Anne Ruth Gedeon
May 8, 1921 – November 8, 2020
Norwich - Anne Ruth Gedeon, age 99, passed away on November 8, 2020 at the William Backus Hospital.
She was born May 8, 1921 in Cleveland, OH, the daughter of the late Earl and Ruth (Bingham) Baughman. She married the late Louis P. Gedeon May 22, 1941 in Cleveland, OH. Upon her husband's passing in February 1978, Anne moved to CT to be closer to her son's family. Prior to her move to CT she retired from the May Co. department store in Maple Heights, OH. Subsequently, Anne was employed on a part time basis at the Styles Furriers, in the Norwich Town mall, for many years. Her gift wrapping skills were impeccable and always in high demand during the holidays. Anne was a avid and accomplished baker and loved sharing the "sweets" with family and friends. She also loved to dance whenever she had the chance. One of her fondest memories was her being recognized as woman of the month, by the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper, for her outstanding contributions to the war effort during WWII, while her husband was away serving in the South Pacific.
Anne is survived by her son Louis Gedeon of Norwich, daughter Patricia Noonan and her husband Vincent of NY City, by her grandchildren Dustin Gedeon and Nicole Barile and husband Christopher, and by her great grandchildren Sawyer and Harper Barile.
Funeral Services will be private for the family.
