Ann Stevick of Swarthmore passed away peacefully at home on December 21, 2018. She was 88.
Ann was born October 11, 1930 to Mae (Douglas) and William Dutch and raised in Elyria, Ohio. She was the youngest of four.
Ann married her high school sweetheart, the late Philip Stevick, in 1953. They started their family in Ohio, but spent most of their lives in Doylestown, Pa., where Ann was a homemaker before re-entering the workforce as a bookkeeper in various industries. She moved to Swarthmore in 2008.
She was a loving mother who especially enjoyed spending time with her five grandchildren. She enjoyed volunteering at the Swarthmore Public Library, working out at the “Y” with her daughter, Jane, walking around town, socializing with her friends at the Strath Haven Condominiums and solving jigsaw puzzles. Ann will be remembered for her many qualities, but most of all her resilience.
Ann is survived by a sister, Jean (James) Webster of Dayton, Ohio; sons Terry (Eileen Drennen) of Lafayette, Ind., and Tom (Angela Oster) of Rocky River, Ohio; daughter Jane (Josh) Cohen of Swarthmore; and grandchildren Nick Stevick of Philadelphia, Pa.; Rachel Cohen of Brooklyn, N.Y.; Ruthie Cohen of Swarthmore; Leah Cohen of Swarthmore; and Sylvie Stevick of Rocky River, Ohio.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Friends of the Swarthmore Public Library, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081.
