Anna V. House

July 1, 1927 ~ March 14, 2019 (age 91)

Anna V. House, 91, of 134 W. Arch Street, St. Marys, PA formerly of Emporium, PA passed away at Pinecrest Manor, St. Marys, PA on Thursday morning (March 14, 2019). She was born July 1, 1927 in Montmorenci, PA, a daughter of the late Fred and Margaret Fitch Launer Jr.  On February 27, 1947 in Johnsonburg, PA she married the late Percy House.

Anna joined Sylvania in Emporium during the WWII war years where she worked nearly 20 years prior to her retirement. There she worked with her husband Percy, with whom she shared long and happy marriage. Together they raised seven children with most of those years spent in Rich Valley. Later moving to Emporium for a short period, they then settled in Bellefonte for about 25 years where she had the enjoyment of watching grandchildren participate in sports activities and ultimately had the privilege of attending their weddings. Later in life, she returned to Saint Mary’s where she greeted a generation of great-grandchildren who brought her great joy. Anna never wavered in her love and devotion to family and friends. She serves as a wonderful example of life well lived. She credited her Swiss heritage for her independent spirit and will be greatly missed by all.
