Anne Sweeney Hasley Obituary

On Thursday February 16, 2023, Anne Sweeney Hasley, born 1924, Pittsburgh, and later of Amelia Island, FL.

Beloved wife of 72 years of Raymond G. Hasley. Mother of Nancy Hasley (Scott Andersen), Holly

Smith (James), and Kristen Gribble (Gary); grandmother of Matthew Smith (Hilary Rosenthal), Alison

Smith, Catherine Corbett (Chris Matteri), and Anna Corbett Southard (Michael); great-grandmother

of Lilly Anne and Milo Southard. Anne spent her childhood in Squirrel Hill, graduated from Peabody

High School in three years, and was a proud graduate of Carnegie Tech where she earned a Bachelor

of Science degree and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She was a member of the Kappa Kappa

Gamma sorority which she loved. Together with her husband (a principal partner with the law firm

Rose, Schmidt, Dixon & Hasley), Anne devoted herself to raising her daughters, befriending and

supporting abandoned animals, especially cats and dogs, and volunteering, particularly with the

Pittsburgh Opera including at the Operatunity Shop in Oakland. Anne was also devoted to her

parents, Kirwin and Helen Sweeney, and was the keeper of their family histories, rooted in Vermont.

Anne travelled widely with her husband; enjoyed perfecting her cooking skills and entertaining; and

insisted that her daughters pursue their educations and careers (which they did). Anne loved all

things with a Pittsburgh connection, listening avidly to Pirates’ games on the radio while she worked

in the kitchen. She had many lifelong friends, particularly from high school, college, Blackridge and

her many bridge groups including at Oakmont Country Club. She was a devout member of St. Irenaeus

Church.  Friends will be received at John A. Freyvogel Sons, Inc.  (freyvogelfuneralhome.com) 4900
