Anna Marie McKeirnan was born in February of 1928 in a small rural area in northern Pennsylvania. She was raised on a farm in Bush Hill with 5 sisters and 2 brothers. She worked for Sylvania in Emporium, PA. Ann married Oliver “Ollie” Pettenati in 1949. In 1963, they moved to Silver Spring, MD to raise their 5 children.

Ann enjoyed traveling/school field trips, crafting with ceramics, leather, eggs, and collecting swizzle sticks.

She is survived by her 5 children: Tomi, Jeff (Erin), Pete, Cully (Dana), and Trina (Larry); 5 grandchildren: Evan (Ashley), Maddie, Oliver (Leigh), Quinn, and Joey; her newest addition, a great-grandchild, Logan: her siblings: Julia Faes, Chuck McKeirnan, and Patty Perrine; and many nieces and nephews.
