Anson, Stuart Chapman - Brewster  
BREWSTER , Mass. - Stuart Chapman Anson, 80, of Brewster, Mass., passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Monday, June 22, 2015. His last few days were a quick downturn following several years of decline from increasing COPD and advancing macular degeneration. Stu, as he was known to all, was born July 10, 1934 in Worcester, Mass., the son of the late Stuart Minton and Alice (Chapman) Anson. He is survived by his much-loved family, Deanne (Beede) Anson, his wife of nearly 59 years; a son, Douglas Anson and his wife, Amy, of Amherst, N.H.; a daughter, Amy Jo Bershaw and her husband, Alan; and three cherished grandchildren, Abigail Anson, Josh Anson, and Jayme Hupfer. Additionally, he leaves two sisters, Jean Abel and her husband, Ed; and Betty Pickering, all of Brewster, plus numerous nieces and nephews and their children. Though Stu grew up in Worcester, his heartfelt home was always the Chapman family land shared by aunts, uncles, and cousins all descended from great-grandparents who purchased their homestead and barn "up the lane" during the Civil War. Stu's family cottage echoed others of that vintageā€¦ a hand pump for well water, an ice box for refrigeration, digging a pit for a garbage hole, the bay was your bathtub, great fun on land and water, but also learning skills needed for such a life. This time greatly influenced his life direction and devotion. Following high school, Stu entered Carnegie Mellon University in 1953, majoring in Civil Engineering. Of his varied campus activities, his ties to his strong Alpha Tau Omega chapter created a memorable lifetime bond. He met his wife, Dee, at their Freshman Dance, beginning a steady romance from then on. They married before their senior year and graduated together l957. The Ansons moved to New Britain, Conn., where Stu had been recruited to become an engineer with Southern New England Telephone Company. The following year found them at Fort Knox, where Stu was assigned to the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers battalion, a treasured time period which included the birth of their son. Back in Connecticut, Stu returned to varied engineering and construction management positions with SNET, while also attaining his MBA from the University of Connecticut. Now with two children, the family moved to Berlin, Conn., where Stu became very active with the Kiwanis Club, serving as its President in the 1980s. He was also an active member of the Berlin Congregational Church, where he served on numerous committees. After Stu's retirement in 1988 with 30 years of service from SNET, he was more able to travel to the Cape, address family and property needs, and prepare for relocating to the old family homestead, which they soon purchased and began extensive efforts on house and barn. In 2002 they became year-round residents, continued house renovation, and moved into their home in 2003. Joining the Orleans United Methodist Church, Stu soon became an active member of the Board of Trustees, where his stewardship for property was valued. This past year he has worked toward design alternatives for a needed walkway connecting the parsonage and its parking with the church. A memorial service was held on Monday, June 29 at the church. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Stu's memory toward this walkway and sent to OUMC, P. O. Box 1565, Orleans, MA 02653-1565.
