Anne "Anna" Hollingsworth Pike, 90, an obstetrician-gynecologist who practiced in Germantown and taught at the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania, died Monday, June 27, at Lakeside at Willow Valley, a retirement community in Willow Street, Pa.
"All the doctors would send their wives to her," said Martha Biemuller, a colleague at the hospital and a friend for 55 years. "And she was a good teacher - all of the students wanted to scrub with her in the operating room, and she got awards from them, which is hard to get from students."
Dr. Pike was born in Moylan-Rose Valley and was the 1938 class valedictorian of Nether-Providence High School. In 1942, she graduated from Swarthmore College, where she was captain of the varsity field hockey team and a member of the basketball team. She also played clarinet in the college orchestra.
