Anne Marie (D’Arcangelo) Hyland, 78, of Cherry Hill died on Saturday, May 11, 2019, surrounded by family. 
She was raised in Cedar Brook, N.J., and graduated from St Joseph’s High School and participated in various activities, including her favorite, which was cheerleading.  She then attended St. Francis College in Loretto, Pa., and after graduation moved to Washington, DC, to attend the Georgetown Law Center.  After her first year, she decided that the law was not for her, and returned to Cedar Brook and embarked on a teaching career for the Winslow Twp.

She participated in the Anti-Poverty Program, teaching students in West Atco and was voted “Teacher of the Year.”  She earned credits for her Master’s Degree at Glassboro State Teacher’s College (Rowan University) and then taught at Heritage Middle School in Cherry Hill after her marriage in 1969 to attorney Richard S. Hyland.  She was devoted to her children and their education and was a fixture of their schools’ PTA events. After raising her children, she was employed by the US Census Bureau as an interviewer for its health survey.  Her sunny disposition and friendly manner put participants at ease even when asking for medical information, a talent recognized by the Bureau.
