Obituary of Annamae O'Callaghan
Annamae Catherine (McCartin) O’Callaghan, 79, of Lansdale, returned to her heavenly home on July 2, 2019, after a valiant battle with Parkinson’s disease. Her devotion to her family and her firm belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.
Annamae was born to the late George and Margaret McCartin, in Philadelphia, PA on June 21, 1940. She grew up in the Germantown section of Philadelphia and attended Immaculate Conception Elementary School and Little Flower High School. After high school graduation, she was the Executive Assistant to the Post Master General of the United States Post Office in Philadelphia.
Annamae was blessed with a large and loving family. She married the love of her life, Daniel O’Callaghan on May 13, 1961, and enjoyed 58 years of marital bliss. Annamae enjoyed raising her four children with unconditional love and playing a major part in her seven grandchildren’s (AKA 7 Darlings”) lives.
After the children were raised, Annamae returned to the workforce where she worked for Prosthodontics Intermedica in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. It was there that Annamae thrived as Patient’s Relations Coordinator for 30 years. Annamae retired in 2009.
