Anne moved from Pittsfield to Springfield as a young girl. Soon after graduating Classical High magna Cum Laude, she moved to Duxbury with her parents. She lived in Duxbury for 50 years. She was Chief Administrative Asst for the Duxbury Building Department, a job she held for 37 years. She also supported her family by selling Avon, another 30 year job.
In her spare time Anne loved to garden, ride her bike to work and back, and on weekend trips. She also loved to go for walks in the woods or along the cranberry bogs. She also enjoyed baking and everyone in the family looked forward to having her wonderful apple pie.
In 2001 Anne moved to South Meadow Village in Carver. She volunteered to deliver Meals on Wheels for the Carver COA. This was something she very much enjoyed and was able to do until very recently.
