Wiswell, Anne C.
Anne Campbell Wiswell, age 25, died unexpectedly on August 11, 2014 in New York City. Annie was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she lived until 1992 when her family moved to Southport, Connecticut. After graduating from high school, Annie studied at both the New School and Hunter College in New York. From an early age Annie was a dedicated violinist, whose greatest love was chamber music. She was a member of Trio Alliance, the Premier String Quartet at Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, and for many years attended the California Summer Music Festival in Monterey, California. Nothing brought her greater joy than to share the gift of music with others. Also an avid hiker, Annie took great pleasure climbing in Vermont and New Hampshire. This past January she and her father climbed Mt. Lafayette in White Mountains of New Hampshire, and Annie had plans to
hike the length of the Appalachian Trail in 2015. Survivors include her loving parents Peter and Rena Wiswell of Fairfield, her brother David, his wife Shana and their son, Campbell, of New York City, her grandparents, George and Harriet Wiswell of Southport, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, who all loved her very much and will deeply miss her vibrant spirit. A memorial service to remember and celebrate Annie's life will be held at Southport Congregational Church on Saturday, August 23 at 11 a.m., followed by a reception in Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers her family requests that donations be made to Chamber Music Central, 157 Roseville Road, Westport, Connecticut 06880.
