Ann (Scroggins) Haddon, 44, of Groton, beloved wife of Thomas Haddon, passed away on Friday, Nov. 16, 2007 surrounded by her family.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was born in Groton on Sept. 26, 1963, and was the daughter of the late James and Geraldine (O'Brien) Scroggins.
Being a native Noanker, she enjoyed an idyllic childhood, clamming at the Noank Shipyard with her dad and grandfather Scroggins; swimming at the Town Dock; playing at the park; and entertaining her friends in the "Noank Sunshine Club," which was a shed in her backyard. Her love of gardening was evident in the spectacular array of flowers at her home.
Annie had a very special place in her heart for her beloved Pug Molly O'Brien, her devoted companion of 17 years who predeceased her in February 2007. The courage, strength and perseverance that Annie showed throughout her illness will be a testament of her determination to fight to continue to be a mother to her young children, and a wife to her husband.
Ann was a communicant of the St. Mary Mother of the Redeemer Church in Groton.
Besides her husband, she leaves her two children, Andrew and Heather Haddon of Groton; her husband's children, Jonathan Haddon of New London and David Haddon of Mystic; two brothers, Michael Scroggins and his wife, Rei-Anne, of Palm Coast, Fla. and James Scroggins and his wife, Brenda, of Mystic; three sisters, Lindsay Ashton and her husband, Jay, of Noank, Patricia Stenz and Elizabeth Rowley, both of Groton; her goddaughter, Kelani Scroggins of Palm Coast, Fla.; and her aunts, Leola O'Brien of Old Mystic and Virginia O. Brown of Jacksonville, Fla.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2007 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mystic Funeral Home, Route 1, Mystic. A mass will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at St. Mary Mother of the Redeemer Church, 69 Groton Long Point Rd. Everyone is asked to go directly to church on Wednesday morning.
Burial will follow at St. Patrick Cemetery, River Road, Mystic. The family invites you to visit www.mysticfuneralhome.com for our online guest book and directions.
