Anne Mirsch(nee) Duffy, of Wyndmoor, PA, age 91, on February 11, 2023. Beloved wife of the late George; loving mother of Marianne Sypniewski (David), Maureen Leonard (Edward), and Kevin Mirsch (Eileen); and devoted grandmother (Mom-Mom) to Audra, Madeline, Casey, Eddie, Jack, Caroline, and Michael. She was the daughter of John J. and Mary (Corcoran) Duffy and younger sister of Rev. John J. Duffy. She is survived by several nieces and nephews. Anne began her stellar academic career as a scholarship recipient to Cecilian Academy, followed by four years at Chestnut Hill College, excelling academically in a Mathematics major and athletically on the basketball court. Upon graduation, she began teaching math at Penn Treaty Junior High School where she met George, her future husband. They married on December 26, 1955 and began to raise their family. During this time, she continued her involvement with her alma maters as an active alumnae participant and supporter. Anne was awarded the Eleanore Dolan Egan ’28 Award for Outstanding Service to Chestnut Hill College in June 2007. Anne remained a loyal friend to many of her classmates and was a supportive caretaker to her parents, in-laws, and several aunts and uncles. Once her children were in school full-time, Anne began teaching math at Mount St. Joseph’s Academy. In addition to her classroom responsibilities, she tutored many a young teen at her dining room table, many of whom were accepted into the universities of their choice. In her free time, Anne enjoyed tennis, Bridge, the orchestra, the Jersey shore, the daily crossword, and her evening Manhattan. Anne was a devoted member of Our Mother of Consolation, serving as a lector and member of the Altar Society. The family would like to thank the compassionate staff and residents at ACTS/Ft. Washington Estates where she spent her last years with George. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Mother of Consolation on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 10:00 AM. Visitation will begin at 9:00 AM. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in memory of Anne to Chestnut Hill College.
A beautiful tribute to an accomplished and clearly amazing person! Much love from the Asbury Family.
