Anne Theresa Anderson

08/08/1944 – 04/27/2024

Anne Theresa (Farrell) Anderson, 79, peacefully passed away on April 27, 2024 in Scottsdale, Arizona. She was surrounded with love and in the presence of her husband of 58 years, Jack Anderson.

Anne was born in Revere on August 8, 1944 to Frank and Mary Farrell. She shared fond memories of growing up in Revere with her siblings, Frank “Chickey” Farrell and Tommy Farrell, both of whom precede her in death. She especially loved spending time with her Nana, Grace O’Brien in Winthrop.

Anne graduated from Revere High School in 1962. Post high school, she worked at the Massachusetts State House Department of Labor as well as at Eastern Airlines.

Anne and Jack married in March of 1967, after having known each other since 5th grade! Jack first saw Anne when she came off the school bus at Julia Ward Howe School in Beachmont. Whether it was the long single braid of red hair or the way she carried her books, Jack knew then and there that she was the one for him. Years later, Jack asked her to go to the Junior prom, and the rest is history.

In 1967, Anne and Jack decided to start their family. They shared four children: John, Lauren, Meridith and Ryan. Anne was “Nana” to five grandchildren who she loved dearly: Devyn, Cameron, Brooke, Anabelle and Gianna.

Anne and Jack were blessed to live in a number of the nation’s most coveted locales, having left Boston for Los Angeles, then moving to Honolulu, San Diego, San Francisco and Dallas. Upon retirement, they returned to San Diego, where they lived for 20 years before moving to Arizona to be close to family.

Anne truly enjoyed her role as a mother and homemaker and filled each of her homes, gardens, and meals with love and grace. However, there was nothing she cherished more than being a Nana to her grandchildren.

Anne’s final days were spent peacefully at the Hospice Sherman House in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her family by her side.

A celebration of Anne’s life will be held on June 1 at 11:30 a.m. in Barrington, RI where friends and family will gather to share stories and laughter in memory of a life well-lived.
