Anne E. Koegel, a homemaker who was active in the affairs of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Hydes, died in her sleep Sunday at Rock Spring Village Assistant Living Facility in Forest Hill. She was 95.

She was born Anne E. Luber in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton. A graduate of St. Paul's Commercial School, she went to work in 1922 as a secretary at Commercial Credit Corp.

She was married in 1929 to William A. Koegel Sr., a vice president and secretary-treasurer of Commercial Credit Corp., who died in 1962.

In 1950, Mrs. Koegel moved to Affinity Farm in Glenarm, where she enjoyed canning vegetables and making braided wool rugs that won ribbons at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium.

Deeply religious, she was an active communicant of St. John, where she had been president of the Sodality, a lector, and a member of the Altar Society and the Parish Council.

In her 80s, she continued to volunteer at Stella Maris Hospice and Fallston General Hospital. She had accumulated 1,500 volunteer hours at the hospital and 2,961 hours at Stella Maris until stopping at 91, when she decided to give up driving.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 11 a.m. Friday in the chapel at St. John, 13305 Long Green Pike.

She is survived by her son, William A. Koegel of Glenarm; a daughter, Anne Pivec Case of Ocean City; eight grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
