She was an avid reader, and started each day doing a crossword puzzle.

A cook from a young age, Anne was known for her gourmet desserts, especially her pies, and was never happier than when she was hosting a houseful of family and friends. She was a member of St. Mary’s Church, the Knightsville Seniors, the Italian Cultural Society, and a founding member of the “Sewing Group” social group.

She is survived by her loving children, Rosemary Rucker and her late husband Richard, Catherine Joseph and her husband Chuck, Carol Aucoin and her husband Donald, and Edward Iaciofano and his wife Susan.  Anne was the cherished grandmother of Patrick Rucker, Kyle and Daniel Joseph, Matthew and Christine Aucoin, Cory, Ryan and Christopher Iaciofano.
