Ann Sue was a 1956 graduate of Elizabethville High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Lycoming College in 1960. She became employed as an elementary school teacher in the Hershey Area School District, and later at Four Mile Elementary School in Loyalsock. When her children became teenagers, Ann Sue earned her real estate license to work as an agent for Fish Real Estate for many years, where she was recognized by the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service Medallion Club. She finished her career where she began her collegiate schooling, spending six years as Lycoming College’s Director of Alumni and Parent Programs, where she launched the “Pave the Way” Alumni Brick Program. She retired in 2003 after honoring so many of her fellow Warriors and their accomplishments.
Ann Sue loved all things theatre and cinema. A talented singer, dancer, actor and musician herself, she loved to play piano and was cast in many shows with the Community Theater League, where she was also a longstanding supporter, and Lycoming’s Arena Theater. Whether performing or watching, trips to see Broadway shows, or locally as a longstanding supporter of the Community Arts Center, Ann Sue loved it all.
Ann Sue was a member of the Williamsport Country Club, Junior League of Williamsport, The Woman’s Club, and many local bridge and book clubs. She was a member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and enjoyed playing tennis and decorating her home with vibrancy, color and flare. Ann Sue’s distinctive and eclectic style could always bring a smile to your face. But most of all, Ann Sue was known locally and beyond for her talents in the kitchen, and specifically for making all varieties of pies, once shooting a video assisted by her son Michael on how to make the perfect pie crust.
