Anne Bryan's accomplishments were many and varied.
She was a talented artist, majoring in painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She spoke fluent Spanish. She volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and moonlighted as a vegetarian cook.
On Thursday, her family was reeling from her death. Ms. Bryan, 24, of Lower Merion, was killed Wednesday, June 5, while shopping at the Center City Salvation Army thrift store crushed when the building next door collapsed during demolition work.
"She was a gentle soul and very concerned with social justice," said her father, John W. "In family discussions, she was always very concerned with doing the right thing."
