Anna Josephine Rooney

Anna Josephine Rooney passed away on August 26th at the age of 83 years, surrounded by her loving family. Born in County Cavan, Ireland, Anna emigrated to the United States at the age of 19 “for a few years.” In New York, she met her loving husband Joseph Aidan. Aside from a brief return to Ireland for two years, she resided in Richmond Hill where she raised her five children.

Anna was the most devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was happiest surrounded by her family and friends, and always put others ahead of herself. She loved listening to Irish music, dancing, planting in her garden, crocheting, baking and volunteering countless hours at a soup kitchen in Manhattan.

Anna is survived by her children, Joseph (Jean Marie), Sean (Eidileen), Eileen (John) and daughter-in-law Mary Ann, as well as 13 grandchildren whom she absolutely adored. She is predeceased by her husband of 43 years, Joseph Aidan, as well as two sons, Vincent Paul and Kevin Thomas. She is also survived by her sister, Pauline and her brother, Timothy, as well as countless nieces and nephews.

Friends may greet the family on Sunday, August 30th from 2-6 pm at the Leo F. Kearns Funeral Home, 85-66 115th Street, Richmond Hill, NY.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the memory of Anna at Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill, NY at 10:15 am on Monday, August 31, 2020.

In lieu of flowers, the family of Anna Rooney request that memorial contributions or donations be forwarded to the following organization. Hope Lodge NYC 132 West 32nd Street New York, NY 1000
