Anne was born in New Haven, CT, the daughter of the late Thomas and Mary (Cassel) Doherty. After high school she furthered her education to become an RN at Hospital of St. Raphael in New Haven, CT. On June 16, 1951 she married Louis Hylwa; a blessed union of over 62 years until his passing in 2014. Anne and Louis had moved to Seneca Falls shortly after they married and began their life together. Anne worked as a secretary for St. Patrick's school for several years before taking employment as an RN at Taylor Brown Hospital in Waterloo. She retired from the hospital in 1982.
She was an avid crafter who enjoyed making items with her friends and selling them at various craft fairs in the area. Her family has many treasured Christmas ornaments that she had made for them over the years. She loved bringing her family together. Whether it was to celebrate holidays, birthdays, Sunday dinners, or any other occasion, she was just glad that all of her family was able to be together. Her turkey stuffing recipe has become a family tradition for all.
Anne is survived by her children, Claudia Perrault, Mark (Christie) Hylwa, John Hylwa; grandchildren, Melissa and Jason Perrault, Sara (Christopher) Hylwa Deufel, Lynn (Matthew) Hylwa Sterchak, Keith Hylwa, Lindsey Hylwa; great-grandchildren, Trevor Perrault and Jane Deufel; as well as several nieces and nephews and extended family. In addition to her parents and husband, Louis, she is predeceased by her brother, Donald (Kay) Doherty; sister, Margaret (Ed) Carey; and daughter-in-law, Elaine Hylwa.
