Anna Gedrys passed away peacefully on June 7, 2018 at the age of 96.
She was the first child of Thomas and Eugenia St. Germain and raised in Worcester, MA.
She was predeceased by her husband of 49 years Peter Gedrys and her 4 siblings.
Anna is survived by her companion of 16 years Philip Belanger, Celeste Rossi, Teri Gedrys and husband Charles Russo, Peter Gedrys and wife Kathy, 6 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Anna raised her family in Northford, CT. After her retirement from Pratt & Whitney Anna & Peter moved to Orlando, FL in 1986.
Anna was a working mother and the original energizer bunny. If she was moving you better not be sitting around.
Anna enjoyed tennis, ice skating, walking, exercising, swimming and dancing. She was always ready for a party, would initiate many and be the life of the party. She was spontaneous. Remembering how she would crash our baseball games. Run into the street, get the bat and slam one down the street passed all the kids. Always a home run.
She taught us how to climb trees, make mud pies, ice skate but never taught us how to cook. She had a reputation about her cooking – NOT! She would read directions after the food was cooking. One experience when her daughters were making a cake she thought it looked awful. She grabbed a handful of cake and smashed it into Teri’s face. Retaliation was in order. Anna, Celeste an Teri proceeded to have the best food fight.
Peter nicknamed her The Warden when we were teenagers. She would bark out orders that were not to be ignored.
Anna’s memorial service will take place at Chapel Hill Cemetery in Orlando, FL, at 10 am on June 30, 2018.
In lieu of flowers please honor Anna’s wishes and make donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
