Obituary

Aston, PA—Sister Anne Dorice DeFebbo, OSF (72), died in Assisi House on May 18, a few days before her 73rd birthday. She had been a professed member of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia for 48 years. Sister Anne Dorice (Anna Mary DeFebbo) was born in Steubenville, Ohio, but grew up in Weirton, West Virginia, where she was a member of Sacred Heart Parish. She entered the congregation in 1969 and professed her first vows in 1972. Sister Anne Dorice studied nursing at Allegheny Hospital where she earned her R.N. She later earned a B.S. in Nursing from Neumann University and an M.S. in Medical-Surgical Nursing from the Catholic University of America. She ministered primarily in healthcare as well as pastoral, parish, and social service ministries.

Sister Anne Dorice ministered for 13 years in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. She served as a nurse at the former St. Mary Hospital in Philadelphia. More recently she ministered as associate director of pastoral services for the Sisters of St. Francis, based in Aston.

Sister Anne Dorice ministered for four years at St. Francis Hospital in the Diocese of Wilmington where she served as a staff nurse and later as head nurse in the ICU Department. During her nine years in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, she ministered at St. Joseph Hospital School of Nursing in Towson as an instructor.

Sister Anne Dorice’s work in parish ministry and social services took her to St. John’s, Antigua, where she served at Holy Family Cathedral Parish, and to the Dominican Republic where she ministered at Santa Teresa de Jesus in Provincia Elais Pine.

Prior to assuming her position at Our Lady of Angels Convent in Aston, Pennsylvania, Sister Anne served as a caregiver for her mother.

All services will be held in Assisi House, 600 Red Hill Road, Aston, Pennsylvania, 19014 on Wednesday, May 20. Services will be private. Sister Anne Dorice is survived by her sisters, Sister Lorraine Therese DeFebbo, OSF, and Paula Leonard; by her brother, Kevin DeFebbo; and by her Franciscan family.
