Anne is also survived by countless friends from elementary and high school, college, work, and her old neighborhood in East Northport and current one. Anne had a unique quality of staying close to all her friends, loving each one of them by caring about their lives, and giving herself in thought and in effort when a need arose. She was especially devoted to the families of her childhood friends, Karen (Ierna) Petrie of Miller Place, NY, Ivy (Weil) Lewis of Croton-on-Hudson, NY and her dear friends and former colleagues, Gina (Brown) Director of Greenlawn, NY and Margaret (Cush) Grasso of Smithtown, NY. She enjoyed traveling and in recent years embarked on visiting all the states with her parents, brother and her close and beloved friends, Lisa Farina of Staten Island, NY and Janet Rohrssen of East Northport, NY. She reached 48 states! Her home was open to everyone, and she was always entertaining, hosting Friday night dinners, wine tastings, and a themed Labor Day party that grew in size each year, to name a few. Anne donated to local area food pantries and at Christmas, donated toys to her and her parents’ churches and with her mother, provided clothing and toys for entire families through Huntington’s NAACP.
