Joe, I came across this beautiful story of your Mother's life while looking for a relative from Ireland named Tierney. As I read on I realized that this incredible woman was your Mother. I am so sorry for your loss and send you and your family my prayers. Linda
My deepest sympathy to the family. May God give you strength and peace.
I had the opportunity to care for Anne several times. My thoughts go out to the family and Lorena. What a life she had. I am fortunate to have had a chance to have met this strong woman. Mary Y.
Joseph, sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Anne's visits to Portland when you first moved here. What a great lady.
I worked with Anne at City National Bank. She was an exceptional woman who helped pave the way for those who followed her. RIP
My sympathy to you and your family, Joe, from a De La Salle classmate.
J.W., you probably don't remember me but we had lots of adventures as kids when you lived on Linwood Blvd. in K.C. My name was "Jody" then. I remember your mother very well and she had a huge influence on the lives of my sisters and my mother. Please accept my condolences on your loss. Gosh, time is such a thief!
My sympathies to the family. Anne was a strong woman who lived life to the fullest.
So sorry to hear of your family's loss. It sounds like Anne was a true inspiration. She surely will be missed.

I knew I had a lot of respect for Anne when we built homes together for an impoverished Mexican family thru Homes of Hope. We had a moment of anxiety together when I was assigned the connection of all the electrical wiring in the house, and when finished and Anne plugged it in with great expectation....but it didn't work! In the end, we found someone had unplugged the connection at the other end, and we had a great laugh over it!
I am glad Anne Angel crossed my path in this life and that I was blessed to share a few glimpses into the life of this amazing and inspiring woman. She was endued with a most beautiful spirit and will be sorely missed.
My deepest sympathies to Joseph and all of Anne's family. You are in our thoughts and prayers at this time of loss and grieving.

King James Version (KJV)
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.........13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.......24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;........ 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
I feel blessed and honored to be able to call this remarkable women a part of my family heritage. My heart is with Anne's grieving family and multitude of loving friends.
What a delightful story. I enjoyed it very much!
