Obituary for Anne B. Coyne

Anne Besand Coyne, 75, of Ligonier and Pittsburgh, passed on Tuesday, June 12th, at UPMC Presbyterian surrounded by family, friends, singing and story-telling when released from life-support after battling complications from a minor surgery May 3rd.

She was born on June 10th, 1943 in St. Louis to Melvin and Hilda Owen Besand. Wife of 40 years to Paul, mother to Bridget Coyne (spouse, Isaac Slyder) and Patrick Coyne (spouse, Kelly), grandmother to Emmett and Leo Coyne, also survived by a large extended family on all sides.

Anne was the proud owner of Ligonier Pharmacy for over 30 years, the only independent in town. She enjoyed traveling and was looking forward to meeting her sisters, Flo, Marian and Hilda, who lovingly called her “Bing,” in Cape Cod this summer. She then planned to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights and attend the Elfschool. She loved her book club, daily mass with Paul, game nights in Nags Head, and a good laugh from being teased by her rotten children about her cooking and her duck sweatshirt. “Oh, Bridgie!”

Friends will be received on Saturday from 5-8 PM at Kanai Funeral Home, 500 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh, PA and on Sunday from 3-7 PM at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 342 W. Main St, Ligonier, PA, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday at 10 AM.
