Anne N. Sweeney of Warrington lost her valiant fight against cancer on June 23, 2020. She died surrounded by her family: her daughter, Ellen, her son, Thomas, daughter-in-law Kathryn Larkin, and her two beloved granddaughters, Kate and Kara.

Anne was born July 24, 1937, in New York, NY, to Michael and Brigid Needham, both immigrants from Ireland.

Anne was the beloved wife of Joseph F. Sweeney, who passed away in 1997.

Anne is survived by her brothers James and John Needham and her sisters Jane McIreavy and Maura Needham. Anne was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Needham, and two brothers-in-law, Thomas Sweeney and David McIreavy.

Anne received her nursing degree at Bellevue School of Nursing and her B.S. from New York University. She was a nurse at Bellevue and St. Vincent’s Hospitals in New York City. She moved to New Jersey and served as the school nurse in the Cedar Grove School System and at Our Lady of the Lake School in Verona.

In her retirement, she moved to Bucks County where her greatest delight was caring for her granddaughters. Whether she was shuttling them to and from school, ice skating practice or the lacrosse field, she was immensely proud of their accomplishments.

Friends and relatives will be received Saturday morning at 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. at Robert Bellarmine Church, 856 Euclid Avenue in Warrington. The funeral Mass will follow immediately at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown in memory of Anne N. Sweeney, 595 W. State Street, Doylestown, PA 18901, Attn: Laura Kruger.

As a new PA resident, Anne helped me feel comfortable with taking Del Val's CLR's senior classes. We shared many classes together and enjoyed each other's company. We worked together on many VIA committees. I learned about her family's Italy trip and the many ice skating activities of her granddaughters. She was a good friend to me. I will definitely miss her.

Anne was such a vital, loving person. I worked with her for several years on the Designer House Guide Committee. She was always ready to step in where needed. I am so very sorry for the family's loss - you will all be in my prayers. Charlotte Keenan

Anne led our VIA book club monthly for years. What a prolific reader she was! Her insight, wit and intelligence made meetings a worthwhile experience. I'm sorry for your loss. Anne will be missed!
