Anne was a loving wife of 60 years to Mark J. Sullivan Jr., who cared for her throughout her illness and was by her side up to the moment she departed this world. Anne was a beloved mother to Mark J.

She was great-grandmother to Jackson Beaulieu. She was recently predeceased by her grandson Justin Beaulieu. She gave her all to family and loved them with all her heart. She will be greatly missed.    

Anne worked as a hairdresser for 50 years. Her career started at Grace's House of Beauty followed by James of Ridgefield, both located in Ridgefield, CT.  After moving to Florida, she worked at Annette's Beauty Salon and then Ruth's Partners in Design. She was loved by her co-workers and customers for her humor and loyalty.
