Anne Marie (Keefe) Chamberlin

MILLERTON — Anne Marie (Keefe) Chamberlin, 66, died unexpectedly in her home on the evening of Aug. 28, 2018. 

Born on Nov. 5, 1951, she was the third child of the late Jean (Floyd) and Edward Keefe. 

Anne spent her childhood in Amenia but was a resident of her home on Coleman Station Road  in Millerton for her adult life. She graduated from Webutuck Central High School in 1969.

Anne was a devoted mother and grandmother who enjoyed spending her days cooking meals and sending food home for her children and their families. Anne had many talents. She enjoyed trips to Daisey Hill Farm and Paley’s Farm Market, buying plants and herbs so that she could garden and fill her porch with beautiful pots of flowers.

For many years Anne had a passion for antiques that she both sold and decorated her home with. She filled her home with beautiful things and her flair surely showed when you entered her home. 

Anne could paint, sew cross stitch and turn anything she got her hands on into something creative.

Anne was very proud of her Irish heritage and loved anything Irish right down to the bumper stickers her kids teased her about. Anne’s children agree that they could go on but realize that there are not enough words or days on Earth to express their love and appreciation for their beloved “Ma.”

Anne is survived by her “world:” her children, John, Juliet and her “baby” Jeanna; two grandchildren whom she adored, Mackenzie Anne and Hansy Cortsen; and her children’s spouses, Lacy Simonton, Landon Johns and Hans Cortsen Jr.

Also surviving are Anne’s sisters and their spouses. Kathleen and Gus Tancredi and Mary Jean and Neil Hoss; her sister-in-law, Diane Keefe; her Baltimore family; and several nieces and nephews. 

Anne is also survived by the father of her children, Linden Chamberlin.

Anne was predeceased by her parents and her brother, Patrick Keefe, whom she missed dearly.

A memorial service was held on Sept. 4 at 11 a.m. at Immaculate Conception Church in Amenia. Burial followed at the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Amenia, where Anne was laid to rest with her parents. 

Memorial contributions may be made to the Little Guild of St. Francis, 285 Sharon-Goshen Turnpike, West Cornwall, CT 06796.

The Kenny Funeral Home has care of arrangements.
