Anne Marie “Annie” (O’Donnell) Woods, 96, of West Suffield CT, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, with her family by her side, in the comfort of her home. Known as “Annie” by family and friends - Annie was born in Springfield, MA, the eldest of four daughters of the late Patrick and Amanda (Martin) O’Donnell. She was raised and resided in Enfield and was a graduate of Enfield High School. Annie was predeceased by her husband of 20 years, Thomas L. Woods. After meeting her beloved, “Tom”, they moved to West Suffield, where Annie lived for the last 47 years. Annie was a former parishioner of St. Patrick Church in Enfield, and then became a founding member and life-long parishioner of Sacred Heart Church in Suffield. She was a retired Account Manager for Connecticut General (Cigna) and previously held many positions at the former Bigelow Sanford Carpet Company. Annie maintained many diverse interests and served her community as a volunteer throughout her life. As an avid gardener, she was a Garden Therapy, 25 year volunteer at Parkway Pavilion Enfield, and a long standing member of the Suffield Garden Club. She also served as a volunteer for the Red Cross, the Suffield Emergency Aid committee and Sacred Heart Church. Annie was always surrounded by her beautiful books as she was a voracious reader and history buff, a crossword puzzle enthusiast and like many of the family members, an avid Boston Red Sox fan.
Anne Marie was predeceased by a sister, Lillian M. O’Connor, three brothers-in-law, John F. “Jack” O’Connor, Joseph P. “Joe” Angelica, John F. “Jack” O’Brien, and a nephew, John P. “O.B.” O’Brien. She leaves two sisters, Mildred O’Brien and Irene Angelica both of Enfield and was the beloved aunt of seven nieces and nephews, Timothy O’Connor and his wife Barbara of Agawam, who cared for Annie during the last year, Kevin O’Brien and his wife Susan of New York City, Mary Ellen Kempton and her husband Fred of Bourne, MA, Amanda Vesce and her husband John of Somers CT, Anne Neuser and her husband Steve of Claremont, NH, Jeffrey Angelica and his wife Patricia of Somers, Daniel Angelica and his wife Julie of Enfield, a niece-in-law, Martha O’Brien of Suffield, thirteen great-nieces and nephews, eight great-great-nieces and nephews, and a dear friend, Laverne O’Malley of West Suffield. The family would like to offer a special thanks to Annie’s caregiver, Laurie Judd, the staff at Silver Linings Home Care and the compassionate nurses from Vitas Hospice. The funeral services will be held on Monday, August 12, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. from the Browne Memorial Chapels, 43 Shaker Road, Enfield.
