The Life of Anne Marie Livingston
Anne Marie Livingston, 87, passed away on August 31, 2022 at Briarcliffe Gardens in Johnston, Rhode Island. Born in Philadelphia, she lived in Drexel Hill for nearly 80 years and prior to that in Yeadon. She was the daughter of the late George Ackerman Livingston and Anna Cunningham Livingston.
Anne graduated from Peirce School of Business in Philadelphia. She worked as an Executive Secretary at Penn Federal Savings & Loan Association, and then through mergers and acquisitions worked in various service and analytical positions at Metropolitan Federal Savings and Atlantic Financial. Before retiring she also worked for O.P. Schuman & Sons. She was a talented artist and her work was shown over the years at numerous art exhibits in the Philadelphia area. She loved local history, and in her retirement she was an active member, dedicated volunteer, and officer of Upper Darby Historical Society and also Friends of Sellers Hall which is dedicated to preserving the historical site of Sellers Hall in Upper Darby. In 2005, she received Upper Darby Historical Society’s “Debe Hill Award” which is presented to an individual with a major contribution to local history. Her interests were many and varied, and she was always willing to take on any challenge.
Anne is survived by many nieces and nephews, and by her good friends Mary Raterink and Beverly Rorer. She was predeceased by her brother Richard and sister-in-law Agnes Livingston, brother Robert and sister-in-law Mary Livingston, and by her longtime friend Helen Lilik.
