Anne passed away at age 90 on August 24, 2015 at the Ventura Townhouse Memory Care Unit. She was born in Rumford, Maine on March 23, 1925 to Vittorio and Stella Vatalaro and was the youngest of 8 children. Anne was married to Christy J. from February 19, 1947 until his death in 2011. She enjoyed traveling, reading, socializing and collecting Ana Lee figures which she used to decorate for every holiday. She especially enjoyed Christmas and hosting her friends at her annual Christmas Eve celebrations. She had a quick wit and loved to laugh; she enjoyed being the center of attention, had a keen sense of style and took great pride in her appearance. Anne is survived by her daughter, Andrea of Oxnard, son, Chris of Frankfurt, Germany, granddaughter Randi (Brad), grandson Curtis (Frances), and her four great-grandchildren.
Anne’s family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Premier Hospice & Homecare, 21300 Victory Blvd, Suite 640, Woodland Hills, CA 91367. We extend our gratitude to the staff of the Ventura Townhouse Memory Care Unit for their outstanding care and committed service to Anne over the last 18 months and to Premier Hospice for seeing Anne through her final days. There will be a small open house celebration of Anne’s life on Sunday, September 6 from 2-5 pm at Andrea’s home in Oxnard.
