FEINS, Ann Novick Died peacefully at the Mt. Carmel Nursing and Rehab Facility on November 7, 2016. She was born in Boston, MA, July 16, 1922 to Abraham and Rebecca Novick. A graduate of Simmons College, she met and married Melvin George Feins in Boston in 1945. They moved to Laurence, SC, until 1954 when they moved to Manchester, NH. One of the frst of the "back to work moms", she taught Home Economics at Mt. Saint Mary College and later Nutrition in the nursing program at Saint Anselm College.

She never encountered a problem that she did not firmly believe could be overcome by hard work, ingenuity, and perseverance. Particularly during her final years, she was a constant source of inspiration to her family and friends. She is survived by her three children, Dr. Richard Feins and his wife Ceil Feins of Chapel Hill, NC, Dr. Anita Feins and her husband Dr. Steven Lampert of Boston, MA, and Dr. Robert Feins and his wife Debra Feins of Bedford, NH. She always took great delight in the accomplishments of her grandchildren; Sam Lampert and Jennifer Moisi, Ben and Courtney Lampert, Eric and Katelyn Feins, Jonathan Feins and Courtney Harris, Rachel Feins, Carly Feins, and Madeline Duffy Feins. She is also survived by 5 wonderful great-grandchildren.
