The Wichita Eagle - - Obituaries -

84, beau­ti­ful mother and grand­mother, peace­fully en­tered eter­nal life sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily at home in the early morn­ing hours of Jan­uary 12, 2019. Rosary, 7:00 p.m., Thurs­day, Jan­uary 17; Fu­neral Mass, 10:00 a.m., Fri­day, Jan­uary 18, both at St. Fran­cis of As­sisi Catholic Church. Anne was pre­ceded in death by her lov­ing hus­band of 50 years, Robert "Bob"; daugh­ter, Mary; grand­chil­dren, Meg and Max, and other fam­ily mem­bers. She will be deeply missed by her de­voted chil­dren, Robert (Pat) Giroux of Bal­ti­more, Md., Thomas Giroux (Pa­trice) of Wash­ing­ton, D.C., John Giroux of Jer­sey City, N.J., Ed­mund (Azam) Giroux of Del­tona, Fla., An­gela Scheide (St­ef­fen) of Beth­le­hem, Pa., Anne (Paul) Jasin­ski of Wi­chita, Martin Giroux (Va­lerie) of West New York, N.J., Ray­mond Giroux (Norma) of Alexan­dria, Va., David Giroux of Wash­ing­ton, D.C. and Daniel (Chris­tine) Giroux of Wi­chita. She was a won­der­ful grand­mother to 23 grand­chil­dren: Nic, Bren­den, Jack, Ni­cholas, Patrick, So­phie, Kim­berly, Christo­pher, Sarah, Oliver, Ai­dan, Han­nah, Daniel, Gabrielle, Tay­lor, Jake, Robert, Alan, Gre­gory, Lau­ren, Alex, Caro­line, El­liot, and would have wel­comed her first great-grand­baby in Fe­bru­ary. She is also sur­vived by her lov­ing sib­lings, Carol Cam­muso of Worces­ter, Mass., Theobald McSheehy III of Columbia, Mo. and Patrick McSheehy of St. Louis, Mo. Anne was born and raised in Whitinsville, Mass., and earned a B.A. from the Col­lege of New Rochelle in New Rochelle, N.Y. It was dur­ing her first teach­ing po­si­tion where she met the love of her life, Bob. To­gether they raised 11 chil­dren. Bob’s de­vo­tion to Catholic lib­eral arts col­leges took the fam­ily from the east coast to Dubuque, Iowa, and North­ern Ken­tucky be­fore set­tling in Wi­chita, Kansas. Anne was a sweet, kind and pa­tient woman who loved ev­ery­one she came in con­tact with. She was a won­der­ful con­ver­sa­tion­al­ist and art lover. An avid pain­ter, Anne cre­ated hun­dreds of paint­ings dur­ing her re­tire­ment years, many of which she gen­er­ously gave to fam­ily and friends. Her great­est mas­ter­piece, how­ever, is her chil­dren, their spouses, and her grand­chil­dren. The fam­ily wishes to thank Made­line On­tiberos as well as the many care­givers from Harry Hynes Me­mo­rial Hospice who pro­vided ded­i­cated and com­pas­sion­ate care to Anne. Anne was an ac­tive ad­vo­cate for the rights of un­born chil­dren. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily re­quests con­tri­bu­tions be made to Birth­line, 339 N. Seneca Street, Wi­chita, KS 67203.
