Anne Lillian Clemmer of Bethesda, MD, 63, passed away on December 2, 2019, after losing the battle against pancreatic cancer, 28 days after the initial discovery of the tumor.
Anne was born in Connellsville, PA, daughter to the late Norman Clemmer (Dec. 1974) and Mary Louise Hickey Clemmer Fiesta.
Anne graduated from Connellsville Area High School, Class of 1974, and received her Bachelor’s degree from West Virginia University.
Anne’s work history includes: Candy Striper at Connellsville State Hospital (Volunteer); G.C. Murphy’s during high school; Archie’s Pizza in Morgantown, WV; Greensburg Saving and Loan, Connellsville; First Seneca Bank, Pittsburgh; Fannie Mae, Washington, DC. 1986-2008, when she first retired; Evans Inc. as a Senior Business Analyst (where she worked at the F.A.A.); and returned to Fannie Mae, 2012-2019, retiring once again.
She also volunteered for the Project Management Institute (PMI) branch in Washington, DC, of which she was a member.
Anne loved to travel, which included trips to France, Colorado, Canada, Barcelona, Spain, Martha’s Vineyard, Caribbean Islands, Hawaii (where she rode down a volcano on a bicycle), Italy (with the Clemmer and Fiesta Clan), Reykjavik, Iceland (where she rode a snowmobile across a glacier), Australia (snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef) and yearly summer beach vacations at Fenwick Island, DE.
