Anne was born and raised in Scranton, Pa. Anne was a graduate of Marywood College. In Scranton, Anne met the love of her life, Charlie Speicher.

    Trish, Pete,Chip and Shaun,
    My heart went out to all of you when I heard about your Mom. I know that she is rejoicing in heaven with your Dad and the dinner club gang. She was always so good to Mom and all of us.
    May she rest now in peace.

    During our last “buttercup” weekend -just before CVD hit – we were so fortunate to visit Anne – she was laughing and showing us all her Virgin Mary statues – which were quite impressive! Of course , she was our honorary “buttercup” always enjoying our visits. We will miss her dearly and I promise, we will take good care of her loving daughter Tish.
    Love the Buttercups

    Dear Patricia and boys,
    Fond memories of your mother and mine, Helen Hill, as they were friends for many years. I recall babysitting you children at your homes in Endwell in the 1960s. I think that was the last time I babysat! Your mom as I remember was strong, vibrant, religious, fun, organized, and a great friend to my mom. It’s not easy loosing a parent and I wish you peace and happy memories. Love, Patty Hill Lapihuska

    Lou and I also have wonderful memories of our gatherings at OLA church in Endwell as well.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. 🙏

    Rest In Peace, Anne.

    Shaun, our hearts go out to you and your family. We remember your mom as a very kind and witty woman, a wonderful neighbor. She would stop and share her videos of her grandchildren and always have a kind word to share. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time.

  9. Linda Lyons

    Tish, Peter, Chip and Shaun,
    The Ulsh family expresses our prayers to your family in this difficult time. Our mother is heartbroken. They were friends over 60 years and Anne was a wonderful and devoted friend. Your mother was always kind, cheerful and helpful. She was a very independent lady and full of faith. I hope your memories will keep some joy in your heart. She lived a good life and you should be very proud of her.

    Virginia, Linda Ken, David and Greg
