Annie “Anne” A. (Bradford) Mullane – passed away at her home after a short illness, with her beloved family at her side.  The wife of the late William “Bill” P. Mullane, she was ninety – four years of age.

Born in Sedgwick, Maine, she was the daughter of the late George and Kate (Sylvester) Bradford. Raised in Maine, the family moved to Cambridge during her high school years, where Anne attended and graduated from Cambridge Latin High School.

Following graduation, Anne worked as a telephone operator with American Telephone and Telegraph Company.  While there she met a very handsome young man, Bill Mullane.  They married in 1952 and in 1955 they bought their home on the West Side of Woburn where they have remained over the years.  

They brought six children into the world to which they were dedicated and have been actively involved with throughout their lifetime.  After the youngest child was in junior high school, Anne returned to work at Caldor, where she served at the Service Desk for twelve years.

 

Not being one to stay idle for long, Anne volunteered at Winchester Hospital for thirty years. She continued to volunteer right up until February 2020.

Bill and Anne travelled over the years to Ireland on a couple of occasions, the Bahamas, and to various locations across America. They truly enjoyed themselves.

Anne was a faith filled woman and her kind, gentle and gracious ways were felt by many.  Anne established friendships that lasted throughout her lifetime. She loved her family, friends, neighbors and especially children.   Anne lived each day to the fullest throughout her ninety four years.

 

Sadly in addition to her husband Bill, Anne was predeceased by her dear granddaughter Jillian Sullivan and siblings Harold Ledien and Julia St. Clair.
