Annalee Hartman Notice

December 8, 1920 - September 3, 2016 Annalee Hartman was born in 1920 to Edna and Paul Keeley in Converse, Indiana. Together with her sister Betty, they had a happy childhood growing up during the depression years. Annalee and her mother Edna moved frequently and she attended three different high schools in as many cities in Indiana - Marion, Ft Wayne and South Bend. A cashier at the Granada Theatre in South Bend, Annalee met the love of her life in 1938, Bill Hartman, a native of Baltimore, MD and a student at the University of Notre Dame studying mechanical engineering. Married in Dayton, Ohio in 1942 following Bill's graduation, they moved to Baltimore and had their first two daughters, Nancy Lee and Sally Ann as Bill joined the Navy during WW II and served in the Pacific as a Lieutenant on the USS Dufilho. Reunited at Christmas 1945, they settled into life in the Northwood area of Baltimore and had daughter Kathleen Rose in 1946 and son Duke in 1952. Annalee was the consummate mother, wife and homemaker and loved her marriage to Bill for 69 years until his passing in 2011 at age 93. Gifted with her hands, Annalee was a remarkable cook and baker, expert at needlework and sewing and enjoyed many crafts including woodcarving, knitting and card games. She loved travel, road trips and seeing new places. She enjoyed sending cards to friends and family for every holiday and brought joy to those who received her cards with brightly colored stickers on the envelopes and interesting and heart-warming articles she collected and placed in the cards. Healthy, engaged, quick witted and eternally upbeat, positive and joyful, Annalee passed quietly on September 3, 2016 at age 95 and is survived by her daughters Nancy Carter of Grand Junction, CO, Sally Sexton of Baltimore, MD, Kathleen Holt of Hanover, PA, son Duke Hartman of Denver, CO, beloved niece Diane Middlesworth of Marathon, FL, ten grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Little Sisters of the Poor, 601 Maiden Choice Lane, Catonsville, MD 21228. A celebration of Annalee's life will be held at noon on Friday Sept. 9 in the Garden Room at Oak Crest Village. Arrangements by MacNABB FUNERAL HOME, P.A. of Catonsville.
