Ann V. Fetes
Ann V. Fetes, age 63, died at home on Friday, April 19, 2013 with her husband by her side, and surrounded by family and close friends.
Born in Buffalo, New York to Robert and Marilyn Vidler, Ann graduated from East Aurora High School in 1967 and Buffalo State University in 1971. She spent most of her career in the healthcare industry with Blue Cross Blue Shield in both Rochester, NY and Wilmington, DE. After retirement, she became a talented event planner for the Delaware State Park System. Ann was a member of St. David's Episcopal Church and enjoyed reading to the children at the day school there. She had recently been chosen for the vestry — an honor she was proud to receive. As a history major in college, Ann was a natural docent at Winterthur Historical Museum and loved to share her knowledge with visitors. Ann had many hobbies including reading, gardening, cross stitching, feeding and watching birds as well as her frequent visits to Cape Cod. She will be remembered as an amazing cook, and for her incredible sense of humor and kindness.
She is survived by her husband, Larry F. Fetes of 31 years; step-son, Christopher Fetes (Michelle); sisters, Phebe Lyn Cook, Sue F.V. Rakow (Donald); as well her nephews Nathan and Ben Cook and Aaron, Todd and Alexander Rakow.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 25th at 1 pm at St. David's Episcopal Church, 2320 Grubb Rd., Wilmington, DE 19810. The family will greet people after the worship service at a reception. Interment will be private.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Ann's name to St. David's Episcopal Church.www.mccreryandharra.com
