Far too many memories to share, but what stands out the most for me is Annrita's love for her family, and her proud Irish heritage. We have many fond memories of sharing Irish dinners together! Ryan is known for wearing his Irish cap. All of our family attending the Hartford St. Patrick's Day parade, and stopping by after to visit with Nann & Gramp in our Irish garb. Family time meant the world to Annrita, as did her children and grandchildren, she rarely passed up an opportunity to visit with us. Which is really making this a tough time for our family, our hearts are broken, but we are certainly grateful for having so many wonderful years together. RIP Annrita! we all miss you! Love, Cara (daughter-in-law)

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a real lady and great friend. We worked together for many years at The Travelers and my kids grew up knowing that when they called Dad at work, they would first get a chance to talk with Annrita. Sometimes that appeared to be the only reason for the call. We all have great memories of those years and send our deepest sympathy for your loss.
