Ann M. (Harrington) CROSSMAN
February 26, 2023


Ann M. (Harrington) Crossman of Winthrop passed away on February 26, 2023, surrounded by her family, after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's. She was 80 years old. Born in Somerville on May 22, 1942, she was the daughter of the late Arthur J. and Rita (McGowan) Harrington.

Ann was the devoted mother of Jill A. Buccini of Winthrop. She was the adored Gaga of Ryan and Heather and mother-in-law of Brad Buccini. Ann leaves behind her sister, Rita Quirk and her beloved twin, Carol Adamson both of Winthrop and her late siblings Mary Harrington and Buddy Harrington. Ann was the cherished aunt of Robin Murphy, Kelly Adamson, Dawn Letterie and Tracy Carlsen and great aunt of Taylor, Shannon, Mark, Jake, and Jenna. Ann was the dear companion of the late Eugene Bonita.

Ann was a selfless woman who put family above all else. Her happiest moments were spent with her daughter and grandchildren. She loved nothing more than attending Ryan's sporting events and watching Heather perform on the stage.

Ann brought joy to everyone she encountered. Even during her illness, her love of dancing never stopped, and she was lovingly referred to as Dancing Annie. She was always happy, and never lost her sweet demeanor. She lit up a room with her beautiful smile and will always be remembered this way.

Special thanks for the care provided by Katzman Family Center for Living, Care Dimensions Hospice, and the Pace Program.
