ANN (Noble) Hagan, of Strafford, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February, 25, 2023 surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren as the snow began to fall.
Born in Philadelphia, Ann was the daughter of the late Robert W. and Alice (Dibble) Noble.
After graduating from Haverford High School in 1951, she attended Penn State University. She graduated in 1955 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. She went on to achieve her Masters Degree and her Real Estate License.
Ann was married to Edward H. Bowen on November 21, 1959 and moved a few times before coming back to the area and eventually making a home in Media Pennsylvania, where she raised her children as a single parent.
Ann was married to Thomas G Hagan on May 12, 1984. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband with whom she shared 37.5 years of marriage, and her step daughter Diane Pugh (Cliff) and her brother Robert W. Noble, II.
Ann worked as a school teacher, spending the bulk of her career in the second grade at Aronimink Elementary School, Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, retiring in 1996.
Ann served for many years as a mentor to many of her fellow teachers that came after her, and seeing them succeed was a source of great professional satisfaction.
Ann’s heart and soul was for worshipping her Lord and Savior, and she was very active in her church, Church of the Savior, Wayne Pa. She lead Bible studies for the Womens Ministry, taught Joy in the Evening for many years, worked as a counselor during summer Vacation Bible Schools, and worked in the church library.
Ann’s greatest joys were caring for her grandchildren and her pets, and spending time with her friends and family.
