Anne was a truly exceptional young woman. She graduated from Dulles High School where she was honored as athlete of the year. At age 17 she decided to become a firefighter and nothing was going to stop her. Her determination and perseverance to overcome obstacles to achieve that goal was remarkable. She bravely died in the line of duty doing what she was meant to do.
Anne was fiercely loyal, loving, compassionate, courageous, trustworthy, funny, stubborn, tenacious, kind, spiritual, athletic, and a true friend. She will be deeply and forever missed by the many people whose lives she so positively impacted.
She was the beloved and cherished daughter of Mary Moore Sullivan and Jack Sullivan. She is also survived by her brothers, William and Thomas; a sister, Kate; and grandmother, Shirley Moore Perry.
Anne's family believes her memory is best served by establishing a living legacy honoring Anne and all firefighters by working with the Houston Fire Department to create the Anne McCormick Sullivan Memorial Scholarship to encourage young women to enter the noble profession of firefighting. This fund will be established in the near future.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 2:00 PM, Thursday, June 6, 2013, at St. Laurence Catholic Church, 3100 Sweetwater Blvd., Sugar Land, with the Rev. Drew Wood, officiating.
