Ann Marie O’Con­nor McHugh, 91, of South Scran­ton, passed away Satur­day, sur­rounded by fam­ily and the sis­ters of Holy Fam­ily Res­i­dence, where she has peace­fully resided for the last two years. For 34 years, she was mar­ried to Thomas A. McHugh, who died in 1985.

Born in Scran­ton on April 6, 1926, she was the proud daugh­ter of the late Dr. Joseph and Mary Rose O’Con­nor. She was an avid vol­un­teer and mem­ber at St. John the Evan­ge­list Church un­til its clos­ing, and later St. Paul of the Cross Par­ish.

A grad­u­ate of St. John’s High School and Lack­awanna Busi­ness School, she spent her early years work­ing along­side her hus­band at Par­tridge and Wirth and Econ­omy Blue, but her hap­pi­est years were spent at home, rais­ing her fam­ily.

Ann lived her life sur­rounded by a won­der­ful close-knit group of lov­ing friends whom she trav­eled with, lunched with and laughed with. Ann was the proud ma­tri­arch of the McHugh fam­ily. Her love and de­vo­tion to her fam­ily was un­matched. She was in con­stant mo­tion, trav­el­ing be­tween Scran­ton, Clarks Sum­mit and Mas­sachusetts to en­sure that she was a con­stant fix­ture in all her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren’s lives.

She is sur­vived by her three chil­dren, Mary Beth Hen­gler, Old Forge; Thomas McHugh and wife, Mar­i­anne, Clarks Sum­mit; Kath­leen Cu­sanelli and hus­band, Robert, Mas­sachusetts; seven grand­chil­dren, Kath­leen Scan­lon and hus­band, Pa­trick, Old Forge; Pa­trick, Thomas and Robert Cu­sanelli and Megan McHugh, all of Mas­sachusetts; Kath­leen and Kelly McHugh, both of Clarks Sum­mit; and three great-grand­chil­dren: Pa­trick, Lyah and Grace.

She was also pre­ceded in death by three broth­ers, Joseph O’Con­nor, Esq., John O’Con­nor and Paul O’Con­nor.

The fam­ily would like to ex­tend their deep­est and most heart­felt thanks to the staff, nurses and sis­ters at Holy Fam­ily Res­i­dence. The com­fort and care they pro­vided to both Ann and the fam­ily is whole­heart­edly ap­pre­ci­ated. A spe­cial thank you to Sis­ter Lau­rel­liya, who has carved a spe­cial place in our hearts.

The funeral will be Tues­day with Mass of Chris­tian Burial at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel at Holy Fam­ily Res­i­dence, 2500 Adams Ave., cel­e­brated by the Rev. E. Fran­cis Kelly, chap­lain, fol­lowed by in­ter­ment at Cathe­dral Ceme­tery.

Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Mon­day or from 9 to 10 a.m. Tues­day at Holy Fam­ily Res­i­dence. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily en­cour­ages me­mo­rial con­tri­bu­tions to be made to Holy Fam­ily Res­i­dence for all of the amaz­ing work they do.

Ar­range­ments, Neil W. Re­gan Funeral Home Inc., 1900 Pittston Ave., Scran­ton, PA 18505.
