Anne Mary Albaugh, of East 5th Street, Waterford, PA, passed away on November 9, 2012 following a nearly three-year battle with breast cancer. She lived her life as a wonderful daughter, wife, mother and friend. During her illness, she was able to carry on with dignity and courage, for she never forgot the many blessings she was fortunate enough to have bestowed upon her.

From January 1992 to August 2013, Anne enjoyed employment as the office manager of Glenn Troyer Farms/Troyer Sand & Gravel of Waterford.
A member of All Saints Roman Catholic Church, Anne’s hobbies and interests included cooking, crafts, golf, watching old movies and being with friends. Her greatest love was taking care of her family, especially being involved in the activities of her daughter, Gwendy. Anne will be remembered for her friendly, outgoing personality and her love of life.
