March 31, 2018

Annie Marie Wilkinson, 79, of Leonardtown, MD was called home on March 26, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.

Born May 24, 1938, in Valley Lee, MD, she was the daughter of the late Thomas E. Springer and Annie M. Cecil Springer.

Ann, who was better known as Jiggy to her family and close friends, was an avid quilter and enjoyed crocheting. She worked for over 30 years at St. Mary’s Hospital, initially as a Unit Secretary and then as a Certified Pharmacy Technician, until her retirement. Jiggy loved to bake, especially during the holidays. When her grandchildren would come to visit, they would always find Grammy’s fresh homemade cookies on the counter. Jiggy’s baking skills shined through by preparing wedding cakes for most of her children as well as some friends. Ann was a devoted Catholic and member of the Ladies Quilting Club at St. Francis Xavier Church.

Annie is survived by her children: Joseph A. Jr. (Lisa) of Leonardtown, MD, Thomas A. (Christine) of Libby, MT, Patrick I. (Tracey) of Leonardtown, MD, Margaret (Maggie) Seifert (Joerg) of Darien, IL and Paul A.
