Anne Marie devoted her life to St. Angela Church where she was active in the Legionary, The Holy Family, Senacle, and Charismatic groups.  She enjoyed traveling with her church family to many destinations across the states and abroad and cherished spending time with her grandchildren as they grew. Anne Marie will be missed for her loyalty to friends and family, her generosity, kindness and compassion to everyone she encountered and how she lovingly and selflessly cared for her family’s every need.
