Anne J. Cannon,  a 55-year resident of Chalfont, Pa., passed away Monday, May 4, 2020, due to complications with the COVID-19 virus. She was 85 years young.

The oldest of eight children born to the late Bertha (Sadleir) and Elmer F. Hansen in Philadelphia, Pa., "Annie" was the beloved wife of the late Francis "Frank" Cannon. She also was the loving mother of six sons including Fran (Mary Alice), Thomas (Karin), Robert (Marilou), John (Patti), and Chris (Carrie). She was preceded in death by her fourth oldest son, Timothy.

Annie was a devout Catholic and could often be seen inside St. Jude Parish in the middle section, aisle seat, during a typical Saturday P.M. Mass.

Her passions included taking cruises, visiting Las Vegas, singing to the Oldies, crocheting, and driving Cadillacs. But above all else, she adored her six sons and was never shy was about letting the world know: her email address was and her license plate proudly proclaimed "6 Sons." She also was blessed with 10 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

I would always see Anne and one of her
sons at the 12:00 PM Mass at St. Jude's.
We always gave each other a hug or a wave
when seeing each other. I also thank her
sons for taking her to Church.

Anne was a faithful member of St. Jude's parish and I knew her for many years and would stop and talk with her before Mass. She had great faith and was a wonderful kind person. Her greeting always made me feel special and she truly loved her large family and was a dedicated mother. I will miss her "sign of peace" and seeing her during Mass. I'm sure she is with Our Lord and resting in his peace.
