She also leaves behind two special people that she considered her bonus daughters, Tamara (Berger) Wickramasingha of Winchester, and Shiela (Kelly) Vaughn of Chelmsford.

Anne was a graduate of Oswego State College and was an elementary school teacher in her early career before marrying Dan and raising their 5 beautiful children. Anyone that came into Anne’s life was considered family. She positively impacted everyone that met her and could always find the silver lining.

Anne, or more commonly known as “Nana”, was an anchor for all and would tell anyone she met to call her Nana too. She enjoyed reading, political conversations, and spending time with her loving family. She loved antiquing and always enjoyed finding a good bargain. Nana was an avid Boston fan and wouldn’t hold back when they weren’t playing well. She will be missed terribly, and her legacy will live on in all of us.

Please join us to celebrate Anne on Monday, May 13th from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at the Blake Chelmsford Funeral Home, 24 Worthen Street, Chelmsford.
