Anne Mary Minihan
April 22, 1945 - June 12, 2019
Anne Mary Minihan was born on April 22, 1945 in New York City, the daughter of Vito Morea and Mary Dillon Morea. She was raised in the Bronx, graduating from St. Gabriel’s grammar school in 1958, the Academy of the Scared Heart of Mary (Park Terrace) in 1962, and then went on to attend Hunter College.
On August 8th, 1964 she married Bill Minihan , to whom she was married for more than 54 years. They lived in the Chicago area for little more than a year, before returning to the Bronx (Riverdale) where their children were born: James, Anne, and Michael. On November 1st, 1971 they moved into a house in Ossining through the assistance of their cousin Carol DiVico who was a Real Estate Agent in Ossining. This still was her residence at the time of her death on June 12, 2019.
In December 1989, Anne experienced Kidney Failure. Dialysis was extremely problematic and, so through the selflessness of her daughter who donated one of her kidneys, Anne received a transplant in August, 1990. The cloud surrounding that silver lining was that the underlying cause of the Kidney failure along with the medications taken to prevent rejection of the transplanted kidney took their toll and contributed to the general slow decline of Anne’s health.
Annie was predeceased by her parents and her Brother, James who died in infancy.
In addition to the children she is survived by her Daughter-in- Law, Anna and her Son-in-law Christopher Shaw. Also surviving are the grandchildren, Olivia, Kristen, Ned, Mathew, Will, and Sean, each of whom she loved dearly.
Her Roman Catholicism was very important to her and Anne was very active in parish life. In addition to service in the Parent Guild, she was active in the CCD program teaching many children preparing them for the Sacrament of Confirmation. She also prepared many new parents by conducting Baptismal conference prior to the Baptism of their children. Also, Anne worked in the Chaplains’ office at the Westchester Medical Center, for many years.
Visiting hours will be held on Monday from 4:00-8:00 pm at Dorsey.
The funeral mass will be celebrated on Tuesday at 10:00 at St. Theresa’s Church in Briarcliff.
The interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
