Anne Patricia (Yakel) Alban
July 1, 1945 - November, 6, 2020
On Friday, November 6, Anne Patricia (Yakel) Alban of Damascus, MD died unexpectedly, but peacefully surrounded by her family in the emergency room that she helped build as the Director of the Shady Grove ER for most of her career.
Born on July 1, 1945, in Baltimore, MD. Retired nurse and accomplished hospital executive working part-time in the Montgomery County Public School System. She received a nursing degree from Mercy Hospital and a Master’s degree in nursing administration from Central Michigan University. Graduated high school from the Institute of Notre Dame in Baltimore, Class of 1963.
Anne, also known to her family as Mom, Nana, and “Bunky” is survived by her husband, Miles of 53 years; her children Kristin of Clarksburg, Scott (Sabrina) of Urbana, and Eric of Damascus, MD. Her grandchildren Carter, Brooke, Jake and Sophia; her sister Mary Shores (Mark); and many beloved nieces and nephews; as well as so many extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents John Stanley and Anne Hurley Yakel of Towson, MD and her brother, William Yakel of Baltimore, MD and her beloved labrador retriever, Abby. Anne had many hobbies such as reading, gardening, and baking, but her happy place was with her friends and family in Nags Head, NC, where she owned a home since 1996. She loved “her beach” so much and, thankfully, spent a lot of time there this year. Anne was selflessly committed to her family and was often the glue that kept us all together. Her smile, energy and kindness will be dearly missed. We pray that she is at peace and together with her loved ones who have passed before her. We are blessed to have shared so many wonderful moments with her and we will carry these memories with us always.
A private church service will be held at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Damascus, MD.
In lieu of flowers, we ask donations in her name be made to the Washington Regional Transplant Community- www.beadonor.org or Lab Rescue- www.giving.lab-rescue.org.
