Anne Hamill Maricle
Anne Hamill Maricle passed away on Saturday, September 26, 2015, after fighting cancer for over a decade.

She is survived by her husband, Christopher and her two children, Sarah and Nicholas; her parents, Frank and Joan Hamill; her brothers, Anthony, Matthew and John; and friends too numerous to count.

Anne was born on All Saints Day, November 1, 1959, symbolic of her lifelong faith. She was active from an early age, and not afraid to rough and tumble with her brothers. After finishing high school near the top of her class, Anne graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from Santa Clara University, and went on to earn a Juris Doctorate. She was not a bookworm - she took time from school and work to enjoy roller coasters, skydiving, bungee-jumping, piloting an airplane, hot air ballooning, and her favorite – snow skiing.

Early in her career, she clerked for one of the best federal trial court judges in the country in Reno, Nevada, and went on to serve in the Consumer Advocate's Office of the Attorney General for Nevada. When they saw how effectively she battled against energy rate increases, Nevada Bell recruited Anne on the spot.

In Reno she met Christopher at St. Albert's Parish, and they were married in July, 1996. By the time Sarah was born, Anne had already been promoted to Pacific Telesis Senior Counsel. Her professional star was rising. She soon gave up that career for a higher calling. In summer 1999, she became President and CEO of the Maricle household, taking full time responsibility for Sarah and Nicholas. She home-schooled her children for several years, and like everything she did – she poured her all into this work, with great results.

Anne was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, but she refused to be defined by that condition. Anne's self-discipline was tremendous, and she did everything possible to stay healthy for as long as possible. She often surprised doctors who could not reconcile the patient in the paperwork with the charming, intelligent, optimistic, and determined woman before them. The strength to do this came from her faith in Jesus and her love for God. This was the absolute core of Anne's life. She loved God, prayed constantly, and modeled the values of compassion and service in all that she did.

We miss her so much.
