Annmarie attended St. Thomas More Grade School followed by Daniel Gross High School then graduated from Wm. Jennings Bryan High School. She attended Capitol School of Hairstyling & Esthetics and earned her license as a Cosmologist.
Annmarie is remembered for her joy with that easy smile and distinctly infectious laugh, sure to improve anyone’s mood. She participated in many activities in her school years and served as a volunteer in many charitable events over the course of her life. Annie’s affection was limitless, caring for her family but especially her daughters Josephine and Rylee. Annmarie was loved deeply and she returned that love to the many families, friends, co-workers and acquaintances. The family was contacted by a Mother that stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and shared with us that for her, plus many other families felt that Annie was a blessing in their lives during a dark period for these families. She stated’ “She touched many lives while working at the House….and wanted to tell you that my family alongside other families scattered throughout the United States who are unable to attend the funeral that we are here with you and will forever love our Angel.”
Annmarie was a vessel of love and joy to the many of us who knew her and loved her. The hurt from this loss of this wonderful Mom, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend, acquaintance, and spouse is deeply felt. Quoting and abridging Carl Sandburg:
“Love is a little white bird
You can’t see it
And you know it’s there
Only by the faint whirr of its wings
And the hush song coming so low to your ears
You fear it might be silence
And you listen keen and you listen long”
Annmarie is our love, our little white bird, our angel and we will continue to listen for her song, her laugh for the many years to come. God bless and keep Annmarie and help guide her daughters for the future as her love is an energy that will remain with them.
