Ann Margaret Donnellan, 85, passed away at 3:42 am, home in bed on Sunday, November 15, 2020, due to natural causes. Her children Paula, Kathleen and John were at her side. She was born in Holyoke, MA, to Raymond & Margaret Clancey. In August 1954, she married the love of her life, Joseph P. Donnellan, who preceded her in death in 2017. She was also predeceased by her brother James J. Clancey, and her 2 year old daughter Teresa. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Mary Gosselin; 7 children, James, Diane (& Burt), Margaret, Paula, Kathleen, Timothy (& Betty) & John; 13 grandchildren, Shawn, Justin, Daniel, Jessica, Lisa, Michael, Katherine, Spencer, Quinten, Jennifer, Gabrielle, Zachary, Brendan; and 10 great-grandchildren, Jaiden, Aisen, Aspen, Palmer, Noah, Rory, Paxton, Emma, Luke, & Lena. She raised her family in Ludlow, MA; and was a trailing spouse when Joe transferred to, Altamonte Springs, FL, Manchester, NH and then finally retired in Port Orange, FL. She attended the Elm’s College in Chicopee, MA; worked many customer facing jobs as she absolutely loved talking with people; was active in Al-Anon; and held many ministries in the Catholic Church. She loved family, the beach, Irish tunes, throwing parties & laughing. She had many quotes but when she said ‘jaysusmarynjoseph’ the kids thought she was swearing but she insisted she was praying! ;) She was a happy, positive person with a beautiful spirit. Now we bid a tearful farewell with this Irish Blessing, ~Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam~ May her soul be at the right hand of God.
