MADISON – Ann Marie Callahan, age 80, was called home by God on Sunday, March 9, 2003, after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born on January 9, 1923, the daughter of John and Stella (Ryan) McGann. Her passion in life was for our Lord Jesus Christ. She would never miss an opportunity to attend daily Mass or be with Our Lord. No one knew but she was a saint living amongst us. Always she had a sincere and compassionate concern for the welfare of others and always put others before herself. She was married in June 1944 to Eugene Callahan, and he preceded her in death on September 19, 1979. She and her husband farmed in the Hollandale and Barneveld areas from 1944 to 1960. In 1960 she began work at the Commercial/Marine Bank and worked there for more than 26 years. She so loved children that after her retirement she continued to do baby sitting for the next 12 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Eugene; and two brothers, Jack and Bill McGann.
