Dr. Warren P. Howe

With a spirit of sadness, we together with the Howe family mourn the loss of our Board member and dear friend of our school, Dr. Warren P. Howe.  Dr. Howe so graciously gave of his time, talent, and treasure to advance the mission and vision of Annunciation Catholic School.  He not only served as a board member but also taught percussion to our scholars.  Dr. Howe through the Marilyn Howe Memorial Science fund has helped to build our STREAM initiative and advance our Science Program.


On the afternoon of June 4, 2022, Dr. Warren P. Howe passed away at the age of 80. Warren was born to Walter and Mary Agnes Howe in Washington, DC in 1942.
