Alice L. Gannon (Fannie) (Clark)
Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother
It is with deep sadness to announce the peaceful passing of Alice L. Gannon, age 80, on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at UPMC Mercy Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA. Even though a failing heart took her away, she will remain in the hearts of her family and friends who loved her. Born December 4, 1940, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Clark and Emma (Edwards) Clark.
Alice was dedicated to her family and devoted most of her time to her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren, who meant the world to her. Spending time with them was one of her greatest pleasures.
She was previously employed by Pelican Inc., Derry, PA, for over 20 years. She was also a member of the American Legion, Post 515, Latrobe, PA, where she enjoyed the company of her friends and listening to her favorite songs. She loved music and dancing. She had a great sense of humor and was known to most people as 'Mom' or 'Gram'.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Larry J. Fannie, Sr.; her second husband Jack Gannon, her father-in-law, Fury Fannie; her mother-in-law, Thelma Fannie; three brothers, Harry Clark (Peggy), John Clark (Pauline) and Robert Clark (Betty); six sisters Margaret (Babe) Smith, Dorothy (Andy) Twinchek, Geraldine (Edward) Hart, Ethel (Charlie) Ziedler, Lottie Ernst, and Emmy Clark; and a “son-in-law”, Michael J. 'Spike' Hill, Jr.
Alice is survived by her son, Larry J. Fannie Jr. (Rosie) of Latrobe, and daughter, Laurie Fannie of Latrobe; four grandchildren, Justin Fannie (Amber) of Latrobe, Jason Fannie (Nina) of Greensburg, Zack Fannie of Latrobe, Taylor Stewart (David) of Blairsville; and four great-grandchildren, Carter Fannie, Keely Fannie, Chase Fannie, and Leah Fannie; brother-in-law, Gene Fannie (Liz); and sister-in-law, Maxine Joe; she is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
