It was always Anne’s gentle way to give a handwritten note or card of wonderful wishes and prayers for special people in her life.
In Anne’s free time, she enjoyed fishing alongside her family, be it with her brother or grandchildren. She especially enjoyed cheerleading the athletes in her family. She liked sewing, reading, gardening, crocheting (baby booties), painting, riding her golf cart and animals, especially “Hopie” who spent most of her time by her side as they relaxed in the easy chair looking out toward the pond at God’s beautiful creation.
Lastly, Anne will always be remembered for her quick wit, generosity, advocacy, enjoyment of celebrating life with others and her undying desire for us all to grow deeper in relationship with God. ~
