"Little Annie" as she was called by her family in South Philadelphia, had a lifelong love of art and received several awards for her talent. Her favorite times were spent in Wildwood Crest, N.J. where she and her husband Joe tended to their home at Buttercup and New Jersey Aves. The children would be treated to a delicious BBQ or a meal of crabs and macaroni during the summer. Then everyone would move to the big wrap around front porch for conversation and dessert taking turns on the rocking chairs. Anne loved walking and the family often followed her to the ice cream stand at sunset. "Oh those Wildwood Days!"
A Funeral Mass and celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Donations in Anne's name can be made to the Treasure Coast Food Bank in Ft. Pierce Florida or at stophunger.org or to a food bank of your choice.
