Anne was born in Dallas, Texas, to the late George August Redmon and Lillian Faye (Ferguson) Redmon, both native Texans and proud of it. Anne attended St. Agnes High School and Missouri State University, both in Springfield, Mo., before marrying Bill and moving to South Windsor in 1973. Anne worked in early childhood education at the Bloomfield Early Learning Center for eight years before devoting her time to raising her family as a loving mother. She was active at St. Francis of Assisi Church, serving on the Parish Council and Ladies Guild, and volunteered at her children's schools. After her children were grown, she worked with her husband, Bill, at Steeltech Building Products. Anne held dual citizenship in the United States and Ireland, and had built a family home in Ireland to be used by future generations to ground them in their roots.
Along with her husband, Bill, she is survived by her three sons, Christopher of New York City, Shawn Keohane and girlfriend, Beth Lepter, of Vernon, Ryan Keohane and girlfriend, Stefanie Wnuck, of West Hartford; her brother, George Michael Redmon and wife, Terre, of Springfield, Mo., and their three children, Kim Schank and husband, Tyson, Stacey Butler and husband, Sam, and Kevin Redmon. Anne was a loving wife, mother, sister, and a devoted friend. She will be dearly missed by all those who cherished her.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday at 10 a.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 673 Ellington Road, South Windsor. Burial will follow at Wapping Cemetery, South Windsor.
Her family will receive friends Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Road, South Windsor.
Anne was very proud to be part Cherokee Native American.
