Anne was my Mother’s 1st cousin. Her Dad and my grandmother were siblings. Anne, sister Dorothy , brothers David and Louis were all a part of my childhood. Friday nights Anne and Dorothy (who were inseparable to a degree) would come by our house to visit, talk about everything and make my grandmother laugh to the point of tears. If they didn’t come it was a too quiet Friday night.
Anne was a PT who went into VNA eventually. I went into nursing and also VNA and loved sharing war stories of the job with her. Anne was a caring professional under her tough persona and no other PT I ever worked with held up to Anne’s standard of getting the patients back up onto their feet.
Anne was close with her family.
Her niece Anne Marie Fayan is the next generation glue who I deeply respect for all the care she has given to her Aunts, Uncle and Mom and Dad.
When Dorothy died a couple of years ago it left a huge hole in Anne’s heart. Now she can be with Dorothy (my Godmother)again. Rest well Anne.

Condolences to Anne’s family. Ann and I worked together in a professional manner for many years. Just recently we were neighbors and enjoyed visits with her as well as many conversations on the phone. Ann was a kind and giving person . She will be greatly missed by myself and my husband, Bill.

I had the pleasure of working with Anne back in the 70’s at the Fall River Visiting Nurses. She was a kind and professional lady. I learned so much from Anne , in the caring of our clients. Sincerely, Sue Crepeau

My sympathies to Anne’s family. Anne was a cousin in- law I suppose to my dad, Norman Rivard. The lines get blurred after many years of “family”! Anne was a good friend to my parents. And I think of her often. Especially at Christmas when my adult children put out their Christmas stockings which were a hand knit gift from Anne 30+ years ago. I recently spoke with Anne and as always had a vibrant conversation. She will be missed.
