A fine and gracious lady, Anne Blair Bauer, of Sewickley, passed away peacefully on March 11, 2021. Born April 9, 1922, in Gladwyne, PA, Anne moved to Sewickley when she was 5 years old where she remained for the rest of her life. She attended Sewickley Academy and St. Catherine’s in Richmond, Virginia, where she was a member of the state field hockey team. She was preceded in death by her father, George Blair, her mother, Elizabeth R. Rodgers, and sister, Agnes R. Tuden (Arthur). Anne was devoted to her family, friends and dogs. After raising four children, Anne was able to realize her passion for collecting fine things. She co-owned Sewickley Traditions for 33 years with her son, Blair. She loved the thrill of the hunt and loved sharing her treasures with her customers and friends, all the while polishing her silver. Her kindness was legendary. She was the ultimate people person and never had an unkind word for anyone. She is survived by four loving children, G. Blair and Carl F. Bauer, Betsy (Dave) Quigley and Paige D. (Catherine) Bauer; adored grandchildren Amy (Matthew) Dwyer, Harper (Joseph) McGroarty, Meagan (Bradley) Soroka, Hayley (John) Burgh and Blair (Duncan) Montanti; cherished great-grandchildren Aiden, Connor, Hannah, Alex, Aiden, Emily and Tyler. Burial was private at Union Dale Cemetery with arrangements by Copeland’s. Friends will be received on April 18, 2021 at Sewickley Heights History Center from 2:00-4:00pm.
