With her hard work and amazing dedication, she was able to achieve recognition on the Dean’s list every semester. She was a self-assured student who always welcomed a challenge and pushed herself creatively.

She was a lover of art, a diva of fashion, a traveler of the world and had a smile that could light up a room! In her spare time, Annie worked at Corinthian Events and Compton Clam Bakes. Additionally, she loved baking and shopping and finding that special thrift store treasure. Most of all, she loved her family and friends and took care of everyone around her.

Annie is survived by her loving parents Jill and Rich and dear brother Marshall; her maternal grandmothers, Joani Clymer and Ann R. Flather; an aunt, Jennifer Flather and husband Kevin Snodgrass; an uncle, Buck Flather and wife Karen and their children, Ashton, Kayden and Cole Flather; an uncle, Michael Tate and wife Laura and their children, Chelsey, Meghan and Gavin Tate; an aunt, Sandra Parsons and husband Michael and their children, Patrick and wife Trista Tate, Derek and Chloe Parsons; an aunt, Frances Figueiredo and husband Angelo and their children, AJ, Jeffrey Kullas and wife Laureen, their daughter Darla; an aunt, Laura Tate and her children, Jeffrey and Allysa Gouvia; a super tight extended family from New England and Ireland.

My deepest sympathy to the Tate family.

Annie was a classmate of mine and I will always remember her beauty and strong work ethic. She was an intelligent, natural-born leader. I could always rely on her creative ideas and talents to make our group projects go above and beyond expectations.

Please know that she was a great student and friend to have at Suffolk University. I am incredibly grateful for the positive impact she had on my life. On behalf of the Suffolk community, our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

We were so saddened to hear of this unimaginable loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tate family. We were so fortunate to get to know Annie during her middle school years, through youth lacrosse seasons. Her happy and sweet personality was full of fun and her mega-watt, ever-present smile was contagious for her teammates, made coaching fun, and brightened the fields even during rainy games. Our sincerest condolences, Anne, John and Krystina Goroshko☘️💚
