Anna Civitico

March 18, 1966 - August 21, 2021

We created a GatheringUs memorial to celebrate the life of Anna Civitico. Collecting your stories and memories here will offer us great comfort. Click on the heart to let us know you were here and to receive email updates. Thank you for contributing to this lasting memorial. Please share photos you have of Anna here.

We are beyond grateful for the support we have recieved in the last few weeks in the lead up to Anna's passing. Amma touched so many lives in the 55 years she was on earth and I call myself incredibly lucky to be her daughter. We are kindly asking instead of sending us flowers, if you could make a donation in her name to Vincentcare. Please contact Emily or Lizzie for links/more information.
