Sept. 1, 1937 - March 16, 2014

Anne N. Zickl, a longtime volunteer in the Batavia area, died Sunday in Highland Hospital, Rochester, after a long illness. She was 76.

Her father, the late Robert E. Noonan, was the only Batavian to win election to the State Supreme Court.

Mrs. Zickl’s community activities ranged from human rights housing and day care to her role as coordinator in groups seeking the freedom of Associated Press reporter and Batavia native Terry Anderson, who was held hostage by terrorists in Lebanon for nearly seven years, starting in 1985.

She was also active with the Holland Land Office Museum and with a mental health program for elementary schoolchildren.

She is survived by her husband, Randolph P.; four sons, Robert R., R. Philip Jr., William G. and Donald E. Gugel; and a sister, Suzanne R. Noonan.

A funeral Mass will be offered at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Resurrection Catholic Church, 303 E. Main St., Batavia.
