Obituary

Anne Marie Abraham, age 80, passed away peacefully and surrounded by family on October 5, 2018. Born May 26, 1938, Anne was raised in Brooklyn, New York by her parents, Harold and Frances Olsen. After attending Ladycliff Academy, Anne completed her Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the State University of New York - New Paltz and began her career teaching fourth and fifth grade students. Seeking new adventures, Anne pursued teaching opportunities in Colorado and California before settling in Phoenix, Arizona.

In 1965, Anne married Emil N. Abraham of Litchfield Park, Arizona, and focused on homemaking and raising their four children. Once her children were grown, Anne returned to the classroom to teach English as a Second Language to adult learners at Estrella Mountain Community College and was active in the women’s group at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. In retirement, Anne and Emil enjoyed summers in Colorado before settling in Payson, Arizona for the past decade.

Caring, compassionate, and a woman of strong Catholic faith, Anne frequently sought out opportunities to serve and improve the lives of those less fortunate. Anne enjoyed the simple things in life - a cup of hot tea, a good book, traveling to new places, and spending time with family and friends.

Anne is survived by her husband, Emil; four children, Daniel (Alyssa), Timothy (Michelle), Thomas (Judy) and Jean (Craig) as well as seven grandchildren.

Rosary will be recited at 10:30 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at Resurrection Catholic Church in Tempe, Arizona. In lieu of flowers, please make any donations to either the Humane Society of Central Arizona or St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Payson, Arizona.
