Bargellini, Anna - Newton  
Anna Cioni Bargellini was born in Florence, Italy July 5, 1922 to Ruggero and Clara Chirici Cioni. She was married September 8, 1941 in Florence, Italy to Pier Luigi Bargellini and died July 10, 2015 in Tepoztlan, Morelos, Mexico. She is survived by her husband of 73 years. She was predeceased by her brother Paolo and is survived by her younger sisters and their spouses, Beppina (Gianni) Ricciarelli of Florence, Italy, and Paola ( Raffaele) Bernetti of Hinsdale, Illinois and their children and grandchildren. She leaves her loving children: Clara (Gabriel) Camara of Tepoztlan, Mexico, Angela (Richard) Nielsen of Newton Highlands, MA., and Leonard Bargellini (Leslie Moldow) of Oakland, California and by her grandchildren: Lara and Anna Nielsen, Gabriela and Carlos (Jenny) Camara, and Sylvia Bargellini. She delighted in her great grandson Lucas, son of Gabriela. She attended the Conservatory of San Niccolo di Prato, Italy, a school for girls which began as a monastery of Dominican nuns in 1323. The sister superior there, Suor Cecilia, was Anna's own mother's best friend and Anna enjoyed her time there very much, making friendships which lasted until the end of her life. Anna regaled her family with tales of the refectory in particular. From 1950 Anna and her family lived in the United States, first in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, then Morton and Media, PA, followed by Clarksburg, Maryland, then Wellfleet on Cape Cod, MA, then Seattle, Washington, followed by Oakland, CA. After spending many winters in Mexico she and Pier Luigi moved permanently to Tepoztlan, Mexico. An extremely creative woman who was surrounded by exquisite beauty since birth, Anna had a very good eye. She excelled in painting (though she never painted again after her marriage at the age of 19), sewing, quilt making, embroidery, crocheting, knitting, weaving, copper enameling, wood carving, pottery, gardening, and cooking. She was always on the lookout for horse manure for her compost pile. She loved the Wallingford Art Center in Pennsylvania which opened many worlds for her. She was as dynamic and energetic as she was reserved: deeply Tuscan, without frills, affectations, and compliments. She was frank and straightfor-ward. In recent years when she was napping, her fingers automatically would knit as she slept. She loved walking on the ocean and did so with family and friends, collecting seaweed that would help her compost heap, and also stones for her yard. She traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States and lived one year in Shiraz, Iran with her husband and son. She also visited Japan and New Zealand. While living in Wellfleet, she was an active member of the Garden Club and the Italian Club. She repaired library books at the Wellfleet Library every Monday morning with her friends, something she was very skilled at doing since she was so good with her hands. She was at peace when she died in her sleep, a blessing for us all. After she was laid out in her home, surrounded by flowers which she would have loved, a funeral mass and prayers were said in Tepoztlan, followed by cremation, as was her wish. She is dearly missed.
