Anna Delphine O'Neill Obituary

Anna Delphine O'Neill, unexpectedly passed from this life on Wednesday, May 13, 2015. Born on August 19, 2000, in Sacramento, California, Anna was fourteen years old.

She is survived by her parents, Sean and Denise; her two sisters, Emily and Isabella; her brother Jack and her grandparents William and Marolyn O'Neill.

Anna attended Mount Saint Mary Academy in Grass Valley from preschool through 8th grade where her energetic spirit, her academic excellence, and her steadfast leadership will always be remembered by her family, peers, teachers, and principal. Anna's ambitious drive and tremendous intellect contributed to her insurmountable accomplishments: valedictorian, student body president, volleyball and basketball teammate and captain, recurring winner at Nevada County writing and speech tournaments, academic decathlon team member and captain, and choraleer soloist.

At Forest Lake Christian High School, where Anna was a freshman, she had already made her mark by climbing to the top of her class. Her extracurricular achievements included playing for varsity soccer, jv volleyball, and varsity basketball. Anna was also an integral member of her chamber choir.

Anna spent her summers with her family on Peaks Island, Maine, where she sailed for their competitive sailing team, she was also an avid pier jumper.

The O'Neills have been parishioners of St. Patrick Parish for the past 15 years where Anna has served as a member of the children's choir, as a lector, and as an altar server. Anna possessed every attribute that a parent, sibling, teacher, priest, coach, and friend would dream of and cherish. Her superior intelligence, ability to persuade, leadership abilities and quick wit will never be forgotten.

Always our angel on earth, Anna is now welcomed into Heaven, we anxiously await our reunion with her.

On May 18, 2015, the American Flag was flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC in honor of Anna O'Neill. The California State Assembly will also be adjourned in her memory.

Services will be held this Friday, May 22, 2015 at St. Patrick Church in Grass Valley, CA. The Rosary will begin at 1pm with the Funeral Mass to follow at 2 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the burial at St. Patrick Cemetery and a reception will immediately follow in St. Patrick Hall.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, we request that donations be made to the Saint Joan of Arc scholarship fund for students of Mount Saint Mary Academy. This scholarship was made in Anna's honor to further encourage and support academic excellence. More information can be found at http://www.gofundme.com/unh99h9s.
